Looks totally impossible- but it's so easy, once you know the secret!
Simply hold a transparent glass in your hand.
Put the silk into the glass.
Drop a coin into the glass.
Drop a ping pong ball into the glass.
AND HERE COMES THE MAGIC!
Pull the silk out of the glass.
The ball is still in the glass, but the coin is now OUTSIDE the glass, in your palm or on the table!
Yes, it is the SAME coin!
In fact, you can have your spectator sign the coin before it is dropped into the glass!
You can use practically any coin you want.
Peter uses a half dollar because it is big and impressive.
You can use a quarter if that's what you have handy.
You could, of course, use a dime or a penny, but those smaller coins are not as impressive!
You will get the plastic glass, the piong pong ball, and the silk!
And if you ever want to do the trick with a different color silk, or you want to get a fresh silk, we sell great 9" silks here at MagicTricks.com.
