I want a couple coin tricks I can carry around a few coins anywhere with that will break up my card tricks (mainly to facilitate deck switches).  I'm new at coin magic, so difficult slights are out.  I don't mind if it's a little cheesy as long as it is entertaining (main point is not to amaze, although that would be a bonus).  What do you think fits that criteria?

There is a marketed effect called Gadabout Coins that I think meets your criteria.  There seems to be an updated version and it is on sale at the moment.

That isn't the original routine in that video, its Bauers handling from the manuscript.
The guy in the video is a friend of mine, who is friends with Ron.

Thanks.  I assume this works with quarters okay?  Can't tell with the video but the manuscript talks about half dollars.

I only know one coin trick and that's a coin thru the table effect called The Silver Passage from Gary Ouellet. I use four $1 gaming tokens from the now-closed Caesars Tahoe.

Yes, you need a table lol.

You'll also need to get a close-up pad and a small round compact mirror. The moves are not that hard..I don't do any other coin routine but this one.

If you are performing at a table: Matrix. There are plenty of variations but you can't go wrong with Al Schneider's original handling, IMO.

Since Matrix uses cards in addition to coins, it lends itself nicely to transition between the two and/or help facilitate a switch.

EDIT: I nearly forgot about a great trick that I think would be up your alley, since it is a mental magic/mentalism trick. From Eugene Burger's first Penguin Lecture, I believe the trick is called Fading Coin. Simple, nearly slight free and fantastic. Table needed. The more I think about it, the more I believe you would love this trick!

Rubinstein Coin Magic contains a tremendous amount of carry around routines. I always have with me a purse with an ungimmicked copper, silver, and brass coin. I can do several multi phase routines with just those coins, all from the book. You can also play around with my favorite walk-around pocket tricks like Fusion and Magnetic Coins. And if you just want to carry a few half dollars with you, versions of coins across, stand up through the table, and so many more (Triple Play is a Three Coin Routine, but you only need two coins!). But don't take my word for it, just read the many reviews! Enjoy!!

Primary Movement by Benjamin Earl is one of the strongest impromptu piece! It's my go to!

Ben teaches lots of subtleties/psychology thing behind this piece. No screaming, no nothing, spectator just went silence.

I would recommend getting his Real Coin Magic

All the other routine are just as strong.
