And simply terrific!
Your spectator cuts a deck of cards.
The card that is on top of the cut pile is set aside.
You place a half dollar into the spectator's hand, and ask him to wave his hand over the chosen card.
The card is turned over- let's say it's the 3 of Diamonds.
And when he opens his hand- the half dollar has a "3" and a "diamond" punched out of it!
Yes- the half dollar is a REAL U.S. half dollar coin!
(And yes, you have to force the card.)
We show you exactly how to force the card in the FREE VIDEO we made for you on this page.
And if you'd like to learn other easy methods of forcing a card, please see the Forcing a Card DVD, available from MagicTricks.com.
You also have to switch the real half dollar for the punched one.
Just watch how Peter Monticup does it in the video demo above.
The cutout MAY VARY. It depends on what the manufacturer is currently shipping to us.
The video demo above shows the routine as performed with a cutout 7 of Hearts Coin.
The photo shows a 3 of Diamonds coin.
The manufacturer sometimes ships a King of Hearts coin, or a 7 of Spades.
The coin you get may vary, but the trick works EXACTLY the same way.
