Geoff Latta published From The Elfin Hoard in Stephen Minch's Spectacle (pp 77-83). It is an unpretentious vanish and reproduction of three coins, done efficiently and without all the over-proving usually associated with coin magic. Geoff's story was about Elves and their gold, but I thought the Chinese coins and Vangelis' music gave it a different texture.
There are several great coin effects in Spectacle. I'll be posting another one in the near future.
