- Breast Pocket Coin Vanish – a great utility vanish that can be used on its own or as an addition to an existing routine.
- Coin Through Ring 1 and 2 – a coin is twisted into the middle of a handkerchief and a borrowed ring is theaded on, which is then magically removed. Two versions are taught with one suitable for performance in even a large venue!
- Tactile Coin Through Silk – a spectator pushes a coin straight through an ordinary handkerchief. A subtle and ingenious method makes this an incredibly clean and powerful piece of magic.
- Novel Coin Vanish – a coin, fairly folded into a handkerchief, instantly vanishes when the handkerchief is opened out. Two methods are taught with the second happening while the spectator holds the handkerchief!
- Buckley Bag Appearance – a coin visibly appears inside a folded handkerchief that was openly displayed.
- Rip-O – a coin, twisted into the middle of a handkerchief, is visibly cut out with a knife, yet the handkerchief emerges unharmed.

- Copper/Silver Extraction – Two coins – one copper, one silver – are twisted into a handkerchief. The copper coin is magically extracted through the hank and then replaced the same way. The silver coin is also extracted through the hank and then everything is examined. A classic remodeled with the Roth touch!
