Copentro (or Visible Coins in Glass) is a marketed trick where coins are made to vanish and then reappear within an upside-down glass on a display stand.
The Gen (c. 1946)

A version was invented and circulated privately among magicians around 1937 by British magician Jack Hughes as "Coins in Glass".

After a version by Bob Kline was marketed in the United States in 1947 as "Copenetro", Hughes would release three different versions of his original routine in England including "Visible Coins in Glass".[1]
