Lets look at the performance and the method.
What you need is a coin of a decent size and to learn the retention vanish. The retention vanish is a way of keeping hold of a coin in a hand but make it look like the coin has passed from the hand into the other hand.
Its a classic move in coin magic and it is worth learning how to do this properly from the video below. The Teacher is very good at the finger retention vanish and he does explain very carefully how to do it properly.
If you watch carefully you will also see how to bring the coin back into visual by the way you hold the coin in the hand. You basically hold it pinched between 1st finger and middle finger, You then push the coin up with the thumb. It looks very magically.

So you pass the coin from hand to hand then during the last time of doing this you fake the pass and retain the coin in the hand. You pretend it is invisible and place it in the air for safe keeping.
Then when you want the coin back, you use the hand that doesn't have the coin to pick the out of the air and pretend to place it in the hand you are holding the coin. Reveal that the coin is now visible and the trick is done. Wait for the surprises and move onto your next trick.
Its always worth learning new magic and new sleights to help your magic. The retention vanish will be part of your arsenal for many years to come and i am sure you will come across the vanish in other tricks.
