Hi all here, my name is Toby Z.. I'm a Close-up magician from Perth Australia. I'm doing professional card magic for ten years, and now I just started to learn some coin magic. Yesterday I watched Eric Chien act. on Asia's got talent, he was AMAZING! Just wondering what's the name of his coin vanish call? Is that his signature coin vanish effect?

Toby, welcome to TMF. We're happy to have you here. When posting questions about televised acts it helps to provide a link. I am guessing that this is the performance of which you are speaking? 




That's a beautiful, well polished act and there's a lot going on. He uses retention vanishes in addition to some other feints and sleights. Which specific vanish were you asking about?

You might also check Zee’s blow vanish, very similar. While you can say it’s a retention of vision vanish it’s not quite a retention vanish as most are use to. There’s a pretty specialized action to it.

I debated posting this because I know I'm being picky, but I watched the video and in every instance when he does the "move", his fingers "pop", telegraphing that something has taken place.  People aren't stupid, they know coins don't arbitrarily vanish and when they see fingers wiggle, I think they are going to know where the coin went.  

I'm going to link a video to Al Schneider's demonstration of a number of vanishes.  In the lineup is his Snapback Vanish.  It is very similar, let's call it the grand-daddy to a lot of the ROV vanishes out there, including this one I think.

Ray, you're right, I guess the younger generation prefer this type of so called 'visual' vanish.

However I believe when Eric put this into a longer routine, it's quite entertaining to watch, like a mini wow moment.

I've been trying to practice this, just to be able to do his Osmosis routine!

Osmosis is one of the most magical routines I've seen.  You have good taste!

By the way, I hope I didn't come off as beating up on Eric, I didn't mean to.  And the move is nice, and I'm sure he fools a lot of people with it.

Thanks for posting that video Anthony.  I like Eric a lot and I hadn't seen that one.

In Rubinstein Coin Magic you can find the Flash Vanish, which looks like Eric's but is easier to execute. A vanish like that needs to be saved for a special moment. I should add that Eric's vanish is simply wonderful, and my own vanish should not detract from the beauty of his move. It is just another method for doing it.
