That was cool.
The only thing that makes me wonder is the factthat he has to hide the hand going through the glass with his other hand as it "enters".
He does this when he pulls it out too. If it was that genuine, why not let us see everything?
Cool trick though.

It was a good trick, but unfortunately a few hiccups reveal a lot of how it works. The main mistake was between 6:15 and 6:23 where you can see the hand of the man who is sitting behind him move the glass of the table round quickly. At that time you can see where the movement of the glass slightly moves his hand and and the shadow of the hole pass under the hand too. Still, was a good illusion, but they should have maybe watched it over a bit more closely to iron out the hiccups

The only part that gets me is the finish (unless the was a camera edit) is that the left hand and arm has not slid the whole back into place when his right hand is still visibly inside the whole. The left hand is removed, without any sliding, and the right drops the coins onto the table. A camera close up even shows smudges on the glass in the area of the hands.
Obviously there is some trickery and the camera shot level withe the table almost looks like there is no glass on the table and that the arm positions are just a pantomime of being on a glass surface. But the finish is the best part of the trick.

I don't know if it's that complicated...but that could potentially explain it as well I guess.
