Disappearing Coin Trick – How to Disappear a Coin

While this is purely a sleight-of-hand trick, it will take very little practice to cause the coin to disappear instantly.
Take a quarter of a dollar between the thumb and finger, as shown, and by a rapid twist of the fingers whirl the coin and at the same time close the hand, and the coin will disappear up your coat sleeve.
On opening the hand the coin will not be seen.
Take three quarters and hold one in the palm of the left hand, place the other two, one between the thumb and finger of each hand, then give the coin in the right hand a whirl, as described, closing both hands quickly. The coin in the right hand will disappear up your sleeve, and the left hand on being unclosed will contain two quarters, while the one in the right shall have disappeared.
