Cylinder and Coins
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.
