This is a magical trick that needs some practice. But once you get the hang of it, you will be able to fool almost anybody. You will make a coin pass through a sealed coolbox in front of your amazed audience.
Tools you need:
– A clean coolbox/tupperware with a lid
– Two coins (should be identical)
– A playing card (I choose the Ace of Spades).
– Sticky tape (double sided is preferred)
You will also need good practice, your imagination and intellectuality so as to present the illusion to your audience effectively.
The performer shows an empty coolbox, a playing card and a coin. Then he/she seals the coolbox in front of everyone and places the coin on the top of the coolbox. Finally, the performer places the playing card on top of the coin, gives the card a few big slams and suddenly, the coin appears inside the coolbox. Nice right? Very impressive if you do it right. Now let’s see what’s the whole trick behind this illusion.
How to prepare for the magic trick
First some preparation. Always required. Take the coolbox lid and the first coin and with the use of the sticky tape, stick the coin under the lid (this is why double sided tape is recommended). Take the playing card and put some sticky tape on its one side making sure its cloaked and can’t be easily seen. If you choose a black Ace you should find the space to hide the sticky tape so its not visible.
How to perform the magic trick
After you are done with the preparation process (very important), let’s see how you can actually perform the trick. First of all take the sealed coolbox and show it to your audience. Take the lid of and put it aside not paying too much attention to it. Remember, there is a coin under it, so you don’t want your audience messing with it. Emphasize on the empty coolbox and let people see it, touch it, making sure its empty. Do not let anyone examine the lid (or the playing card).
Next, take the empty coolbox from the audience and carefully seal it with the lid. Now place the second coin on top of the lid then put the playing card on top of the lid and the coin. The second coin should now be taped to the playing card (remember the sticky tape on the card?). All that’s left to do now is slam the playing card (and the coolbox) so as to cause the first coin to drop from the lid inside the coolbox! If this does not happen with the first slam, then give a few more. This will draw more attention to your performance.
When you make sure the first coin has dropped inside the coolbox, remove the playing card (and the second glued coin) and don’t let anyone examine these. Take the lid off in front of everybody and put it aside (it should still have the sticky tape under it). Give the coolbox with the coin inside to your audience to examine it. They should be impressed! That was all! Before I leave you, I want to remind you the first rule for any magician; Do not present a trick to the same audience twice!
