I recommend you start out with Modern Coin Magic by J.B. Bobo.

i am ok with coins. if someone asks me to do a coin trick, ill do mexican jumping coins (sankey) or mr clean coins across (sankey).

but when i do mexican jumping, i split the first qurarter into 2, then "split" the 2nd into "3". then i do the routine like sankey, and make the "3" coin disappear with my own vanish, which is cool. it looks like i toss it in the air and it vanishes in mid air. then i do goshman pinch on one coin to show now we only have one coin left. and i ditch that in my pocket. then i give them the quarter if it was borrowed

Pick up a copy of Modern Coin Magic, 4 half dollars, some English pennies, a copper/silver coin, and you are set.

i would get royal road to card magic, or if you like flourishes, get jay sankeys 45. i dont know how good those are for starters, i dont have many books or DVD's but the ones i have are pretty much all in the list above. when i was a begginer, those are the things that got me goin.

LOL. Kevin- he is asking advice for coin magic, so Royal Road to Card Magic wouldn't be a very good choice.

I agree with Bobo's book.

I would look into some David Roth DVDs or videos. They are a bit more advanced, but you learn quickly with him...at least I did.

Definitely get the book. Its under $10.00 in many places!

Michael Ammar DVDs are also very informative if not a bit pricey...
Get the new Jay Sankey DVD too! 35 coin routines.. you can't go wrong
