Scotch and Soda by Sterling Magic - Trick
Scotch and Soda is, for many reasons, one of the best places to start learning magic.
First, it can be used for many different and impressive tricks. Because the coins are a system of versatile gimmicks, many magicians have invented many great and different tricks using them. Cause the coins to teleport, vanish, change color, change size, penetrate a table, win bar bets, and more! The instructions explain a couple, and there are many more books and videos filled with nothing but tricks using these coins.
As you might guess, there really isn't a definitive Scotch and Soda trick. There are just too many great tricks with the coins! That said, here is a trick we perform all the time at Magic, Inc. and is taught in the instructions provided with these coins.
Effect: Put the silver coin and the copper coin in your spectators hand. Have them close their hand and bet them that they couldn't give you the copper coin without looking. When they try, the copper coin has changed into a quarter!
Second, it's easy to do. These coins are specially machined to make impossible magic tricks almost automatic once you know the secret. Entire tricks can be learned in as quickly as five minutes. You can think of these coins like a calculator: if you know how to use it, you can get an answer that would be difficult to get if you're just starting out. On top of that, at the end of most tricks the coins are totally examinable! The special design of the gimmick lets you give them out to the audience confident that they won't be able to find anything.
Finally, these coins grow with your ability as you learn more about magic. The more you know about magic, the more ways that the coins can be used. Add some simple sleights and watch the tricks spiral out into magic that couldn't be done at all with sleight-of-hand alone.
All in all, these are amazing coins that do great tricks at every skill level and still end with nothing for the audience to find.
