Cylinder and Coins was created by John Ramsay, and published in 1948 by Victor Farelli in the manuscript John Ramsay's Cylinder and Coins. Later, the routine was republished in Andrew Galloway's book The Ramsay Classics (1977), and even later, the full routine together with the original Ramsay footage was published in the Genii 2008 November issue.

John Ramsay's effect was inspired by the Stack of Pence, but instead of being a simple penetration, Cylinder and Coins is a longer transposition routine, where a number of coins disappear from the hands, and appears inside a small cylinder on the table. The routine is by many considered to be a lesson in misdirection.
