"Gerti punched me in the face. I struggle to remember a time I was fooled worse than Romanos fooled me with one of these routines!!!" -Dee Christopher

"A nice touch to the "which hand" concept with a simple and very well thought out method! Bravo my friend!" -Luca Volpe

You have two coins; you ask a spectator to sign one of the coins. You invite the spectator to place one coin in your hand and one other coin in their own hand. Without looking you are able to reveal which of you has the signed coin. You can also tell which hand holds which dated coin.

The gimmick is undetectable and makes for some amazing routines.


Lie Detection
You have two coins of the same denomination, one signed by the spectator. You turn around and the spectator keeps one coin and places the other in your hand. You then reveal who has the signed coin.

You have three coins of the same denomination. The spectator mixes the coins and then places one coin in your left hand, one in your right hand, and keeps the third coin themself. You then reveal what is the date of the coin in your left, your right hand and, finally, the spectator’s hand.

Similar to the ‘dates’ routine, but you number the coins and reveal who has which numbered coin.

With the gimmicked coin supplied all of the above, and more, is possible. The only limit is your imagination.

What you get

  • DVD with full explanations

  • A custom, gimmicked U.S quarter

I've been using Gerti the last week and it's a winner. The DVD is well done with thorough explanations and extra routines.

For the basic lie detector routine, there really isn't anything to learn except a routine. The better the routine, the stronger the impact.

I ask if they have a quarter ( the one time someone didn't, I gave them one to use ) I take a few coins from my pocket. I have a penny, nickel, dime and 3 quarters ( one of them is Gerti ).

My gimmick has my initials pre-signed. When I take the change from my pocket ( I simply make an adjustment so my initials aren't showing.

I have them initial their quarter and then I pretend to initial mine. They take both quarters and I turn my back, holding out my hand for them to place one of the coins into my hand.

That's it. You know which coin you have. The rest is acting/routining.

People are gobsmacked that you can know which quarter is where based on their tells. I'll carry this with me, always!

I liked the lie detector trick as there are many possibilities with two coins. I think the three coin trick is more problematic as the order of the coins can easily be changed inadvertently by a spectator. For this reason I am giving the trick four stars. I still expect to get a lot of mileage out of the gimmick.

Very cool concept and super easy to do. The DVD is not as clear on the three coin method as the other tricks, so that will take some practice to understand, but it is probably the strongest on the DVD. I mean three coins are shown, the dates remembered, then placed in three different hands and you know where each one is? POWERFUL.

I am not sure how easily this will fly by a spectator if you let them look at it, but done casually, this is fantastic!
