For a lay man I think this is the most visual coins across routine with only three coins and no shells that I can come up with...:
Technics involved:

Classic Palm
Fingertip Rest
Goshman Pinch (GP)
Retention Pass (RP)
Click Pass (CP)

Start out displaying the three coins in your right hand. Then close it into a lose fist, palm down and as you do that put one of the three coins into GP. Slide the two other coins into the awaiting left hand. And say something like: Three coins will go from my left hand to my right hand one at a time. Your right hand have alrwady been shown empty, so now you just close it up and give it a shake.. One coin will now arive in your right hand. Open your left hand, showing only two coins and slide all three coins on to the table. Say: One have gone across. Now do a RP with one of the left hands two coins with the right hand. And say: One. Slightly put it into right hand classic palm, then pick the other coin up at your fight fingertips and perform a CP. Say: Two. Then put the coin that is at your fingertips into classic palm again and pick up the third coin from the table and say: And one over here. Now you put the coin that you just have picked up, into GP. Open your hand a display the classic palmed coin. Turn palm down and give your hands a shake. Now the second coin will arrive in your right hand. Now open your hands and display the coins on the table, saying: Two have gone across. Then pick up the last coin a your right fingertips, saying: The last one can you actually hear arrive. Do at RP into the left hand. Put it into right hand classic palm. Pick up the two last coins from the table and put one of them into GP. Open your hand, displaying only two coins saying: Two coins. Now slightly put the Goshman Pinched coin into the hand and put it into classic palm. Give the left hand a shake and at the same time let go af the classic palmed coin. Open your hand displaying all three coins. Say: All three coins have jumped from one hand to the other!

Recieve applause

Yeah thats right! But Jay is my "Teacher" in coin magic! Understand my right :)
You know! I am very inspirated of him!

Another thing:

What have the biggest impact to the spectators? (in a coins across routine)

1. To tell what is going to happend, and then do it!
2. Or The say what just had happened?

Thanks anyway!

Usually you shouldn't tell what is going to happen to the spectators doing any magic trick, but there are some circumstances where this strenghthens the trick. You just have to experiment.

Saying what has just happened is basically stating the obvious for the spectators. They just saw what happened...so they don't have to hear it. However, you can say something like "So, that's one coin has traveled this distance to my other hand. That was about six inches of traveling; to make it more challenging for myself, lets increase the distance by a foot."

Something along those lines. :D

Thank you for your answers!!

I know that it wouldn't work in my routine to say what there is going to happen after you told me.. but in Mr. Clean - it's a part of the routine that is very strong!!
Am I right??

I like Mr.Clean coins across.I personally use the first two coin transports
of Greg Wilsons 3/4 then use Sankeys for the final coin.
I also lately have been using David Stones "one way" coins across,where
the coins travel to the spectators hand.
