Buried Treasure!

For every single popular coin routine in magic there are probably 20 hidden treasures, effects that are fantastic and look like real magic, but for any number of reasons did not make it as big as I think they should have.

Today's bit of hidden coin magic awesomeness is

"Money Doesn't Grow On Trees" from Bill Citino's Coinsomnia - The Random Conjurings of a Sleep Deprived Mind is a tight 3-coin production and vanish with a very nice bit of misdirection at the end. As the third coin is produced, it vanishes taking the first two with it!

I have been using this for my restaurant gigs lately and the reactions are fantastic! It's quick and clean and really gets people's attention. It plays perfectly as an opener for table work because you control the pace of the effect. The routine includes a reproduction of the coins, but I like to end at the complete vanish of the 3 coins then move into another effect. There is no odd hand-washing or weird gimmicks to control which gives the routine a nice pure feeling. It's everything you could ask for in a coin routine.

The link above is to show you more about the book and the awesomeness inside. If you want a copy you can get it directly from Bill for just $25 (a steal!). Email Bill at citino93 @ hotmail.com, you'll be glad you did!
