How to Perform the Vanishing Coin Trick
Now here are some amazing things you can do with a quarter. Disappear. Reappear. And go through my hand. Now, the secrets on the vanishing coin. Well I should say the secrets of palming because that’s how we vanish the coin at this particular time by the use of three different palms. Classic palm, finger palm, and the thumb palm.
The classic palm, the coin placed right in the center the top over the hand. The finger here pushes the coin in and the hand contracts. This is the third finger that push the coin in the palm and contract the muscles and it will stay and you turn your hand over. That’s the classic palm. Now you can see it. From that position, the hand is empty. It’s here, the classic palm.
Now we have the finger palm which is even easier. The coin is placed from that position on the ring finger and you just contract the finger slightly. And the coin is held. The finger palm, just slide it in that way. And hands just hanging limped, relaxed and the way you use that is this.
This is the technique of the thumb palm. The quarter is rest on top of the first and second fingers of the right hand. The fingers are curl in slowly and they push the edge of the quarter into the crutch of the thumb—. And this is the way that is utilized. The quarter is held above the open left hand. And as the right hand and fingers are pretend to place the quarter into the left palm, they execute the thumb palm lastly. And the left fingers close over the right fingers, apparently, holding on to the quarter. The left hand in squeezing motion and open slowly, showing the quarter has vanished.
But of course, as you know, the quarter is secreted under the right thumb. And you can reproduce it anyway you want pretend to take it from your jacket or whatever. Okay, well the finger palm is similar, a lot of possibilities.
