Reviews 0 J. Ask for a coin, and perform some of the tricks in this book. Because you will not have been aided by special stage apparatus, the results will be all the more astonising. As tricks with coins are so readily improvised, they are among the most impressive forms of legerdemain.

Worth every coin! No magician should be without this book. The book is appropriately broken down into chapters that go from the basic sleights to most major facets of coin magic.
You start with the foundations of coin magic, the utility switches, the vanishes, and the palms. There are literally hundreds of tricks to choose from in this tome so plan on spending a lot on time on the varied chapters. A few downsides to this fabulous book. First, the book is no longer "modern" as some of text is from a by-gone era. Largely, the text translates well into modern patter and attire.
Second, a lot of the new, types of coin gaffs are not covered by this book. Overall, this book could keep you busy for years. Did this review help you? Add to cart. This book has been in my library for years, and it continues to be a constant source of great information and magic for me. This book is essential. Just get it already! For any magician into coins, it all starts here. You need this book. COin magic is almost all of what I do and I learned a ton from this book.
A few of the tricks are a little outdated but others are really good and can work wonders for you. WIth a lot of them, you can grab a coin and do a full 20 minute show with it. Others might require 2 or 5 coins. My favorite part is the Okito story, how it came to be. If you are into coin magic in the slightest bit, then you need this book! This is like an encyclopedia of coin magic. Bobo goes into grave detail discussing many different vanishes, appearances, tricks, etc.
He even covers topics such as shells, coin magic on stage, and sleeving. There are so many illustrations in this book; it makes it very clear and easy to learn. I highly recommend it!
For the serious coin worker. This is a very thorough and in-depth book, but I think there are better options for those of you looking for coin routines to add to your acts. Just imagine "In the Beginning There Were Coins" but in book form and with a truckload of more material. Every single magician needs this book. You will learn all the basics and lots of intermediate and advanced stuff.
At the end there are 17 full routines that were put together with tricks from the book. My highest recommendations.
