This 50+ year old video gives us a glimpse at the mastery Cardini had over coins. I especially like his production of four coins from Edge Palm/Classic Palm around the :40 mark. This rare footage was shot on a cruise by a Dr. Morris Young and has been lovingly restored by Steven Max Droge.

Cardini on Coins
Cardini (Richard Valentine Pitchford) was a British stage magician whose career spanned from the 1920s to his death in 1973. Cardini was also a 3-time President of the Society of American Magicians. Although he is best known for his stunning card manipulation performed while wearing gloves, he was also quite adept at coin manipulation.
