Hi. I am looking for a good coin dvd.

ive been working with cards for some years, i i tought that it would be nice to get a coin dvd that is a little hard to master the tricks on it..

Of course i have done coin magic too, but i want a DVd that is filled with sleights and good stuff. I saw that jay sankey had this 2.0 dvd about coins, and i think i gonna buy that one.. any other nice DVDs? :)

Pick up Michael Ammar's The Complete Introduction to Coin Magic.
A far more experienced magician than Jay Noblezada.

I think you mean Jay Sankey, unless you changed the subject. I have In the Beginning There Were Coind, snf Ammar's DVD, and I personally like both. Go with either or both, and pick up Bobo's Modern Coin Magic(book). You won't regret it.

No wait. :P I misread that original post I thought you were a beginner. If you watched Noblezada's DVD which looks like it covers pretty much the basics and Bobo's book, look into some David Roth's work. He's one of the best in coin magic. Buy his Expert Coin Magic DVD.

I agree with other posts on David Roth and Michael Ammar. I have their DVDs. They are excellent.

Another magician that has DVDs on coin magic that definitely worth mentioning is David Stone. Basic Coin Magic 1.

Some material overlap Roth & Ammar.. but Stone has some nice routine such as Coin Across using Han Ping Chen, that is not in other DVDs.

Hmmm.. I have Jay Sankey Revolution Coin Magic DVD #1. It is not for beginners and doesn't teach you basic sleights.. Which one are you getting? Version #2 of rev coin magic? I don't know much about that one....

I would get Ammar, Roth and/ Or Stone.

Please go to this link. It will help you out a lot!!

The safest choice in my opinion is Michael Ammar's Intro to Coin Magic.

It covers all the neccasary sleight of hand for coins, and a couple of tricks for each sleight.

Also, his DVD has a number of great effects such as the classic Coins Across, Coin to Key change, Copper Coin/American Half dollar transpo.
It's all there.

If you want a good foundation on your basic sleight of hand moves for coins, I'd go with David Roth's Expert Coin Magic Vol. 1.

Roth has a lot of good tips on each sleight, but this DVD doesn't have as much tricks, and the tricks your learn are already in Michael Ammar's DVD. His tricks are also more generally aimed for a table setting.

In the beginning is alright... Not bad, good for just "streeting"

That's my opinion anywys...

After basic moves and what not, I'd definately get Sankey's REvo.... Coins. Definately worth it. Ingenius stuff.

I have both of David Stone's dvd's on coins and all three of David Roth's dvd's on coins. I highly recommend both. Here is my equation for a strong foundation in coin magic. Start with Expert coin magic made easy volume one along with Bobo's book. once you've got that material down get Expert Coin Magic Made easy volume two along with David Stone's "Basic coin magic" volume one. Once you've mastered that pick up Expert coin magic volume three along with David Stone's "Coin Magic" Volume two.

After that you will have a very strong foundation in coin magic. You can then move on to stuff like Revolutionary coin magic by jay sankey (which is also great) and if you are looking for really advanced stuff you can get into stuff by Curtis Kam, Reed Mclintock, Shoot Ogawa, Apollo Robbins, Kainoa Harbottle Gary Kurtz and Roth's more advanced stuff etc.

Hope I could help.
