|Description||A simple balance where two coins held in a T
shape between the thumb and ring finger.
|Start||Start with two coins held in an edgewise stack between the
tips of the thumb, index, middle and ring fingers.
2 is the only difficult part of this trick (although step 1 might take
a little while to get the hang of). Make sure the top coin is centered
on the bottom coin and that the thumb
is also centered. Otherwise the top coin will slide of to
the side. The movements in step 2 are very small and slow. If you try
and rush that part the top coin will also fall off.
You can reduce Step 2 by ensuring that during Step 1 the coin is pushed further towards the index finger than during a normal Coin Flip. When it lands on top it should have its inner edge centered over the bottom coin and its far edge well over the index finger. This means you can immediately roll the coin backwards into the balance, rather than having to push it forwards first.
To finish the move you can let the top coin drop down into the stack or pull inwards slightly with the ring finger so the coins snap down into a flatwise stack.
