Copper/Silver/Brass is a classic magic effect for good reason: it’s a highly entertaining and deceptive coin routine where three different coins vanish and re-appear under apparently impossible conditions. It has been a feature effect in the repertoires of many of the best close-up magicians for decades. But how can you improve a masterpiece?
Jack Carpenter has with his “Carpenter Coins” set, produced by Vanishing Inc. In this routine, you start with a Mexican Centavo, an imitation Chinese coin and a half dollar and make each one cleanly jump from your pocket back to your hand. Then, two of the coins transpose with another, before finally all vanishing and re-appearing in your pocket. In all, there are seven moments of killer magic in just two or three minutes!
