You may have seen a magician make a coin disappear or double right in front of your eyes leaving you completely clueless as to how it was done. Here’s a secret- you can do it too!

With this simple trick you can make a coin seemingly vanish into thin air I front of a crowd. How is it done?
First, put on the rubber band around the fingers of one hand without drawing attention to yourself. Now spread the kerchief over your hand. Some part will be over the rubber band. You can either use your coin or take one from one of your guests and place it on the little pocket created by the rubber band underneath the kerchief. Let go of the rubber band gently and the coin will automatically be secured into the little secret pouch, invisible to others. Wave the kerchief and show your guests how it’s done.
2.Coin Vanish Trick 2
You need :
Cut the foil paper into a square and press the coin hard on it so you get a good imprint. Now trim the edges and make it of the same size as a real coin. You can cover all coins with this foil paper and press hard so they all look similar. Put them in a hat or cup and show that there are four coins in all. Put your hand inside the hat and crush the one that’s only foil paper and lift the other coins secretly in your hands. Discretely drop the little-crushed paper. Open your hands and voila! There will now be three coins instead of four.
3.Triple The Coin
You need :
This trick’s success lies in its simplicity. You need nimble fingers with this one. First, take the two larger coins and stack them horizontally between your index finger and thumb. Now place the smaller coin vertically against your index finger and thumb in such a way that the other two coins are hidden. When you show your hand to the audience, only the small coin should be seen. Smoothly slide down your fingers and close your palms. When you open them there will now be three coins instead of one.
4. Vanishing Coin With A Cloth
If there is one trick that is bound to be a sure shot hit with your guests, it is this one.
Measure the mouth of the glass and cut it out on the black chart paper. Paste it over the glass’s mouth. It will give the illusion of the table being empty when you place it on the black-clothed table. Keep a coin on the table. Then lift the glass with a cloth (this is an important step that helps conceal the black chart paper you have pasted at its mouth) and place it on top of the coin. Remove the cloth and the coin will have vanished! Well, not really, as it will right under that black chart paper but hey! No needs to know that except you, the star magician!
5.Vanishing Coin With A Long Sleeved T-Shirt
You need :
For this trick to work, you need to wear a long-sleeved t-shirt and a face full of confidence! Take a coin and place it on the edge of your palms. Tell your guests you are going to make it disappear. Slightly lift your hand and let the coin slip into the hand of your t-shirt. Show the others you haven’t hidden it on your hand and show them your bare arms by rolling up your sleeves. Coin gone! Since you have rolled up your sleeves, the coin will remain secure in the folds of your sleeve.
Now its time to bring it back.
Do a bit of fast reflex and bring down your sleeve, the coin will roll down to your palm. Close your palms swiftly and open them. The coin will appear and with it, many calls to do it once more.
