Sympathetic Coins (originally called Coins-n-Cards) is a coin effect in which four coins are laid at the corners of a square and covered by cards to eventually come together under one card.

It was created by Yank Hoe as a variation on an old parlor trick with corks and hats. He first performed it in America by 1891.[1]

Al Schneider created a modern version called Matrix.
