Junior Mint

By Jonathan Friedman - Thursday, July 25, 2019


A coin is borrowed in order to make a counterfeit duplicate of it. The coin is covered with a piece of paper. A crayon is rubbed over it, creating a very crude impression. It just needs to be “minted”. The paper is balanced in the tip of the first finger. It is lit on fire and burns away, turning into a real-world duplicate of the coin. Highly visual! Highly commercial! Highly flammable!


In this series of posts, Jonathan Friedman shares performances of his effects from his book: The Magic of Jonathan Friedman: The Musical.
