Introduction: Teleporting Coin Trick

Picture of Teleporting Coin Trick

 I've always been interested in magic, but I've always found three problems trying to learn new trick on the internet:
                          - #1 Poor documentation:
                            Either the pictures are too blurry, the video too shaky, or written in broken-up                                         english.  
 
                          - #2 Cheese-factor
                            Many of the tricks that are available for free are pretty cheesy...

                          - #3 Difficulty
                            Let's face it, I have a pretty short attention span. If they are hard, or take hours and                                     hours of practice, I'm not the kind who'll keep practicing for hours...

From my own experience, I can tell you this trick is super-easy (It's not just incredible sleight or hand), the trick looks fantastic and impressive.

      ***I do not claim to have made this trick up, nor have I seen it on instructables, so if you've                      published an instructable before me on this trick, let me know, and I will put a link to your                    instructable here, in the introduction. I am also a representative of Lukowstudios and have                full rights to all content in this instructable. ***

If you'd prefer to just watch a video on how to do the trick, please skip to step #4

Step 1: Example Video

 Here's a short video, showing the trick.

Step 2: Materials

This is a great trick, because you can do it virtually anywhere, as long as there is a flat surface, with only a moments notice. All you need are :

                                                                                - 2 Hands (Priceless)

                                                                                - 2 Quarters (50 cents exactly, I promise...)

Step 3: Basic Movement

Basically by putting one coin on the outer edge of your left hand and the other in the palm of you right hand, (vice-versa if you are left-handed), when you flip your hands quickly, the coin in your left hand will be flung (if you do it right), exactly under where you're right hand lands. Because the coin in our right hand is in you're palm, it won't move, and hence both will end up under your right hand. I'm very sorry if this is a poor explanation, but the video and photographs should help.

Step 4: Video Tutorial

 Here is the video explaining the full trick. If you have any questions, I'd be happy to answer, just leave me a comment!

this trick can be done without the table, you just need to close your hands while you turn them down.it's a bit more diffcult but looks a lot greater. oh and you shouldn't put the coin in the edge of your hand, it makes it looks suspicious. whatever, grat trick!!

it's a pretty cool trick. I saw it at a bar once. The guy who showed it to me taught me how to do it. If you get it wrong, the person will know how to do it.

lemonie (author)2009-12-14

Yea that shows it pretty well, all one needs is practice?

 Hi Lemonie,
Yes, it took me about a day to be able to do it as shown in the video.

lemonie (author)geekazoid2009-12-14

That sounds about right, but since you've shown it well. I'd say anyone can learn it - good job done.
