hi i would say im very new to coin magic but not inexperienced i have in the trenches and on the spot are my only dvd's with coins in them.

I am looking for a dvd with lots of material and need help choosing.

Some things i have in mind were-

deffinitely - bobo modern coin magic
was thinking about - sankey revolutionary coin magic

I don't really want Noblezadas dvd's because i feel i know all those sleights and im also not looking at ammars intro.

PS: does anybody know what copper silver gimmick paul green uses in his dvd?

I really like the David DVDs---Stone and Roth. I also have a copy of Roth's Expert Coin Magic book. His book and DVD worked pretty well together...at least for me.

If you want a good comparison, go to http://www.coinvanish.com/ and click on the "reviews" tab. Click on the videos by Roth, Ammar or Stone and then scroll to the top for a good side by side comparison of the videos and the tricks/sleights taught in each.

It is a 2 copper 1 silver gimmick. I thought you had the dvd, he explains that.

Umm, Ammar's easy to master money miracles vol. 1 is really good. I won it in the weekly magic contest at my camp :-) Along with gerry Griffin's Lucky sevens vol. 2, which was pretty bad really.


Ammars money video is really good, i reccomend you buy Vol. 1 anyway. Its the only one I have. I haven't used any of the material yet, but i haven't looked at the vid for awhile. Then again, i don't do much coin magic other than a few vanishes. But for a coin magician like you, its perfect. The routines are fairly easy as well, and the explanations are clear.

To decide what to buy, I highly recommend going to www.coinvanish.com and checking out all the reviews there. Read the one about Roth's DVDs, Stone's DVDs, and Ammar's DVD.

I own and LOVE both of david stone's coin magic dvd's. I highly recomend them. Since you don't have a lot of experience with coins I'd say get David Stone's coin magic volume one and master it then go from there. David Roth's dvd's are great too but I prefer stone's, There is more material and he is a great teacher.

Michael Ammar's dvd is great. He's a very good teacher of magic. David Stone's dvd is good too. Does a really good job of explaining things as well. These are both suitable for starting out. Rachel. :D
