False Messiah Vanish

Sale price$5.00
A coin is pushed from the fingertips of one hand into the palm of the other. The fist is closed and the back of the hand rubbed. Immediately both hands can be shown empty - the coin has vanished.

The False Messiah vanish is a kind of homage to Jay Sankey's 'Messiah Vanish' - however it contains a twist that allows the hands to be shown clean after the coin vanishes. This is a simple, pleasing effect that will turn any card man to coins.

If you're not a coin trick type of person, take the time to download this - free - and see if Justin Miller can't change your mind.

Simple and Easy to Add to Any Coin Routine

I already do Jay Sankey's Messiah vanish and this adds a dash of variety that ends clean. In fact I often do the False Messiah first to set up expectations and then break them with the real Messiah vanish. I also found this vanish can segway into balance palm if you'd like for a production. What you see here is what you get, a very casual vanish with some humor. What you do with it is up to you.

Quick and easy to learn.

Should be considered a standard vanish/sleight in all magician's repertoire.

It's free so why not pick it up and see if you can learn anything new from it. Personally, I am not a fan of this. But it's free so I won't complain as much haha.

Not a fan of this one. The method is good, but the handeling is just awkward on it. There are other versions similar (Which he does mention). However, the other versions cost money and they are giving BC members this one at no cost! Thanks E


I will be honest, I don't really like it and I wouldn't recommend it, the move gets you in a weird finger position that you would normally wouldn't do. It is really cheap so you are not feeling like you wasted your money but it's not something that you can use in a real life scenario
