The secret of the trick is the use of two identical coins. In the demonstration the magician used half dollars but you can use any two coins as long as they are the same value. It is what you feel comfortable with. Some people can use a bigger coin or a smaller coin.
You hide one of the coins in the hand you wish to push the coin through. Where you hide this coin is in between the thumb and index finger, this sleight is called a thumb pinch palm.
One you act out the coin being pushed through the hand, the first coin is pulled back into the hand by pulling the coin up the fingers and once the second palmed coin falls out, this causes misdirection.. you then start putting the first coin into palm position .
