I just ordered a few new coin magic tricks from good 'ol Ellusionist.com
I'm looking forward to their arrival and I'll be sure to update the product review here. Here were two of the coin effects that will be added shortly to my close-up arsenal.
SLAM - Coin Merge
SLAM is a coin merge illusion that looks like one step up from the Karate Coin. You borrow two coins and slam them together. The two coins are fused together and can be handed out immediately for examination. I'm always looking for the off beat coin magic trick that is different from the classic coins across, 3 Fly or simple coin vanishes. Check out the video demonstration of SLAM
Silver Dream by Justin Miller
I'm a fan of coin flourishes that vanish and reappear. They all stem from some inner child having coins plucked behind the ear. I liked the presentation of this routine and the independent vanishes look good. Ofcourse for walk-around magic, my go to trick still remains Ron Bauer's Gadabout Coins Revisited, but I'm looking forward to working with the Silver Dream DVD
I'll be sure to update the post with my comments once they arrive in the mail!

This is Blake Vogt’s performance from last night’s America’s Got Talent and, honestly, without the intro piece on Blake loses something important.
