The video teaches the trick well, and some great, basic sleights. As far as the actual trick goes, I
will never use it. Its not great.
If you do decide you like it, youll need to buy more of
these coin holders, which go for about $9 per 100 on ebay....not too shabby for a souvenir to give
I do like the idea of a borrowed, signed coin....but even after getting my hands on this,
practicing and setting up as described in the video, its still a little iffy and there is a good
chance that you could be "found out".
If youre a working pro, and work in areas where you are
surrounded or can be bumped into, this effect is NOT for you. If you do hobby magic for your friends
at house parties, by all means, pick this up....as for me, i dont like it.
(this review is an
honest review, and has no ill meaning toward the creator of the effect or anyone involved...i simply
mean that this type of effect is simply not for me)

I love this trick its easy to carry around really good for walk around magic. Cameron teaches it
very well i recommend this trick to anyone.

This is a clever idea but probably something you won't use often.
If a spectator signs the coin
you can't hand them the holder once the coin is inside... you have to tear it open first. If you
sign it then you can hand it out sealed inside.
This is the kind of trick you expect on a DVD
full of lots of different tricks and ideas to play with. It is not good enough to be a stand alone
For the same money you can buy much better effects. Add five or ten bucks and you
could buy a penguin live lecture or another DVD which would contain lots of effects all of which
would be better then this.
All in all, it is fun to play with, but there are so many better
effects you could buy with that amount of money. This should have been put on a book or dvd with at
least 7 or 8 other effects.

I have had the pleasure of performing this a handful of times at some parties recently. I am using
the version that allows me to give away the sealed coin holder at the end of the trick. I am
getting some really interesting reactions. I am enjoying watching people respond to this. I don't
think this is for everyone, but the version I am using is easy to do and I think it will stay in my
act for a long time.
This trick is pretty good. It's not difficult, but the sudden appearance of the coin inside the coin
holder is very visual! I only have Cornered/Exposure and Solitary by Cameron Francis, but I'm
quickly becoming a fan of his work.
It is a nice trick. But depends on the spectator you are dealing with. Not everything in the DVD
could be used in my opinion. Anyway, it is a good trick to keep in the pocket or in your wallet,
just to show something very impromptu in an unexpected situation. But I would not use this in a
I use magic to draw attention and don't have enough time to practice. It is a fairly easy trick to
learn and setup, but does need practice for it to look smooth. Also being able to work with coins
well is a big help. If you already do coin slights, you can start doing this one immediately.
After watching Cameron explained how to perform it and the different ways. I decide to take a couple
of coin holders with me, always to blow peoples minds.
Even the my brother who loves card
tricks over doing coins magic thought it was great trick also... he started using it as a
ice-breaker to get people attention when he is at parties or at work.
As a coin collector. I did not hesitate to pull the trigger on this one. If you have a local coin
shop near by pick up a ton of these holders because you will perform it often. Extremely easy to do
and it is very well taught. There are a few different routines explained in excellent detail. I got
my creative juices flowing and having been using a handling that allows you to give your spectator
their signed coin back sealed in the holder as a souvenir. No regrets here.
I love it! Great thinking and routining - clean and a pleasure to practice (and I am sure) perform.
You won't be dissapointed with this one!!
