Catch by Vanishing Inc.
Catch Coin Vanish

"Catch" allows you to perform coin effects that look like real magic. It's that good. Ask yourself this simple question: if you had the power to vanish a coin from your hand, what would it look like? Now keep that mental movie in your mind and watch the trailer...see what we mean? There are no tells, awkward movements, or strange presentations to justify a weird method. A coin is placed on your legitimately empty palm. The fingers close around the coin for a brief moment and when you open your hand the coin is truly gone.

But "Catch" is more than a coin vanish. It's a device with no moving parts, yet once a coin is slipped into it, it has a clever locking system so the coin won't fall out...until you wish to release it. In other words, this device not only vanishes coins, but allows you to reproduce them as well. This makes it ideal for transpositions, changes, and more. You can use borrowed or even signed coins.

  • Use any small coin you like, across multiple currencies
  • No magnets, elastic (or anything else!) attached to the coin
  • Easy to do (but with some killer advanced handlings for the coin guys)
  • Use borrowed pocket change

As well as the specially made gimmick (which is ambidextrous), you also get access to a 35-minute video tutorial during which you will learn which handling to use in which scenario.

Catch trick angles

Questions & Answers

How practical is “Catch”?
Very! In the instructional video, you will learn handlings for all sorts of environments. If you want a vanish that you can perform in walkaround situations, we’ve got you covered. If you want to perform an ultra clean coin through glass, we’ve got you covered too. Or if you are looking for eye-popping visuals that look great on camera (like the first vanish in the trailer), we’ve got you covered there too!

What size coins can I use with “Catch”?
Catch works with small pocket change. The ideal size coins are quarters, 10p pieces or 50c coins. No matter which country you live in, there will be a coin that is suitable. (It’s not designed for large coins like half dollars because that would make the gimmick ineffective.)

What are the angle restrictions?
The angles for “Catch” are very good. They will vary, depending on which method you decide to use, but for the most part, you will easily have 180-270 degree coverage.

Do I need sleeves?
The coolest part of this gimmick is that you can do it with your sleeves rolled up (but you will need to wear something like a watch or wrist strap to hold the gimmick). It’s an unobtrusive gimmick that is ready to go as soon as you need it.

I love this gimmick. It does all the hard work while you take the credit.

  • Ryan asks: Can the catch gimmick be adapted to any watch?

    • 1. Vanishing Inc. Magic responds: It isn't fitted onto a watch, so you're good there.
  • Kim asks: Is this usable with half-dollars and with full-sized dollars? What's the weight limit? I have another disk-shaped prop I want to work with that is roughly coin-sized in diameter, but is nearly 4 times thicker. So I'll need to know the weight limit. Thanks.

    • 1. Vanishing Inc. Magic responds: No — Catch is designed for pocket change. Anything larger or thicker than a quarter won't work.
  • Michael asks: Is this gimmick suitable for quiet environments (i.e. does it make [much] noise)?

    • 1. Vanishing Inc. Magic responds: It isn't noisy at all. In fact, we added an element into the gimmick to ensure that it is quiet.
  • Robert asks: I wear Rolexes and Omega watches only. I do not want to use a gimmick that would risk scratching any part of my luxury watches, including the band and clasp. Is this gimmick safely compatible with luxury watches with stainless steel and/or gold bands and snap closure clasps, (rather than a buckle type that would be found on leather bands)?

    • 1. Vanishing Inc. Magic responds: Nice watches. The gimmick itself fits under the strap of the watch, not on the watch.
  • Brandon asks: How knack is this? Do we have to aim the coin at the device and potentially have it miss it?

    • 1. Vanishing Inc. Magic responds: As with all good tricks, it will take some practice and as with all devices of this nature, if you don't hit the gimmick, the coin will fall on the floor. :)
  • Ed asks: Is it compatible with Apple Watch?

    • 1. Vanishing Inc. Magic responds: It is indeed.
  • Nathan asks: Can it be hidden with a bunch of rubber bands on your wrist? Instead of a watch or wristband

    • 1. Vanishing Inc. Magic responds: We haven't tried it, but are confident that it would work.
  • Mariano asks: Is this a new or updated release, or in any way different from the one that came out in early 2020? Thanks!

    • 1. Vanishing Inc. Magic responds: The video instructions are brand new.
  • Martin asks: I don’t wear a watch or wristband, but i do perform wearing a jacket. Will I be able to perform CATCH under those conditions?

    • 1. Peter answers: You’ll need something to use it for sure.
    • 2. edward alexander answers: Catch: I don't wear a watch. Is this gimmick restricted to watch wearer's?
    • 3. Andreas answers: Read the description: The coolest part of this gimmick is that you can do it with your sleeves rolled up (but you will need to wear something like a watch or wrist strap to hold the gimmick). It’s an unobtrusive gimmick that is ready to go as soon as you need it.

  • Vernon asks: I have very small hands. I’m a dwarf. Would this gimmick work with small children’s hands which are fat and stumpy?

    • 1. Vanishing Inc. Magic responds: Without having seen your hands, I would say, most likely, it should work. Keep in mind, that if you order it, and it does not work in your hands, then we have a very good return policy:
  • Jeremy asks: Is the gimmick dependent on you skin tone? The way a thumb tip is, for example.

    • 1. Jim answers: Nope!
    Post an answer to this question
  • Tom asks: Can the first vanish in the trailer be achieved with this gimmick? It seems a lot 'cleaner' than the other vanishes shown.

    • 1. Vanishing Inc. Magic responds: Everything in the trailer is done using the gimmick. The first vanish is really for video only, but it does absolutely use the gimmick.
  • Rick asks: Can the spectators be looking down at your hands, as they would in real world performances, or do your hands have to be 'straight on' to the spectators (as they are in the demo video)?

    • 1. Vanishing Inc. Magic responds: A simple step or two backwards will allow you to position your audience in the right place, the angles are fantastic - about 270 degrees.
  • David Matkin asks: On the demo there is a transportion from one hand to the other. Are 2 gimmicks needed for this? In other words do I need to buy it twice to do that one effect? Thanks wheelie Dave.

    • 1. Vanishing Inc. Magic responds: Nope! Everything in the trailer is done with one gimmick.
  • Craig asks: So you can't use walking liberty coins?

    • 1. John answers: Nope. Quarter is the largest sized coin
    Post an answer to this question
  • Simon asks: What is the largest Euro coin it will work with?

    • 1. Vanishing Inc. Magic responds: It will work with a 1 Euro and 50c coin.
  • Daniel asks: Can you vanish the coin using this gimmick and then produce it from say 'nest of wallets?' Also can you vanish multiple coins, say if you had three 10p pieces?

    • 1. Vanishing Inc. Magic responds: It's only meant for vanishing or producing one coin. But, yes, you could absolutely use it with the nest of wallets. In fact, it might just be the cleanest way ever to use the nest of wallets. You can show an empty hand before going to grab the wallet in your pocket.
  • Michael asks: How long does it take to reset?

    • 1. Daniel answers: zero seconds

    • 1. Vanishing Inc. Magic responds: Yes.
  • Mark asks: Since I don't see anything about productions...what's involved in getting the coin back? Can it be done "naturally"?

    • 1. Vanishing Inc. Magic responds: Yes, it can be easily retrieved.
  • Glenn asks: How is the durability of the gimmick? I haven't seen any questions or comments regarding this, so I guess it really isn't a concern? Thank you--Glenn

    • 1. Vanishing Inc. Magic responds: Very durable, in my experience.
  • Basmala asks: Can this be done in person “comfortably” with the gimmick hiding in plain sight ? Also would the colour of it show or will it be concealed. And the fact of the size of the strap won’t the coin be viable hence it’s better to use a smaller coin ?

    • 1. Vanishing Inc. Magic responds: Yup. George dems this all day long at conventions, very comfortably doing it inches from people's face.
  • Janes asks: Will this work with Joshua’s Triad coins for the final vanish ???

    • 1. Vanishing Inc. Magic responds: Depends which version you have. The 10p version will fit, the half dollar will not.
  • Janes asks: Will the 50c version of Triad work ??

    • 1. Vanishing Inc. Magic responds: Nope, it works with quarter-sized coins.
  • Peter asks: Will a flat small ring fit?

    • 1. Vanishing Inc. Magic responds: No, it fits quarter-size coins. So, a quarter, a Euro 50c coin or a UK 10p, or smaller.
  • Rob asks: Will this work with a watch that has a band with metal links?

    • 1. Vanishing Inc. Magic responds: Yes.
  • Ryan asks: I am wondering how how large this can take for Canadian coin? Would a toonie be to large? or even a Loonie?

    • 1. Vanishing Inc. Magic responds: A US Quarter.
  • Jeffrey asks: I see you need to wear a watch or wristband. I don't wear either. But I do rubber band magic and usually have about 10/15 rubber bands on my wrist. Would that work as good?

    • 1. Tony answers: I think it will work as well, as long as the band fit your wrist
    • 2. Jaime answers: Probably not with your working rubber bands, but you could definitely adapt something that looks natural with a little extra shopping.

  • Jeffrey asks: I see this is a pre order. When is it coming out?

    • 1. Vanishing Inc. Magic responds: We expect to have more in August
  • Kenneth asks: Is Catch suitable for a metal expanding watch strap which is silver which does not open just slides over the hand or do i need another watch.

    • 1. Jim answers: It should be fine for that, in the same way that a TT works with most hands.
    • 2. Kenneth answers: I bought this gimmick only to find it is black so does not match my silver expanding strap so bought a watch with a black strap. If you do not have a black strap the gimmick stands out and even with a black strap if it is not 3cm wide the gimmick will protrude out as only half the gimmick is hidden as it is 3cm wide. I would recommend a 3cm black watch strap if you plan on using this I myself will not be using this item. I am disappointed. Kenneth

Customer reviews for Catch



This is a genius gimmick that can be used for everyday carry and street magic. I love it!



awesome idea, very practical, Love it...



I have seen the download and really looking forward to using it, to use it with Nest of Wallets would be great!



A very good video, superb explanation, cannot wait to get to grips with this magic trick. The gimmick is so diabolically simple. I can see me using catch in so many situations. Casual, close up and personal using borrowed coins is just what catch has been created for, a great addition to my arsenal of simple clean looking magic effects to baffle my friends.



Have not received it yet but watched the instructions twice. One of the reviews I saw about combining it with nest of wallets is brilliant and will try it out. I can’t wait to use it.



Sometimes you look at these trailers and think this is too good to be true! But this is 'simply' amazing. It's because of its simplicity that its so fooling. I've always wanted to do an ultra clean signed coin to nest of wallets where you show both hands empty and CATCH fits the bill. The download is brilliant and George's passion for this project just shows. His explanations and ideas are top notch and in 35mins packs a lot in. I thought i would be disappointed, but looking forward to playing with this and fooling some people ????



I really do love the thinking here. Such a simple gimmick that produces extremely visual illusions with a bare minimum of motion. My mind is racing with handlings for this gimmick...kudos to the creators and producers of this wonderful gimmick! Well worth the asking price...



Really good instruction video.









I love coin magic and this is a dream effect. A very cool little gimmick that is almost undetectable and angle-safe. Miracles are easily possible. It does take a little practice but it's simple and enjoyable. (What trick worth doing doesn't take practice?) A very reasonable price for an astounding, killer effect. Love it.





This is a great gimmick and does not take long to get it smooth and visual and worth purchasing for a coin routine or just a quick visual opener.




Dr. Kemeny

EXCELLENT demonstration and explanation! Very informative and clear methods. Calm and serious guy with helpful tips. Would recommend this "CATCH" gimmick to all levels of magicians. It really is quite easy to master and each of the effects are truly magically amazing. What a simple but devastating little item. And it totally HIDES in plain sight! Great job!



Beautiful effect!



Great gimmick! Construction (a month in/heavy use) is durable & the engineering of the mechanism is superb. I watched the download before it arrived and thought “this is going to be knacky as #@&$… really is not. You will find your “sweet spot” quickly. The instructional video is superb! George is an engaging and & thoughtful teacher. As others have said, It would be great to design this for a larger coin; understanding everyone’s body structure is different and may not be practical for all, but I so want to combine this with Greg Wilson’s Split Focus! Great and practical gimmick! Highly recommended, even if you’re not a coin person!



Amazing gimmick! Genius idea for a trick!


Joseph M

An addition to my review below: Everything I said was true but keep your gimmick in its case or somewhere safe as it is very delicate and can easily break if carried in a pocket.

Brilliant solution. So much hype, this is practical and ingenious. I would suggest a sort of thin "lining" to eliminate you know what, but wow! It looks like magic should and is fun to just play with.



the tutorial was very good, cant wait to get the gimmick so I can start....



Excellent Gimmick, allows you to do some amazing magic.


Dexter Yin

Love the gimmick! Simple to perform!



Ingenious tool. Can be used is so many situations. Fun to use as well.



I think this is a contender for trick of the year but it takes a lot of practice.


Einar Aron

This trick blew my mind, both on the video and while practising. It looks great on video but I'm having trouble with performing it amongst people. The explanation is great and well taught and the gimmick is well made as well. This is your money's worth!





So, I just-just ordered this through a Black Friday deal, and I'm glad I did! I've had my eye on CATCH since I began perusing, wish listing, and buying. I can't speak for the gimmick just yet, but I think the tutorial is about as thorough as one can get (It would've been much cooler to see two of these gimmicks in action instead of just suggesting, though!)
I can see I'm going to have a lot of fun with this; if I can master it with relative ease, I may pick up a second just to see what I can come up with.



This is brilliant and well worth the money especially while discounted for Black Friday. Within less than 5 minute I nailed 3 of the tricks on the tutorial video that I had watched before the physical gimmick had been delivered. Very subtle equipment, very simple process and an outstanding response. Can’t recommend enough



So, when I first saw the trailer I thought I had a basic idea of what this was. When I finally opened it and started practicing, I realized it was pretty much exactly what I had imagined... but what I didn't imagine was how amazingly easy and smooth it is. I thought, for sure, it was going to be super knacky, but after a couple minutes, I was hitting it every time. I love this thing!



Fantastic gimmick. It will make many effects like coin in the bottle, coin in the glass.. look much more cleaner and easier to do.. great gimmick many applications.



I may be wrong, but i think there was no mention of a watch strap when i bought it. It should have been. Just got it today, no chance to try it yet. Seems good for strangers, strange for family or friends who know you don't wear watches. Probably just me, but i think the watch strap should have been mentioned somewhere



A one handed coin vanish is a wonderful thing to have in your arsenal. Getting used to the angles to hide and produce takes very little time.
A one handed coin vanish is a wonderful thing to have in your arsenal. Getting used to the angles to hide and produce takes very little time.
My best advice to buyers as well as the manufacturer, is to smooth out the bottom like the top so double sided tape can be used. That way, even a watch is not necessary. I prefer it that way, much more impressive.



When you’ll first receive the gimmick you will be tempted to dismiss it. It requires a little bit of practice and you’ll not be able to make it work right away.

In the beginning I had many doubts. The gimmick initially failed to me too many times and I was scared that it was too much exposed.

After trying it in real life situations I must admit it is really great. It’s invisible from the front, and many people didn’t catch it (pun intended) even from the sides. I was astonished how well it fooled people, and how they were really floored.

Invest time to follow the tutorial, practice enough to be confident on the moves required and you’ll have an incredible weapon at your disposal.

Just be aware that you’ll need a watch or a bracelet, possibly (and better) with a black strap.



I like it. I use it. It does what it says it will do. I'm not a big gimmick guy, BUT, that being said, when it works ... it works. And for me, this is an amazing helper. It's not for every vanish every time, but if you do Nest of Wallets or something similar, it adds a whole new dimension. I say buy it. It's the TT of coins.



Yes, this will require practice.

Yes, it's not completely silent. But some simple modifications (e.g. with black painter's tape in key areas) can help. But as long as your performance context isn't totally silent, you're probably fine. I think you'd want some background noise to be totally free and clear.

Did I mention you'll actually have to practice to do this well? If you're not familiar with the nature of the required move(s) it's going to feel like a weird, low-percentage move, but in the long run this kind of move can be very reliable. If you practice.

I think this is a very good item (and download!) for the price.

By the way, this'll take some practice!



It certainly looks great in the videos and hopefully I can get some practice with it. It will take a bit of time to get it working smoothly enough to look good, just like any other great effect. The gimmick is light, and if you watch your handling, very discreet.

The instructional video is excellent and offers many tips and pieces of advice from someone who has obviously been through the experience.

Overall I find this to be totally worth it and I look forward to practicing because once you have it, it looks amazing.

Thanks VI for offering this effect and keep them coming! You offer a truly impressive stable of products at very competitive pricea.



The gimmick is very well made and works as shown. However, be aware that the most interesting visual on the trailer requires some additional set up.

It is also NOT a gimmick that you can ring in or out needs to be set in place out of sight and stay there. Not a problem as it is designed to do that and does not get in the way, but if you are going to do many tricks in a row other than coins, you just need to think that through.

I am enjoying working with it, and have found that for me the type of watch band and fit of the band (how tight and location on your wrist) make a world of difference in the accuracy of the move and how it looks. I have several watches and 2 of them are ideal for this gimmick.



It's an excellent edition to your regular coin vanishes/productions, because you can end with your hands absolutely clean. Catch works fine with chips/tokes as well.
You've got to put some effort in learning the handling ofcourse. Durabilty seems good.
Limitations are the smaller coin sizes and the fact that it rattles when loaded.
All in all a pretty neat gimmick for coin magicians.



A great device that fits perfectly with a smart watch strap, it even fits in with my smoke watch pro. Just wish Catch was a little wider to accommodate larger coins. Superb tutorial and handing's from George. After some practice you'll find that sweet spot.



High quality gimmick. Should last a lifetime. The video instructions are excellent and the teacher does a fantastic job communicating the moves for both vanish and production.

My only disappointment is one that's probably anticipated by the creator: the vanish that got all of our attention in the trailer is one he calls the "Flicker Vanish" in which the coin vanishes with no movement at all other than to close and open the hand.

This is misleading. This "flicker vanish" requires the addition of another additional gimmick (used with the Catch gimmick) and it's a gimmick that many magicians detest using or have trouble using. It's also not mentioned in the trailer that this is apparently considered a vanish that's for "video use only" (as indicated in one of the questions answered above).

In summary, it's an excellent gimmick that has a multitude of uses for vanishes, productions, switches, etc. My only disappointment was to discover that 1/3 of the vanishes displayed in the trailer are recommended for "video only" and require the use of an undisclosed, additional gimmick.



Pretty nice



Ok, I like idea behind overall But!. It is actually pretty noisy be aware of it, you can go around with it I guess. One important thing, really, really be careful how do you position your hands because spectators going to see it very easy!



Great gimmick but not idea if you have thick hands or wrists. My hands are thick and the bases of my thumbs are big and so far I can’t pull off the “move”. Not the gimmicks fault but maybe with practice and moving it I’ll figure it out somehow.



Struggling to understand how this gets so many 5 star reviews. It works exactly how you thought it didn't when you watched the video.

Bought this as I expect many will in the hope of the final clean end of routine vanish. It just does not live up to the video. I say again it is the exactly what you thought it wasn't when you fell for the trailer.

Another straight to the draw gimmick. You would be better off saving the money and practising your coin palms and final wash clean. Another Kings new clothes of magical tat.



The gimmic was genius but I give it a below standard only because I don't wear a watch which is the only downside as for if you do wear a watch then this is a must have, Great product to throw into your coin stuff even though you have to use a quarter or smaller but who knows maybe if it sells good the creator will make one for bigger coins. Ya gotta get one.



The first item I received was broken, and labelled as "Marcus Eddie - Catch", which I'm presuming was old stock. Contacted support and quickly received a response (in minutes) saying a replacement would be sent, which arrived a week or so later.

The device is quite large comparative to the thing you're "hiding" it in, and it talks, so I don't think it's suitable for anything other than video - which even then, you could do 'the move' without the device entirely, albeit you wouldn't be able to bring it back. I also found that it can pinch the skin, which provides an extra barrier to effective use.

I think the price is reasonable for what is provided, and I could see some people getting use out of this - however I think this is much more a video/instragram trick than a real world practical effect.



I was thrilled to be receiving this in the mail, as I love knacky coin sleights and I'm always willing to put in the effort. But I can tell this is not something that can be performed with any degree of consistency which makes it pretty much unusable. 10 out of 10 for what this could be in theory. 2/10 for real world practicality which unfortunately is everything. I've never returned a magic item in my life as I love supporting the community, even when I buy a stinker. But this simply doesn't work. I have no choice but to return it to Vanishing Inc. The most charitable I can be is to say perhaps it's an anatomical thing and the shape of my wrists just don't allow for this to work well.



After receiving Catch and watching the instructional download.
After examining the gimmick, at first I thought this was pretty cool
But after playing with it I decided this is not for me. It’s very difficult to maneuver your hand to move the coin into the gimmick located under your watch band without being noticed and visible to the spectator.
It’s a lot easier to use a retention vanish with no gimmick! And more convincing as no bulky gimmick visible under your watch band. Not for me !
