Coin From Pen Cap - David Williamson
Chocolate Coin - Paul Harris
These are 2 very quick, simple effects, but that’s actually what makes them so valuable. David Williamson’s Coin From Pen Cap is actually one of the coolest, organic, high concepts with a coin in the last 50 years. Almost nothing puts you in such a perfect position to use the primary technique in a close up situation, and the visual impression of the large coin coming out of the small opening is, in a word, wonderful.
The Chocolate Coin is one of Paul’s more quirky creations, but as with the Coin from Pen Cap, what we have is a high concept that transcends the moment it happens. Chocolate coins are so firmly entrenched in peoples mind that whoever sees you perform this effect will already have an anchor for it in their memory, making this one of the effects a person might recall whenever the topic of chocolate coins comes up.
