"Dime & Penny
by Royal Magic
The included instructions explain 4 different tricks that can be performed with the Dime & Penny.
TRICK 1 EFFECT:
Display a dime and penny on your left palm and ask a spectator to extend his right hand, palm up. Place the dime on his palm, and then place the penny on his palm. Place your right forefinger on the two coins. Now ask the spectator to close his hand around both coins and your finger. Slowly remove your finger from the closed fist. Reach into your pocket and remove a dime. Comment on the fact that you are now holding the dime. The spectator then opens his hand, showing that he is holding only the penny.
TRICK 2 EFFECT:
Display the penny and dime on your outstretched left palm. Close your hand into a fist. Reach into the closed left hand and remove the penny. Hand the penny to a spectator, and ask the spectator which coin he would rather have, the penny or the dime. Of course he will think you have a dime concealed in your closed left hand. He will say he would rather have the dime. Take back the penny and slowly open your left fist to show the dime has vanished. You can tell him that if you can't have the time, no one can.
TRICK 3 EFFECT:
This effect reduces forty-one cents to thirty-one cents. You use the Dime & Penny set, a nickel, and a quarter. Lay out the coins overlapping in your left palm. Ask the spectators how much money is there, and they will respond "forty-one cents". Take a pen (or pencil or magic wand) and push them over each other until they are all in a pile and once again ask the spectators how much money is there. This time when they respond forty-one cents, slide the coins apart, and to the spectators' surprise only thirty-one cents can be seen.
TRICK 4 EFFECT:
Place a dime on the back of your hand. Place a penny on the back of your hand so that it overlaps the dime. Using the forefinger of your other hand, press down on the two coins, and the dime passes right through your hand, dropping from the palm of your hand down to the ground!
