The Coin Through Mint Box is a fantastic trick to learn and its a bit of a gimmick trick. Its something you can do if you carry the Tic Tac box around with you.
Tic Tacs are a mint that people chew on to help freshen breath. This trick will allow you to show a penny penetrating the box and fool your audience into thinking you have magically pushed a penny through the mint box.
So what do you need? You need a mint box and two identical pennies, the new (or shiner) the better.
The secret is in loading the box ready before you perform. There are ways of doing this like opening the box up, gently pushing the coin onto the lip of the box the pushing the lid down catching the coin behind the label.
The other way is to pinch the box making a little gap where the coin can slip into nicely behind the label of the mint box.
The rest of the trick is explained in the video below and also the clean up is ingenious so the spectators only ever see one penny, and not two!!
One also good tip is to keep the pennies looking the same direction, so if you place the coin in the box so after the shake the head is showing, make sure as you have the other coin in your fingers, that the head side is also showing, it keeps the trick very symmetrical.
Lets watch the video below and recap after we have watched the trick.
