How To: Do the French Drop Coin trick

Do the French Drop Coin trick

Where the coin goes, nobody knows. Except you!
You Will Need
* A coin
* Dexterity

Step 1: Show the coin
Hold the coin between your thumb and fingers, palm up, the coin horizontal.

Step 2: Reach in
Reach in with the thumb and first finger of your other hand, as if to take the coin. Let the coin drop past the grabbing thumb and into the palm of the original hand.

Step 3: Palm the coin
Palm the coin in your dominant hand, between your thumb and first finger. Close your other hand and move it away as if it holds the coin.

Practice passing your hand in front and dropping and palming the coin to perfect the sleight-of-hand.

Step 4: Open for reveal
Open your second hand to reveal that the coin has magically vanished.

Step 5: Make it reappear
Make the coin reappear in your original hand by passing it from your palm to your fingers and opening your hand.
