Ghost – Standard Package

A Revolution In Coin Magic – Unique To The Alchemy Tree

Collin introduces this TOTALLY IMPROMPTU principle for creating an unprecedented level of fairness and openness in coin magic. The Ghost Principal enables you to perform a whole host of amazing sleights; even in short sleeves!

It looks like real magic! Close your hand for just a moment … and the coin is gone. The mechanics of the move are fully examined, and the extra tips will on make the move invisible.


SkyFall – An invisible coin falls from nowhere and materialises the very moment that it hits your waiting hand.

Closed Fist Production – An empty hand closes and immediately reopens to display a coin. Three variations are taught.

Basic Vanishes

This section takes established sleights and reimagines them, with moves such as …

Ghost of the Shell – An impromptu vanish of one of several coins, which is as clean as using a gimmick … but it can be performed with BORROWED coins.

The Ghost Drop – A French Drop where BOTH hands finish empty.

The Ghost Pop – Geoff Latta’s French Pop is exploded wide open as you finish by revealing an empty hand.

The Ghost Spider Vanish – A real magician-fooler: this super-clean vanish blends elements of The Spider-Grip Vanish, The Retention Vanish and The Ghost Principal, to create a magical mind-masher.

Extra Tips

The Ghost Move can elevate your coin magic to a new plane. Collin explains how.

Develop multiple-coin routines which start AND end with clearly empty hands. No more fumbling loads or clumsy ditches: this is as clean as it comes.

Remove peculiar “hand-washing” and over-proving sequences from your magic.

And finally, clean up easily when a spectator says, “It’s in the other hand.”


Learn two super clean switches which you’ll immediately want to add to your spellbound routines. Plus, switching in gimmicked coins, has never been cleaner.

The Advanced Handling

Three BRAND NEW vanishes will allow you to vanish a coin in short sleeves and immediately show both sides of the hand empty.

Utility Passes

The ghost principal can create super-clean utility passes. Combine these with the other material on this project to revolutionise your coin routines

Ghost – Deluxe Package

103 minutes of tuition including Schmetterling” and bonus moves

Collin has spent the last seven years studying and dissecting 3-fly routines from all over the world. Schmetterling is his favourite ungimmicked version and aims to iron out the weak points of other 3-Fly routines.

It uses the Ghost technique to stunning effect. You can view a full performance of Schmetterling here.

Everything on this project is taught in the usual, detailed Alchemy Tree Format, so you’ll have everything you need to start perfecting this amazing technique.


By purchasing the deluxe version you’ll be among the first to benefit from our brand-new stand-alone DOWNS PALM and FRENCH DROP tutorials, which are not yet available anywhere else.

Schmetterling is Collin’s unique, ungimmicked 3 Fly Routine and is available with The Ghost Deluxe Package.

JW Grip

An Instant Vanish And Appearance Of A Coin

The JW Grip is The Alchemy Tree’s first coin tutorial and it’s a lightning fast vanish and production from an open hand.  It looks stunning!

The good news is that it’s NOT a knuckle-buster and it’s achievable in no time … even by a beginner. It’s the perfect opening to any coin routine and your audience will credit you with far more skill than it takes to learn the move.

As with all Alchemy Tree Tutorials, the JW Grip is taught in depth and with total precision.  There’s no unnecessary waffle, just the important points that make this sleight look like real magic.

Look out for more coin sleights and routines coming shortly.
