China Change makes a great gift for the beginner. The basic move of the effect will aid in learning the "Classic Palm," a skill required for more advanced magic routines. Display the half dollar on the fingertips of your outstretched hand and slowly bend your hand into a fist, concealing the coin. Immediately open your hand to reveal that the half dollar has changed into a Chinese coin! The coin may be examined. From Sterling Magic.
