Magic Ian fooled many magicians when he began performing this routine. The basic effect is of a borrowed and marked coin placed on the surface of an inflated balloon is visibly pushed into the balloon. The balloon can be popped to retrieve the marked coin.
It is basically a hybrid of two classic tricks combined with some extremely clever misdirection. Although there have been variations released, by others, since the original, it is still the best and most practical method and includes several alternative variations and handlings.
The original best-seller was released around 1978, with balloons and written instructions, which sold thousands. This video by Magic Ian features the basic routine plus scenes from his lectures where he demonstrates and explains many additional routines and variations using props such as bills, pens, pins, coat hangers, silks and much more.
As a bonus, Ian also explains his handling and method for the close-up and stand-up versions of his Silk In Balloon routines.
