Effect: Dynamo waves his hand over a coin, turning it into an entirely different coin.
Explanation: Most people are familiar with the scratchy material used on scratch and win tickets, but most people would never suspect it could be used for an effect like this. While the specific scratch material is usually designed to strongly adhere to prevent people from cheating, it the case of this trick, the slightly bump will cause it to disintegrate.
The tricky has been filmed very carefully to make it appear Dynamo never even touches the coin, but that's mostly due to the camera angle. If you watch carefully, he gives the coin a very quick bump, causing the material to disengage.
