A powerful new method that opens up whole new world of possibilities for a classic of magic.
Three borrowed coins are locked in transparent plastic holders, dropped into three ungimmicked envelopes and mixed by the spectator. You can't see the coins. You can't feel the coins. But you instantly know what they are!
"Klipto" is an amazing 3 coin divination that can be performed blindfolded. You can use ANY CURRENCY. As it also resets instantly, it is perfect for walkaround close-up magic.

This effect is based Larry Becker's 'Kliptomanic'—a mentalism classic. Larry's method could only use certain coins and they all had to be the same. The only difference was the dates, something that's difficult for a spectator to see and remember. Liam Montier's "Klipto" uses an entirely new method.
Now, three different (and totally regular) coins are sealed into three transparent coin cases, (so that the magician can't feel the size or shape of the coins) and then dropped into three genuine (and unmarked) envelopes, which are sealed and mixed entirely by the spectator, and left face down in a pile.
Immediately, the magician picks up each envelope and instantly scribbles a number on it - the value of the coin he believes to be inside the envelope.
Note that there is NO hesitation. Each envelope is picked and INSTANTLY written on.
Then, with clean and bare hands, each envelope is ripped open to reveal that the magician knew exactly where each coin ended up!
