Not so much Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 8th, 2012
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 out.
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)
Extremely overpriced Report this review

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 effect.
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 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!!
Fun to perform Report this review

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.
Inspiring Report this review

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.
Takes some work.. But I am an insurance agent first. Report this review

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.
Nice trick Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on October 30th, 2012
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 show.
Try it! Report this review

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.
Great Effect Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 30th, 2012
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.
Right effect, wrong product Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on March 16th, 2013
This is not a bad effect. In fact, it has great potential for the creative magician. This is good for the beginning magician, but the more advanced practitioners will not constitute the methodology very revolutionary. If you buy one of these coin holders and start to play with it, you may very well discover the handling and maybe invent something new in the process. That having been said I think mr. Francis does a great job teaching his discoveries and his handling. Personally, I have become more curious in mr. Franicis' work and would love to see more of his effect. Which is exactly why I can give this product only three stars. I would have loved to see this effect included on the $35 "Magic of Cameron Francis" DVD, which is hopefully yet to come, then on a $20 single effect DVD. This would also would be a great effect to have included in a book.
Obviously this a problem with many single trick dvds, and this one is just an example of that particular development in magic. In my opinion, single trick dvd's should only be released for the absolute cherry on the pie, and include the most ingenious and revolutionary of methods. The other effects are great for that magicians great book or DVD, his magnum opus!
