Magician shows a chinese coin with a hole through the center in the right hand. The right hand is closed over the coin and a pencil is pushed through the closed fist. The right hand is now opened and a half dollar is seen and placed onto the table. Magician then comments that he made the hole disappear! The half dollar is picked up by the right hand and the pencil is pushed through the fist again. When the right hand is opened again the chinese coin is seen again! The right hand is closed again and the pencil is pushed through the fist again. After the pencil is removed from the fist the magician states that his spectators must think that he is using two coins. The magician states that this is correct when opening the right fist two coins are revealed, a brass washer and an English penny! The washer and penny are placed onto the table for examination.
This one requires a little practice to get the moves to look smooth, but well worth the time spent.
