Chinese Nesting Boxes Contain Missing Coin
A coin is marked for future recognition, and placed under a cover.
The magician reaches under a hankerchief and withdraws a red Chinese pill-box.
Inside this pill-box is another, and another, and another.
When the last pill-box is opened, the marked coin is found inside.
The coin is, of course, missing from under the cover where it was originally placed. All items can be minutely examined by the audience.
