I just had the honor of watching a skilled magi perform this for me.When I first seen him do it I said WHOA!!then I ran over and said show me that again then I bugged him till he showed me how but anyways let me describe this effect for those who dont know.the performer displays a half dollar in this case a half that was pressed to half its thickness anyways the performer drops the coin from above hand to hand then lays his palm up and places the half in his hand next his other hand goes above about 12 inches then magiclly the coin rises up throu space and time into the hand above when i first seen this I was totally amazed then he went on to tell me that a 12 yr old kid makes it levitate almost 3 feet into the air.by the way i was talkin to another magician about the move and he told me that its not good for us card workers because it can cause carpel tunnel but now I just cant seem to stop tryin its the most excited Ive been about learning a move even if I only knew 1 great coin trick this would be it.

I believe what you are referring to is the muscle pass. It isn't hard, but takes lots of practice and your hand will hurt for a while.

Here's a link with step by step with pictures. You will need to properly identify the hold being displayed to access the area though. This keeps curious onlookers out, so if you are serious, you will know what hold it is.

Has a few other vanishes in there as well.

Overall I'd Recommend Bobo's book or some Ammar videos.

The picture is displaying a back palm.... not a muscle pass. In there you will find how to properly execute a muscle pass. It takes practice.

There are some other "basics" in there as well.

It's John Cornelius' "Coin that falls Up" using the muscle pass. You can learn it on the Classic Renditions video Volume 1 on the Floating Bill by Michael Ammar. It'll take a while to get a decent height, but once you get it down, it has become one of my favorite quick tricks to do at the restaurant
