I've been playing around with this to some degree. It's a good routine, particularly useful in "impromptu" situations, as it starts with normal coins, but quickly progresses to obvious preparation by the magician. The problem is, for impromptu situations, I probably won't be wearing a jacket (necessary for some of the ditches) - not to say the routine can't be tweeked to accommadate the lack of a jacket. I like the idea of the primary sleight in this routine. It seems practical and efficient. It's taking some time, however, to make it look natural . . . an investment of serious practice time may be necessary.
