It is hard to do without a big coin--like a silver dollar. There is something called a Tenkai Pinch (I believe) that allows you to hold the coin back there, just pinching it with your pinkie. Sankey explains it on a couple of videos such as Revolutionary Coin Magic and Best of Sankey vol 3.

I agree. if you want to do the back palm, you need to have the right size coin. i live in germany and used to do it with a 5 mark piece. we have euros now, so can't do it any more. now i use the goshman pinch (tenkai pinch)(don't feel like arguing about which name is correct). i found this much easier to learn and can move the hand more naturally. still have to watch angles, but that is with most slights.
I would recommend learning this and then doing the back palm. I learned the back palm first, but it always seemed awkward when doing it.

I use the goshman pinch 'cause you can use almost any sized coin and the angles aren't so bad. I'd highly recommend the goshman pinch.
(BTW you can learn it from revolutionary coin magic by jay sankey / on the spot by gregory wilson. High impact routine included in both tapes!)
