You borrow a coin from a spectator. You ask the spectator to sign the coin, on both sides, to verify that it is their signed coin that you are using. You show the spectator a balloon and ask them to place their signed coin inside the balloon. You then inflate and tie off the balloon. For effect, you can shake the balloon to verify that the signed coin is still inside. You then proceed to do the impossible; you start to pull out the spectators signed coin from inside the balloon. The spectator will see the coin emerging from the balloon. You then show that, in fact, there is no hole in the balloon for the coin to emerge from. As an additional kicker, you can burst the balloon and then show it repaired.

Best signed coin effect ever! Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on October 7th, 2012
The method is so clever and simple to execute, yet will appeal to everyone from Professional to the casual performer.
Anytime you can use borrowed objects ( bills, coins, rings ) the magic is elevated. LATEX offer two classics of magic: a penetration and a restoration.
In LATEX, you borrow a quarter and have them sign/initial it, just as you do with a signed card effect. That same quarter is dropped into the balloon and inflated. You shake the balloon and they can hear it rattle inside. And then their signed coin penetrates the balloon.
At first they just see a bit of silver. Slowly, more of the quarter becomes visible, until they can begin to see their signature. More and more of the coin slowly passes through the balloon, until it pops free.
The balloon is unharmed and the hole has healed!
Pop the balloon and perform the second phase: the restoration. Bits of the popped ballon are gathered and re-inflated. They can keep the balloon and signed coin as souvenirs!
Perfect for restaurants, parlor, strolling, birthday parties or MC work.

The secret is ingenious...I've never failed to amaze with this trick. Takes just a little set up and you can make an infinite number of gimmicks yourself with NO trouble whatsoever.
Very easy, and very mystifying.
Loved the effect. Report this review

This is a very well done effect. Once the prep work is done you are basicly clean. Very little "work" required with an excellent return.

I was never interested in any coin/balloon plot until I watched the demo for "Latex", and I am very pleased with my purchase.
Very cool Report this review

I was pleasantly surprised by this effect and the method was something I hadn't guessed. I think this DVD is well worth the price--you can do this for kids or adults. You can buy a bag of balloons at a party supply store (or even a dollar store) and they would work for this.
Hard setup Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on June 22nd, 2013
I think this is a very smart and well made trick but i gave this trick a 4 star review because for me the setup was VERY difficult and i had to buy extra balloons. If you have the time to do the setup then you are ready to perform the best trick you've ever seen :)
Genius but very difficult Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on January 17th, 2013
The whole routine is absolutly genius. Everything is extremely clever. I am admiring how smart it is.
The bad point for me is that it is extremely difficult to blow up. The basic sicret preparation is very simple, but the complete one is ... well I couldn't manage to complete it. Also the balloon can easily pop too soon ... in a strange way...
I won't perform it despite it is genius.
Latex Report this review

This is a pretty cool and visual trick. You need to follow the video carefully, it is the little things that make or break this trick. One issue I have heard was how difficult it is to blow the balloon up. I am fortunate to have an air compressor, I inflate the balloons prior to assembling the gimmick. This stretches them out and makes it much easier to blow up. I was surprised at how well received the trick is. People love it.
Extremely Visual Coin thru balloon Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on May 13th, 2013
Got my DVD a few days ago and as I was watching, I just thot, what a creative guy. This is right down my alley as I work with balloons everyday. To add beautiful effects like Latex to my performing will be a pleasure. What you see in the demo is what you will perform, once you get the handling down. Give this illusion the practice it deserves. There is a bit of setup involved, but it's easy. Unfortunately not impromptu. If you saw a pile of balloons at a party, you couldn't just pick one up and perform. There is a little bit of prep, but that could be done in a bathroom.
This prep doesn't turn me off the effect though. I'm a Balloon Twister of 28 yrs so could have a number of these set up read to go, taking breaks from balloon twisting when I have a good crowd. The quarter can be borrowed and marked. The handling for this is very ingenious. The illusion is perfect. If you could really pull a quarter out of a balloon, this is how it would look. The camera angles could be a little better in a few spots, but that doesn't really cause any problem in understanding anything. Two different handlings are shown. Prep can easily be done in under a minute. Angles could be a bit of an issue, but just careful audience management will rectify this. If you are looking for a VERY visual illusion of a coin penetrating a balloon, this is worth checking out. I'm very happy with my purchase. Now to buy some balloons so I can get to practicing this. Add to cart.
