2ps or 10ps. However, i find 2ps are not as good because they are a bit heavier than 10ps so if you are switing from one to the other it gets confusing because you don't recognize the weight.

I use the old out-of-circulation english penny.... the big copper ones... they are exactly the same size as a US half Dollar.

i have got a edited of lot of those, my grandad gave me quite a lot of coins, i find using the nickle shell and a euro 10 cent coin works well, because people dont worry about the currency they say it was silver now gold

i like ten p's 5p's and 1p's

I use 50p's or 2p's but in my opinion the heavier the better. I also got two japanise coins from the Michael P Lair magic stand at the blackpool magic convention.

Two-pound coins. Five-pound coins are really best but they're rare :(

isnt there an advert on tv for a five pound coin for only five pounds, free postage and packaging and its got 2005 on it, and it can be spent (i think)

maybe you could produce it as a bizzare production ?
