Dr. Michael Rubinstein is considered one of the best coin magicians and creators in the business. This video was recorded in Philadelphia in 1986 during a live lecture where he performed and explained some of his best routines.

The highlights of the video include tutorials to two of his best known and most popular techniques: The R.O.P.S. Move and Matting.

The video also serves as course in coin magic that will inspire you to learn Michael’s many techniques that you will likely incorporate into your performances.

Routines and techniques performed and explained:
►Crazy Coins Across (The Specciolini Brothers): Three silver coins vanish one at a time from you left hand to join a copper coin in your right hand. The last coin takes a crazy detour when it momentarily arrives in your mouth on its way to your right hand.
Techniques explained: The Rubinstein Click Pass, Fingertip Rest, R.O.P.S. Move, and Utility Switch.

►Stand-Up Sucker Copper-Silver Routine: A guessing game using a copper coin and a silver coin where they keep changing places, traveling across and as a surprise finale they completely vanish. This is the routine that Michael won a creativity award for at the MAES Convention.
Techniques explained: R.O.P.S. Click Pass, and Backwards Gallo Pitch.

►Matting: Many people consider Michael’s Matting technique to be one of his best creations. It allows you to easily do lapping and sleeving routines while standing. This section of the lecture was not included with the original release of the video and DVD. You will learn how to do a complete vanish and retrieval of a coin using this technique.

►Twilight Zone Wild Coin: Themed around a street vendor on the Twilight Zone who received four dirty copper coins who realizes that as he tries to clean them, they turn to gold. But reality sets in and they all go back to being dirty copper coins.
Techniques explained: Touch Change, Nail Grip, Drop Switch, Spellbound Changeover Palm, and Thumb Palm Switch.

►Quadra Coin Reverse Matrix: A Matrix routine using four different coins that are covered by cards. Three of the coins vanish from under their playing cards to reappear and join the fourth coin but as a surprise ending the third coin does not travel but instead all the coins go back to where they started.
Techniques explained: Paul Harris Steal, Ed Marlo Steal, No Pick-Up Move, Double Steal, Marlo Scoop Vanish, and Card Lever Load.

►Matchbox Treasury: A matchbox opens by itself; a match is produced and lit. A coin appears from the match as the match turns into a second coin. As a finale the matchbox changes into a jumbo coin.

►Triple Coin To Card: An adventure with a signed card and a spectator signed sticker on a coin. The coin vanishes and reappears under the card, this is cleanly repeated two more times and the signed card and sticker are handed out as a gift. Allowing you to give out your business card as a souvenir.
Techniques explained: Variation Retention Vanish, Twist Substitution, Turnover Slide Switch, Scoop Switch, and Gibson Spider Grip Vanish Rubinstein Variation.

►Silver Lint: A very nice and direct Spellbound routine where a piece of lint changes into a silver coin. The silver coin changes to copper and back to silver several times until it finally turns back into the invisible lint it started out as.
Techniques explained: L'homme Masque Load, The Fingertip Load, Dai Vernon Spellbound Moves, and Snapout Move.
