No not stealing someones coin collection ha haa haaa (*-*) but i clearly remember back in like fourth grade this kid came into school doing this apparent magic trick for everyone in the classroom and we were all stunned to see his seemingly magical abilities performed right before our amazed young eyes and blown away youthful minds (*=*)

Quote: Coin snatching, often nicknamed the Chinese elbow trick, consists of a simple illusion in which a coin is placed on the elbow, the hand of the same arm is placed on the arm's shoulder, and the hand is swungs forwards to catch the coin. The trick can also be performed with a stack of coins. If performed correctly with a stack of coins, it will appear that they have teleported with a bang.

The current world record for coin snatching is 328 coins, in accordance with British rules which specify that coins must be 10g or heavier (ruling out US quarters), that they may be arranged in multiple stacks, and that the catcher is allowed to drop some of the coins, counting only those that remain in the hand. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coin_snatching

I'm pretty good at that. I would attempt the world record, but I don't think I have that many coins at hand.
