John Carney takes you beyond the French Drop, with a demonstration of some of the most off-beat and baffling methods to effect the vanish of a coin.

Carney is known for making his sleight of hand look effortless, and here he shows you how that is done, whether it’s an advanced technique, or as simple making a Thumb Palm more natural, or a French Drop more deceptive. These details are what separate the accomplished practitioner from the neophyte.

Each entry is a lesson unto itself, with the proper technique and approach to create a truly startling, deceptive illusion. These are lessons that apply to all your sleight-of-hand, teaching not just tricks and moves, but a proper understanding of universal principles.

Who better to teach you than John Carney?

One of the best - if not the best - teachers in magic ... [provides] the tools needed to do great sleight of hand with coins. It gets my highest recommendation.

... thoughtful and insightful ... the knowledge I've gained goes far beyond vanishing a coin. This is one of the very few DVDs I will watch again and again.

New to coin magic? This DVD will save you from making the first 25 mistakes, putting you on the right path. Been doing coin magic for decades? You’ll enjoy seeing more than two dozen vanishes done perfectly, and refine your misdirection. John's friendly, avuncular teaching style, make this a great resource for all magicians.

It's like having John hanging out with you giving personal instruction. His discussion on focus and being relaxed can and should be applied to all branches of our craft. Quite simply stated, this DVD is a masterclass from a true master of his craft. Worth 10 times the money.

There are lots of magic videos today with dramatic music, cool edits, lots of sizzle, and even more hype. "Vanishing Coins" delivers the steak. This is a mother load of thoughtful and mature instruction and advice for real-world workers. Thanks!

This like all of John's teachings is outstanding. A private lesson would cost at least 3 times as much and you might get one or two moves. It is so worth it.

Do NOT pass this up if you are serious about your magic.
