Start Start as for the Four Coin Roll Down but with five coins held in a stack.
Directions
  1. Perform the Four Coin Roll Down but finish with two coins held between the ring and pinkie fingers.
  2. Arrange the fingers so that they form a circle when looking down on the fingertips.
  3. Tilt the hand so that the thumb side of the hand is below the pinkie side of the hand.
  4. Let the top coin slide from between the ring and pinkie fingers to be caught against the thumb.
  5. Grab this coin by pressing it between the thumb and pinkie fingers and continue sliding it out to finish the flourish.
Comments
When rolling two coins to a position between the ring and pinkie fingers you can arrange it such that the two coins do not form a perfect stack, but the top coin is slightly offset and closer to the palm. This will make it easier to slide it off and to be grabbed by the thumb.

When learning this trick you can just practice the last 3 steps by starting with three coins. Roll two down to the ring and pinkie fingers while one is held between the thumb and index fingers. Now roll the top coin from between the pinkie and ring fingers to a position between the thumb and pinkie finger.

Larger coins will also make this trick easier. With the coins in the above image I had trouble learning to pull out the fifth coin without the coin between the thumb and index finger falling out of its grip.
