Piggy Bag Coin Trick

Jay Sankey

Piggy Bag Coin trick is an amazing effect created by Jay Sankey who released it on you tube so we can all learn it for free.

I wanted to share the trick with you as it can be performed impromptu, at a moments notice if you have a one of those zip fastening food bags.

You do need to learn a few moves with the coin to make the effect work.

The thumb palm vanish where you roll you fingers towards the thumb whilst the coin is balanced on the tips of your fingers, you then clip the coin between the base of your first finger and the thumb. This is called the thumb palm.

You will also need to learn the french drop coin vanish which we have a video here where you can learn this utility move more closely.

One tip Jay stresses is to make sure when the coin is placed into the bag, you push as much of the air out of the bag before sealing. This way the coin does stay in the corner of the bag and makes the trick easier to do. 

You can come up with a signed coin approach to this trick but Jay doesn't recommend this. The trick itself is enough to blow the minds of the spectators in itself.

Let us watch the video below and see how Jay performs this amazing miracle and the reveal comes straight after.

Jay Sankey's Piggy Bag Trick Recap

So recap time for the Piggy Bag Coin trick

You will need 

  • one self zip plastic food bag (or baggy)
  • one coin
  • one borrowed coin of the same value.

you will need to learn the french drop utility move and a thumb palm vanish to do the trick.

Once you have set up the bag with the coin in it you can perform this when ever you are ask to perform magic. I tend to do this trick when i perform around tables at a restaurant as the trick is pretty angle proof to the audience.

Remember the ethos of free magic tricks and illusions is practice as much as you can before you perform any trick in public.. And most important is to keep the magic a secret, do not reveal the magic to anyone. 

Let the punters wonder as they don't actually wonder at the trick, the wonder at the magician who performs the trick.
