    Will this sleight work?

    I have an idea for a trick but wanted to check before spending hours mastering it: 1. Show palm of hand is empty while pinching coin between fingers behind it. 2. Flip hand over to show back of hand is empty while opening fingers to allow coin to roll into palm. 3. Reveal coin.
