CHINESE COIN MYSTERY - Instructions
You are supplied with a magnetic Chinese coin. Normal Chinese coins are not magnetic. This is the secret.
On the back of the coin you need to place a small piece of bandaid which will match a similar tone to the skin flesh on your hands. Make sure it just covers the middle hole. There is a also a magnetic pin supplied.
Use a 10c or 20c Aussie coin for this trick. You begin by having the Aussie coin underneath the gimmicked Chinese coin. You show the coin to your audience and tell them that Chinese coins have a hole in them and that they are unique. They can magically change!
The magnetic pin gimmick is clipped between your fingers in your other hand. With one wave of this hand over the Chinese coin it will pick up the coin and reveal your Aussie coin.
Practice it smoothly and the coin looks as though it will change. Work on making sure you can hide the Chinese coin out of sight once the transformation is complete.
