you can cheat at Bobo's!
Well, if you like gimmicks, try the section on them - the dime & penny (a poor man's Scotch & Soda), stack of quarters (which can be very simply done or range into the ohmyghod ranges) is good as well.
Some of the Ross Bertram material is good (Rubdown from the Ross Bertram book being a favorite of mine), Passing the Half Bucks, coins across all are good and range from relatively easy to intermediate levels.
If you want to work at something, the section on sleeving is good. Try Slydini's Automatic Sleeving Method for one. It's a bit of a knack to get, but it KILLS.
Expansion of Texture (coin thru silk) is not difficult and has a lot of other uses and is a GREAT place to start on material that fools non-magicians as well.
