If you've got the apparatus, go with Presto Chango... It's one of my favorites. But, you really should start from the beginning if you've never done coin work..... 8)

It's not like card magic, you can't just "give someone a routine", you need to get an understanding all the basic sleights and only then you'll be able to start learning routines.
When I say understanding the sleights I mean practicing them in front of a mirror and a camera for months and then doing them on real people to really understand how are the angles, what makes you hands look empty, etc.
Coin sleights are very different from card sleights so there really is no point in giving you a routine, the only thing I can tell you is learn the basics, palms, false transfers, switches, etc.

Here are some of the things from Bobo that either are or were in my working repertoire. Most are relatively simple and do not require any gimmicked coins. Before attempting to learn any of them, though, you should be well-versed in most of the material from the first two chapters: "Coin Concealments" and "Basic Technique."

Coin Production from Two Cards
Winged Silver
The Flying Eagles
Chinese Money Mystery
Coin Through a Ring
Silver or Copper Extraction
Copper Penetration
The Expansion of Texture -- Expanded!
The Gadabout Coins
Coins Through the Table
Thieves and Sheep
Miser's Dream
Tenkai Pennies
Nuts to You

This is a great list! After you've become comfortable with the introductory material in Bobo, you should definitely familiarize yourself with these routines -- even if you choose not to perform them -- because many modern routines have these as their foundations.

I thought the last two of them were in the new modern coin magic. Am I wrong or just having a mental block lol. But it's true, that's the basis of pretty much everything you can do with coins. I forget, was silver extraction on that list? I like that one lol. If you want to learn the misers dream though, go to T. Nelson Downs' "Modern Coin Manipulation". my favorite coin book of all time

In the Beginning There Were Coins by Jay Noblezada is another great source to learn the basics and then build your own custom routines. Although TheCaffeinator has given a great list as well.
