The workings of the Thumb Palm Vanish

Unlike the classic palm which is held right there in the palm of your hand, the thumb palm is where the coin is clipped between your thumb and first finger.

From the front you will not be able to see the coin. You have all the freedom in the world to just move your fingers, it is a nice concealment which gives you freedom to move your fingers around with the spectators seeing the coin in the palm position.

To now produce the coin from your hand, have the coin in your thumb clip and show your left hand empty.  Turn your left hand over, take the pinchers, they come in and pinch the coin from the audience's view. That coin is clipped now.  Your hand then moves down and produces and shows the coin.

So in real time, your hand is shown empty front and back. Clip, or pinched, and then exposed. And now you have a coin miracle.
