## Step 1: WHAT YOU WILL NEED

YOU WILL NEED:

- 2X Tall Glasses

- 1X Small Glass

- A Ruler Or Thin Plastic

- Some Strong Magnets (At Least 2)

- 2-4 Magnetic Coins

## Step 2: SETTING UP

To start with take your 2 tall glasses and place them about 10-30 cm apart depending on the length of your piece of plastic or ruler. Once you have done that put the ruler over the 2 glasses and place the smaller glass below. Now put the weakest of your magnets on the top of the ruler and attach the other one to the bottom of the ruler.

## Step 3: THE TRICKY PART

Now you have completely set up your trick take 2-4 coins making sure that they stick to the magnet (small New Zealand or England coins work great especially the copper ones). Next stick them to the magnet vertically like in the photo and align the small glass below so that the edge of it is directly below the dangling coins. Heres the tricky part, now you will have to gently pull the coins off the magnet making sure not to make any sudden movements or else they could tumble so slowly bring them lower and lower to the edge of the glass until they touch and gently release them. They should stand upright on the edge of the glass and stay there, if not the then try to raise the glass by using some books or cup coasters or realign the glass into a better position.

## Step 4: RESULT!

This is what it should look like when you have finished i hoped you liked it and if it was too confusing then feel free to watch the video. Now you can go out and blow your friends away with your new magic. ENJOY!!

The coins are lightly magnetized, but while the coin touching the rim of the glass seems to rest on one of its notches, I'd think it still takes a very steady hand to get the coins to balance :)

have you watched the video because that only took me a matter of seconds to balance the 2 coins

Ahaaa. I didn't until now. If people see the magnet stack, how can they be amazed?

I once had a pen that stood upright the same way in aholder where the magnets were hidden; one in the pen and another at a little "roof" over it. You could make such a holder, masked as an overgrown coaster. Perhaps add a LED to light up your drink and the coins - would explain the "roof" and add eye catching effect :)

you can also slowly remove the magnets and get the coins to balance on their own!!!! thats very amazing!!!!!!!
