Simple Magic Coin Tricks

Mar 13, 2008
Magic coin tricks can be relatively easy to learn and are fun to perform. They take some practice to perfect, but it is worth it.

For this magic coin trick you will need two coins. I recommend that you use a penny and a nickel.

You'll need a volunteer for this trick. Press a coin into the hand of someone in your audience. They need to hold the coin with their palm flat and facing upwards.

You will then explain to the person that you will grab the coin before they can close their fingers around it. You will hold your hand with your fingers slightly separated over the palm of the person with the coin.

You will then attempt to quickly pick up the coin with your thumb and first three fingers.

The volunteer will believe they're faster than you are. And they'll be convinced because they still feel a disc-shaped object in their palm... which turns out to be another coin.

It's loads of fun to learn how to do magic coin tricks, but there are times when you may need someone's help to effectively pull one off. Ask a friend to assist you with a trick, and make sure they won't reveal to anyone else how the trick is done.

Do begin, put the coin on the palm of your friend's hand and then put the other coin in your hand, right in that crease between the forefinger and thumb. Now position your hand so it looks as if you're going to grab for the other person's coin.

When you reach for the coin, tell your friend to slowly close their fingers since you still need to get the hang of this. Then you'll take the coin and just as quickly drop the coin you've been palming into their hand, in the same exact spot the other coin was.

Now tell your friend to close up their hand. As you keep practicing, you'll get better and faster at it. Your friend will then be able to close their hand as fast as they possibly can.

After you have the coin trick down, you can try it out in front of an audience. Do not close the trick by showing you have the coin that was originally in their hand. Let them open up their fist and see that they have a different coin than the one they started out with.

Magic coin tricks are a favorite for kids. This is a great trick to use when kids are going to make the bulk of your audience.
