The general method is to take a coin that’s been sitting out at its back, and flip it in the direction of the “missing” coin (as shown in the photo). This trick is a lot easier this way, since you aren’t looking for the hidden coin, but just the direction it is going in. You do need to be very fast to flip a coin, as shown in the video.
What if I didn’t want the coin to disappear at all? If you didn’t want the coin to disappear, all you need to do is flip the coin three times in a row, after the front side of the coin has been used as your guide. Here’s how it would work:
1. Find the correct direction (you will know the direction when your coin turns over. The easiest way I’ve found to do this is to flip your coin in the direction of the “X” in your coin tray. You will see the coin “fade” off the tray in this direction, and then you just need to put your coin in the coin tray one time over again, and see if it turns over accordingly.
2. Check to see if the coin is coming out of the coin. You should be able to see that the front side of the coin (which is always facing the person you’re trying to trick) is still visible. The back side of the coin, which is usually hidden, is no longer visible (in order to see it, you need to look at your coin tray, which is facing you). If the front and back sides of one coin appear to be completely obscured by the other, that means that your trick has completely failed.
3. Try to flip both coins simultaneously. If they turn over in the same direction, you almost certainly have succeeded. But if either or both coins go to the side, with the back side sticking out more than the front, that means that it still hasn’t succeeded, and you need to move on to step 3.
Here are some more tips on how to do the trick, along with some more examples of it:
1. If you are starting in the wrong direction, and you flip one coin back and forth, without flipping it in the direction first, you are probably going to have a hard time figuring it out.
2. Try to use a coin that has the front edge facing you, in case you accidentally flip it into the direction where you are trying.
