Washout

A polished brass washer is placed on top of a £2 coin. The £2 coin can be seen at all times through the hole in the brass washer. The performer patters about alchemists, people who tried to turn base metal into gold. To this end, a spectator is asked to blow on the £2 coin through the hole in the washer.

Instantly, the £2 coin undergoes a magical transformation, turning into an ordinary 1p coin: a truly great visual change! As the performer then goes on to explain, every attempt at alchemy throughout history has ended the same way: a WASHOUT!
