A few years ago, I released my Escapist Coin routines which came with the gimmicked coins and an instructional DVD. Although it sold out a while ago, many people started doing my rubber band version of the routine using the inexpensive versions of the original Downs/Brema coins.
I just had a few coin sets made and decided to re-package and re-brand them with an online tutorial. The band version always gets great reactions because of the visual aspects of the revelation that is explained in the tutorial.
Although I have not performed it for non-magicians in a while, I do remember the fantastic reactions I used to get when the penny starts spinning on the rubber band they are holding and slowly slows down to show that the dime is really gone. What always struck me as funny is that they would immediately want to examine the normal dime while completely ignoring the gimmicked penny in their hand (which is also examinable).
You get two strong coin routines for casual situations, that are very easy to learn, and are examinable at the end.
Show two coins and a broken rubber band. The coins are an American penny and a dime that have small holes pierced through them. Thread the penny and dime on the rubber band and have a spectator hold the two ends of the band so the coins are trapped in the center.
You then pull on the coins and let them snap back, so they spin and bounce on the band. When they stop spinning only the penny is on the rubber band and the dime is found in your hand. It was seemingly plucked off the rubber band in a magical and impossible manner. Everything is examinable at the end.
Includes additional props for a second routine where a dime is sandwiched between two pennies on a coffee stirrer and impossibly disintegrates between them. Happens in the spectator’s hands and everything is examinable at the end.
