Flipover Balance

(180k)

Description A coin is moved from the palm to the back of the hand to a balance on the back of a finger.
Start Hold the hand out palm up and place a coin on the tip of the middle finger.
Directions
  1. Grab the edges of the coin with the sides of the index and ring fingers.
  2. Move the middle finger away from the coin and curl it in, pushing up on the inner edge of the coin and rotating it 90º.
  3. Bring the back of the second phalanx of the middle finger against the coin and rotate the hand 180º.
  4. Straighten the fingers and release the grip with the index and ring fingers to finish with the coin balanced on the back of the second phalanx of the middle finger.
  5. Reverse the moves to get back to the start.
Comments Not very fancy but useful for other tricks when a coin needs to be transferred to the back of the hand.
