If i got 4coins in each corner with 1 card covering it each.

Would it be nicer to assemble four coins under audience's bottom left card or assemble four coins under audience's bottom right card. I can do both

Okay, bottom right.

Actually bottom left is better and here's why. In most parts of the world people are trained since birth to read from left to right. Their eyes are conditioned to move that way their whole life. Bottom left is more natural than having to look down and to the right.

Wait, wouldn't it be bottom right because people generally read from left to right and top to bottom?

In your case, the bottom right is the last place they'll look. Since Top Left wasn't a choice, Bottom Left is the next best.

In fact, bottom left is better as it places the coins closer to the spectator.

Conversely, if you want to hide a discrepancy, bottom right would be a good place to do it as it's the "last" place they would look.

This is all from the audience's point of view.
