This is similar to the classic sucker Die Box effect, but performed with
a large "Chinese Coin" instead of a die, you get the same sucker effect,
in a much more compact prop, and the same audience visibility as a die
box of similar size. The performer displays a slim cabinet with two
doors, covering two compartments. A large "Chinese gold Coin" is
dropped into the cabinet from a slot on top, and is completely visible in
either compartment through two large cut-outs in front of the cabinet.
The doors of the box are closed, and the box tilted, (the audience can hear the coin roll to other compartment),
then one door is opened to show that the coin has vanished. Spectators are not impressed; they ask
you to open the other door. You close the door initially opened, tilt the box, and open the other door. This
will have even the slow ones in the audience screaming to tell you how it’s done! Finally you open both
doors to show that the coin has indeed vanished. You shake and tilt the box from side to side, and it is completely
empty. The coin is then reproduced from any place you wish.
