Magic Lessons #7 – Vanishing Coin Magic Trick
One of the best ways to learn magic tricks is to teach magic tricks.
The Vanishing Coin Magic Trick teaches you how to make a coin disappear and it’s a perfect trick to teach to others.
By teaching magic tricks it makes you stop and really think about what you are doing. The Vanishing Coin Magic Trick is a great example of this.
What is the exact sequence of moves I am doing? How do I break that down into steps to explain it to someone else.
This process of forced thinking about magic tricks often ends up with you figuring out another or even a better way to do the magic moves, a better way for you to incorporate misdirection into your magic tricks, a better and more comfortable and deceptive way for you to hold the magic props.
Ken and Julian both noticed they became better magicians by teaching magic tricks to other people. Not by showing hard moves but by understanding the construction of simple magic tricks and what makes them work.
This vanishing coin magic trick is really easy to do.
It makes a perfect impromptu trick as most kitchens are where you will find a napkin and a coin to make vanish. Many people carry clean hankies and everyone has a pocketful of spare coins. Doing this with borrowed items makes the magic trick appear much stronger.
How to Return the Hanky:
Of course how are you going to give someone’s hanky back to them if it has the vanished coin secretly hidden inside it?
– You can ask to keep their hanky for just a few minutes longer to show another magic trick.
– You simply drop the hanky in your lap and gently slide the coin out as you pretend you are looking in your pockets for something to do the next trick with.
– “I’ve got a better idea, has anyone got a knife I can use” and upon saying this, you bring the hanky back out and you are now CLEAN.
Watch the extra video below to see how this trick can be done wonderfully well by a 4 year old magician.
