The Mark is a coin trick created John Murray, and manufactured by Sterling Magic. This wonderful effect was first produced and popularized by the legendary Al Cohen.[1]
Tannen's Topic, SPRING-SUMMER 1981

Effect: A signed half-dollar coin disappears, and magically reappears locked inside a key chain that is being held by the spectator, who has held it throughout the performance.

The trick has been reproduced by Paul Richards and Elmwood Magic.
