Effect: Show the spectator a mexican coin and a half dollar. Get them to hold them in one hand and make sure they can feel two coins in their hand by kinda squeezing the coins.
Then as you say that bet with the spec that you will be able to take out the mexican coin without them feeling anything.
Then out of nowhere produce the mexican coin, let them open their hand and they are left with the half dollar and a totally different coin! (i use australian coins for this)

wait, if this is the same as dime and penny, i think it is, i make the coins go through the spectators hand, then later on if they ask me to do it again, don't let the coin pass through by no using the extra coin and say uh-oh, i made a mistake, the coin is stuck in ur hand, plz don;t sue me!!!

I perform the standard technique, but add some humor to the whole situation. I have them identify the half-dollar and place it on my close-up pad. Then I tell a story on how truly rare the copper coin is (now this story has to be believable and you have to do well telling this concoted tale). I usually mention it is of a rare mint and worth about $300 now days. And when I tell them to put it down on the pad to examine it further, it is a quarter. Needless to say, they are shocked and it becomes even funnier with that story.

I actually do a 6 coin coins-to-cup routine that I begin by showing the centavo and half in my left hand; I pick up a coffee mug with my right hand, close my left around the 2 coins, give a toss, and voila, the centavo drops with a clink into the mug, and my left hand opens, revealing only the haff dollar. I then do a false transfer of the remaining half into my left hand, pick up the mug again, and now the half drops with a clink into the mug, and my left hand opens, revealing it to be empty.

I then take out an additional 4 half dollars (ungimmicked), and proceed to do more coins to cups with sleights, until all the coins have traveled to the cup.

Even though 5 of the six coins travel through basic sleights, I have found that by making the first one travel with the scotch and soda, it really throws people off so that they are never quie sure what to look for.
