I was fortunate enough to be gifted this wonderful little package from Erik when he and I met
several months ago, and I immediately went home and watched the tutorial. If you are a working
magician that specializes in close-up performance (i.e. bar work, table-hopping, strolling, etc.)
you would be smart to add this to your arsenal. Yes, there are MANY effects on the market, but VERY
FEW of them have the versatility and impact that Erik's "Ultimate Lucky Coin" does, and with such
little effort. The sleight-of-hand required to make the gimmick work is minimal, but the reactions
are VERY strong. Erik's creation is a winner and I'm proud to own it - now you can too.

You get two very well-made gimmicks that will last a very long time and allow you to perform three
versions of this effect. Also, as delivered, it allows you to repeat the effect with two different
outcomes, for example at adjacent tables at a restaurant. That kind of part is a minor annoyance and
I wish the card revealed were more different between the two versions. However, Erik provides sound
instruction on modifying the gimmicks you have or making a version of your own where the outcomes
can be more different.
Beyond the gimmicks and effects, Erik provides excellent
instructions for EVERY aspect of every version. He does this in a way that is both clear and
interesting. There is one move that shows up in a lot of effects and some people may be
uncomfortable trying. I won’t name it because that would be revealing part of the method. However,
his instruction on this, as with everything else in the video, is as outstanding. Andl, much like
Paul Green's "The Odds Are With Me" provides the world's best place to practice a classic force
(actually two of them), each of the Lucky Coin routines provide a spot where you can do this move
that is so well covered there is no way to get burned.
Erik even spends some time
explaining something that I’ve known about for the past 30+ years and have never seen explained.
While I can’t say any of that part was new, it was certainly never laid out in as clear a fashion.
Even if you wind up not performing any version of this, though you probably will, you will
walk away a better performer for having watched his instruction.

I like this effect and I think it will get great reactions when I go out and perform it but, my only
problem is the price. For $40?? Come on, maybe $25-30. Definitely not $40 though. Still a good
trick I will use, just wish the price was lower.

Really pleased with this effect. There's a bit of sleight work, but nothing too challenging.
Totally worth keeping in your pocket.

The Ultra Lucky Coin is a very cool trick to do.
It is not hard to learn and a lot of fun to
The instructions and teaching is great.
It will take a bit of practice to be smooth
the sleight of hand is not too hard to master.
My only disappointment is the price is
a little expensive.
The secret is what I fill is what is you are paying
for with this

Erik has taken a throwaway gag and turned it into some fun magic that I will always have with me.
Great fun when you are out with friends but would also work tableside. I have had a lot of fun with
this and well worth the price. The instructions are great and easy to follow.

I love the concept and the chip is quality but the gimmick itself is a little flimsy and sits
elevated and occasionally offset revealing a lip. I’m hoping this isn’t too noticeable but I
haven’t tested it yet. It’s a little frustrating because all they needed to do was use the inverse
color scheme on the chip to hide the issue. Then the area in question would be black on black
instead on yellow on yellow.
Otherwise this is an awesome trick well worth the price. I would
prefer I little sturdier and stronger holding gimmick.

First things first, Erik is a buddy. I swear to you, though, he has not asked me to write a review.
Also, if I didn't like Lucky Coin, I just wouldn't have written a review (you know, so it wouldn't
be awkward between us). I don't do a lot of reviews, mostly because I'm lazy, but this absolutely
deserves a review. So here goes...
What a great trick! I've performed this once. It was for
my wife. She's seen a lot of magic and to be honest, she's a bit numb to it. Her reaction was,
"WOW!", but not like a sarcastic "wow" like I'm used to hearing from her when I perform my most
recent miracle. She was REALLY impressed. She even picked the coin up and studied it for a few
seconds. As she walked away she said, "That was so good, it makes me wanna make out with you". Not
really, but that would have been awesome.
Spend the $40 and add this to your walk around
right away. You will not be disappointed.

I am very pleased with this item. It is beautifully made and I can tell a lot of thought went into
sourcing the material necessary to manufacturing this effect. The video instruction is first rate
and I think Eric should do a lecture. He doesn't miss a beat! He's that good. This is a worker and I
highly recommend it.

It's a worker! The magnetic chip gives a moment of misdirection which makes the t** ch****
completely undetectable by the spectator allowing for the kicker to play even stronger! Great
workmanship. However, I wished the chip could be made available with other reveals other than the
