What coins do you primarily use for your coin tricks? And why?

I apologize in advance for those not in the states... please tell us what you use too!

I typically use half dollars, because of the way they fit in my hands... and they have a nice ridge that makes it easy to grip in some of the palmings.

I use 1964 Kennedy halves and 1942 Walking liberty halves. I use the Kennedy halves the most. You can pick them up for about $1.50 to $2 a piece at most coin shops.

I like halfs. Quarters have the advantage of being more ordinary - looking less like "props" - but there's something aesthetically pleasing to me about halfs. I like their feel and weight, and they are nice and visible. My C/S routine with a half and an (old) English penny is about my favorite trick to do, so that's another reason I have been sticking with halfs.
