Today during the Saturday Session (Nov 11, 2017), I demonstrated this effect but I think the quality of my video camera is not that good and the effect could not be really appreciated. I recorded this demonstration so you can see it better. 

I call it "Another Vanishing Coins in Box." It is not the final version of the effect. I think I want to incorporate the move into a larger routine and do it just once. 

I hope you like it...

That was wonderful! I enjoyed every bit of it. 

I'm a novice coin worker. What kind of box are you using?

Thanks! It is just another coin box that not a lot of people know about or use. But with it you can do very nice effects. It is a box that can be an Okito box, a Boston box and/or a combination of those.

And in case you did not notice, the name of the box is in the previous paragraph. Sorry about being a little cryptic, I couldn't resist. If you did not get it, send me a PM and will tell you the name. I did not want to say it in the open section of the forum...

If you know the "move," you can try it with a regular Okito...

Got it! Thanks. Do you know if I can possibly get one of these for Morgan sized coins? I did some searching, but didn't find anything.

I think they don't make them anymore. Whatever is in stock is what is available and I know they made them for half dollars or smaller coins (I have a smaller one). I seem to remember that is what the instruction sheet said. I also think they were made in India.

As I said before, if you know the move you can try it with a regular Okito box (for Morgan coins). I did it with a half-dollar sized box and it works but only for one coin. I will do that move for only one coin in another routine because if you do it 3 times in a row, it may give the move away. I did it like this just for demonstration. Done once to vanish a coin will make the move more magical I think...

Here is a comparison between the two boxes I own. As you can see they look very similar but the one on the right is a little smaller and a half dollar does not fit inside. I had to adapt the effect to local coins.

I haven't seen larger boxes for Dollars so I wouldn't know if they make them. But these pictures demonstrate that they made them in at least two different sizes.

Very nice - have never seen this before. Makes me want to post a video of my coin flite routine.

FYI - as a retired machinist, if there are effects or ideas anyone would like custom made, please feel free to drop me a note.

Made of hexagonal brass to hold 4 quarters with hole thru the center. Comes with a small bag - coins travel from the bag to under a cup.
