Scotch and Soda
Scotch and Soda is a classic in coin magic involving a copper coin and a silver coin which you can perform and multitude of basically self-working effects that require almost no skill. The trick is named after the cocktail Scotch and soda; the copper coin (Mexican Centavo) represents the “Scotch” and the silver coin (U.S Kennedy Half Dollar) represents the “soda”.
Below is a small sample of the multitude of effects that can be done with this amazing coin set…
The magician shows a half dollar and an mexican centavo in the left hand. He closes both hands and when he opens the left only the half dollar can be found because the centavo has appeared in the right hand!
The magician shows a half dollar and an mexican centavo and places them in the hand spectator. The magician then asks the spectator to put their hands behind their back and pass a coin without looking. Then he asks the spectator to open the hand with the half dollar coin and amazingly, there is a half dollar! But the magician opens his hand only to find a quarter! The centavo has vanished!!
The magician shows two coins; a half dollar and a centavo, and places them on a pad or tablecloth. He then waves his hand over them for but a second and uncovers them only to find one coin! When he lifts the pad/tablecloth, the mexican centavo is revealed!
