Bring other hand down from above in a grabbing motion.

2. Bring your other hand down from above as if you are going to pick up the coin.

Drop coin into palm of lower hand and remove other hand , at the same time closing the fingers on the upper hand.

3. As you close your hand, drop the coin on your lower hand. Keep the top hand closed and remove the other hand. The spectators will think that you, the magician, actually took the coin with your upper hand.

Classic Palm Vanish

Coin is shown in coin plam position.

1. Start the magic trick with a coin in the centre of your palm up hand. The coin should be in the palm position ( see photo, fleshy part at base of thumb should keep secure in hand, pushing it towards the centre of the palm).

Pretend to throw coin into other hand.

Close fingers in upper hand. Crefully dispose of coin.

3. Close the hand that now seemingly " holds " the coin and get rid of the actual coin in the other hand somehow by magic( with misdirection ).
