Hi,
Picking the size of the coin you're going to work with is very important.
I like the Kennedy Half Dollar.
There are some gimmick half dollars you can add to your coin tricks.
In the beginning I would used a quarter.
I was young, I bought the Bobo coin magic book.
This is one good book, the J.B. Bobo's Modern coin magic.
I Graduated to the fiftycent. :lol:

Don't worry about the size or meatyness of your hands dude, haha, my fingers are shocking ! Im 25 and have broken them all bar the thumbs playing footy, I am missing a knuckle on one hand and a tendon is the pinky finger of another and I have no troubles handling coins, try different coins out, its what suits you the best. The half dollar was a good starting coin for me personally. Practice classic palming a coin just by having a coin in each hand when doing normal everyday things, like watching TV, or having dinner, practice all you can ! !

I would buy Michael Ammar's Easy to Master Money Miracles after you have gone through and studied and practiced the material you are about to recieve extensively. I wrote a review for each dvd in the Trick Review section. You might wanna check those out.
