Countdown Coins (Rocco Silano)

  • Difficulty: INTERMEDIATE
  • Category: MONEY MAGIC
  • Product Type: MAGIC TRICK

Many years ago, Rocco came up with a coin gimmick that can be used to display four US Quarters while instantly changing to three Quarters, then two, and finally one Quarter, it can also be shown in reverse, going from one to four Quarters. The displays can be made one handed which allows for a very clean in the hand’s coins across. Rocco’s original routine (which is taught in the tutorial) fooled Dai Vernon.

The utility device can be used for many different routines, both stand-up and close-up. The tutorial includes easy, intermediate, and advanced coin routines that are taught by Rocco Silano, Dr. Michael Rubinstein, and Meir Yedid.

You will learn several coins across routines, a multiplying coins sequence, a vanishing coins sequence, a quickie where four Quarters turn into ten Dimes, and much more.

Routines include: Change Maker, Total Coin Vanish, Countdown Coins Across, Countdown Coins To Glass, Fastest Countdown Coins Across, Vanishing Countdown Coins, One To Four Countdown, Change To Bill, The $1.25 Trick, and Paper To Metal.

Comes with a custom-made coin gimmick using US Quarters, ditching props, and access to an online video tutorial by Rocco Silano, Dr. Michael Rubinstein, and Meir Yedid. A Meir Yedid Magic product.

    This review by David Regal appeared in the May 2023 issue of Genii Magazine.

    The effects possible with this useful, deceptively simple gimmick are myriad: A handful of quarters turns into a handful of dimes. A hand is closed on a pile of quarters, one quarter is removed, and the remaining quarters vanish. Four quarters are displayed, then magically transform into a one-dollar bill.

    If this was all that could be accomplished with this gimmick, it would be a good value at $45, but you can also learn a routine that Mr. Silano used to fool Dai Vernon--a visual coins-across routine in which quarters displayed in one hand vanish one at a time, silently, only to reappear on the other side of the body. A similar coins-to-glass routine is also taught. The video explanations are by Mr. Silano, Meir Yedid, and Dr. Michael Rubinstein (who offers up a couple of effects including a coin-to- nest-of-bags routine). The included gimmick is not of the “mechanical” variety, it is the sort of thing that, at its core, has been done in different ways for many years. Here it is reimagined and improved to allow for some easy-to-do tricks as well as more challenging routines. In addition to the gimmick, one receives materials that allow a performer to ditch the gimmick while standing up, ending clean. The product is well made and should last a lifetime.

    Considerations: This is not a self-working trick. It is a clever gimmick that can be combined with basic sleight of hand to produce a variety of effects.
