You borrow a quarter from a spectator (you can even have them initial it!) and, while completely surrounded, you show all sides of the coin and display both hands void of any objects, besides the borrowed coin. Now, without concealing the coin and while keeping it in plain view, you proceed to create an optical illusion as you say, "Folks this looks absolutely convincing when done properly. As I concentrate on your coin and begin to pull on it, what do your eyes see?" Suddenly, and to everyone's shock and amazement, the coin appears to melt and stretch between your fingers as if you had hands of fire! As you stretch the borrowed coin like taffy you say, "It's an incredible optical illusion that is very believable simply because...it's true!" Your fingers come away from the coin to reveal that it has been stretched to three times its original length, while in plain view of the audience the entire time! As if this is not incredible enough, you take it one step further. You place the coin in the outreached hand of a spectator, or on your own palm, and your thumb on top of the coin, as you explain your ability to affect metal with your mind. "Folks, absolutely no strength is used during my demonstration, I only use the power of my mind and I'll prove it!" With some light pressure from your thumb and a little concentration, you achieve the impossible. As your thumb slowly lifts off the stretched coin an amazing impression is seen burned into the metal – your very own thump print! You handout the badly malformed and stretched out coin to your spectators for examination, and, to their bewilderment, the embedded fingerprint cannot be removed and is permanently pressed into the steel!

I OK guys, I recently got this and here's my review. Overall I'm very pleased with this. The quality of the gaff if beautiful and the DVD is very well made and entertaining. The way the coin works is amazing and the fingerprint looks very real. The method of stretching a 'borrowed' coin is very effective and I haven't had any one come close to figuring this out. They truly believe that I have stretched out their coin, and them, while it was still hot, I pressed my them into it.
My only concern initially was how to get the coin back, but what I thought would be a weakness turned out to be one of the best aspects of the entire trick. Alex shows you a method of how to retrieve the coin in a way that is not suspicious. In fact, it's down right hysterical and magical at the same time, and people walk away never asking for the coin.
So if you are a coin guy, or you perform medal bending routines with forks and stuff, then I highly recommend this. I never did the fork bending routines, but Alex does cover that and performs that on the street before going into the coin melting and finger print routine.
