Amaze friends and family by mastering the easy coin tricks in this Howcast video series.
You Will Need
- Half-sheet of paper
- Half-dollar coin
- Magic wand (optional)
Place the coin in the center of the paper, and fold the paper in half from bottom to top, leaving the top about one-quarter inch short of meeting the other edge. Turn the paper around so the short edge is on the bottom, facing you. Hold the coin in the paper with your right thumb.
Fold the edges of the paper so that you appear to seal the coin inside. Fold the edge on your left outward, toward the audience, and then fold the right edge on your right the same way.
Fold the bottom
Fold the bottom, lipped edge away from you, to the front. This will leave an open slit in the bottom for the coin to fall out, but it will appear from the audience's point of view to be sealed inside the paper.
Shake coin out
Shake the paper to show that the coin is really sealed in. The shaking will let the coin secretly fall into your palm shielded from the audience by your fingers. Palm the coin.
Bring out wand
Reach into your pocket for your magic wand with the hand the coin is palmed in and drop the coin into your pocket while bringing out the wand. Tap the paper with your wand three times.
Rip the paper
Tear the now-empty paper envelope into pieces to show that the coin has vanished.
