For those not familiar with the effect, a square made up of 40 pennies is made on the close-up mat. A spectator adds one more coin to one of the rows, yet with a few simple movements of pennies, the added one disappears into the square of other pennies, still leaving 40 pennies. It is done again, and still the added coin disappears into the 40-penny square. This can be done 5 or 6 times, each time getting more and more baffling ("Where does the added coin disappear to?!")
