"It's more than just a coins across, more than a series of sleights... it's an example of how real magic would look." -Eric Jones

"It is the only coin trick I would ever do. It's that strong." -Luke Jermay

"This effect does not just teach you how to manipulate coins, but how to manipulate your audience. That is what the best magic always accomplishes." -Kainoa Harbottle

There is no magic without imagination. Everything starts with imagination; a smile, a sculpture, the Mona Lisa, the Pyramids of Giza. But what if you could take them beyond what they expect? Beyond magic? Beyond their imagination?

Imagination Coins allows your audience to do the magic in their own hands. Simple, clear and beyond anything they can imagine. If you have used Imagination Coins in the past this information will bring you into a new world of effectiveness.

The spectator clearly has four coins that they stack in their own hand. The magician does nothing as the spectator imagines giving the magician a coin and somehow even though the magician does not touch or go near the spectator, it happens: the coin ends up leaving the spectator's hand and materializing in the magician's hand. Then, with another feat of imagination, the coin manifests itself back into the hand of your spectator.

Garrett's Imagination Coins concept gets revisited and updated with a treasure trove of special bonuses that get even stronger reactions! He re-teaches the original version now with more detail and more intimate close up instruction. Special Guest Eric Jones stops by to interview Garrett on this effect and share some of his personal thoughts on Coins Across.

Many magicians have taken Garrett's workshop or private lesson on David Roth's Coins Across. Garrett touches on every phase of this classic effect. His complete Coins Across workshop is available here for the first time ever.

As a special Bonus you receive the method for the effect that Garrett calls Jump: four quarters being trapped by two pennies instantly vanish between the pennies and appear into your hand.

Gimmick and small, black, silicon change coin purse included.

Simply put, a worker. Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on January 21st, 2014
When I saw that Garrett Thomas was coming out with a new release I sat up on the edge of my seat and took a look at my finances. I just recenlty dug out my Stand-Up Monte and gave it the practice it deserves and gave it a few performances, it won me over and now I could be what they call a "stalker', this guy has worker material that hits them between the eyes. His stuff isn't the easiest but it's worth the time and effort to gather all the subtleties. The intro starts off with Garrett stating which form of gimmick he uses in certain situations. Justifying why he uses quarters in friendly situations and why he uses something bigger in half dollars in a situation not unlike a paid gig, and it has nothing to do with hiding the method.

Well now that I can stop acting like a Garrett Thomas fanboy, I can get on to the meat of this review, the trick itself. I don't think the secret to this effect is unknown but for safety sake I will call the secret something, "the gimmick". This comes with a nice tiny purse, it feels of rubbery material which seems to only fit the gimmick and dollars worth of quarters. Half dollars will not fit in the coin purse. The 2-Phase routine is shown in live performance at a table, even the 2 phase is hard hitting, but I dig the practice and will go with the "4-phaser". The added phases are a coins across in the magicians own hands, not unlike David Roth's Super Clean Coins Across. The last move from both phases are going to take work to make look natural, and G.T.'s live performances of both are going to give you the timing of the move. He gives alternatives where you don't even have to do the move, but it makes for an impossible conclusion.

There are a few behind the bar performances, one kid has a "EATCT" t-shirt so it's not fully laymen, but a mixture, I assume, more laymen than magicians.

I really enjoyed watching the "Audience Management" portion, he gives sound reasoning for actions and how to manage his audience for this effect. And if you didn't find the important timing of the last move of the phases in the explanation, it's found in the "Audience Management" portion, this one really helped me out on the move."OTS" is the Over the shoulder portion which gives great insight on all the required moves, I believe he did this in the Stand-Up Monte DVD, this is great, thorough as can be, great for following along and practice. He gives an quick performance and explanation to Eric Jones, small G.T. touches here worth learning but not much different than a normal C.A. routine, great to have on this DVD though, the handling is a touch different than other handlings I've seen. "Zero Coins Across" is a great conversation to watch between Eric Jones and Garrett Thomas, they share their theory on the impact of coins across and natural blocking techniques, Eric Jones showcases the way he does coins across, I believe this is on his "Extension of Me" and boy is it great! The "Jump" ending is one to practice when you have a table and they are bugging to ask you to "do it again". Quarters sandwhiched inbetweeen 2 pennies, that are used for a distraction, are place on the table, the quarters vanish from in between the pennies with a wave of the hand and appear under your other hand on the table or in the other hand, depending on what variation you want to use. The bloopers are the guys messing around probably in between shoots, just fun to watch.

I feel that this is a worker routine and one to really practice, even if it's just the 2-phase routine it's sooo darn worth it.

This is coin "Magic" Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on January 17th, 2014
Imagination Coins is intimate coin "magic" because it happens in their hands and their minds. It's the prefect effect for the close up worker.

With Garrett Thomas's "Imagination Coins", coins vanish and appear in their hands. For lay people, there is only one explanation: it's magic.

There's no filler on this DVD. Garrett takes us on a 2 hr. adventure tipping the real work on his prized coin effect. An effect he's performed thousands of times until it reached perfection.

Imagination Coins takes the coin across plot where it's never gone before and Garrett gives his full workshop on his favorite coin effect!

All in all, this trick is amazing!
The DVD is flawless and covers more than enough.

For international buyers;

There is only one thing I can fault. The gimmick is great,
but there are no more coins to complete this trick.
As I live in Australia, our currency is different and there is no way of getting American coins.. Real bummer when I went to banks and money exchange places to get 4 quarter dollars/half dollars and none can be found.

I have tried completing this trick with our currency but 8/10 notice the different coin.

With the price I payed I expected all the coins to be included. Other wise its a great trick but unless you have American currency, i'd think twice.

Nolini's Rating Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on January 25th, 2014
This trick is, simply put, amazing. I got this trick and learned it in 1 day. It is relatively simple slight of hand.

Out of all the tricks that I have, this one definitely gets the best reactions. It is even better than "Vanishing Pen!" I love close-up, so this is my dream trick.

Once you learn the method and how simple the gimmick is, you can get other gimmicks and do the trick with others.

It also comes with a GREAT coin purse!

Could have been better Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on January 23rd, 2014
Seriously Garrett Thomas, you charged $40 and you could have throw a few American quarter dollar coins so people from other countries could perform straight out of box. I am so disappointed with the purchase as I dont have American coins. Overpriced gimmick where you can get it way cheaper somewhere else. Get outta your shell Garrett Thomas and do the right thing

A real worker! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on January 25th, 2014
All I can say about this trick is HOLY CRAP! I never doubted this trick and I just bought it hoping that it would by easy to perform and that it really does what it says. I got it in the mail and found the gimmick. They include a really great DVD and coin purse to keep your gimmicked coin in. When I saw the gimmick, I was surprised. It was a gimmick that I was familiar with but didn't have. It was simple yet so deceptive. It really does have great reactions and since the magic happens in the spectators' hands, they even had a section on the DVD about audience management. I like that you don't have to use sleeves and there is no complicated slight of hand. This is not for an absolute beginner but great for novice magicians of any age. Minimal slight of hand skill required. It was a great trick and I will be sure to use it whenever I can! I bet you all are wondering what the gimmick is. I have the joy of knowing. If you want it, then go buy Imagination Coins. The only issue is that they went really cheap on the packaging. There are no flaws with the routines though!!! Go out and buy this not and stop thinking about it. It's worth the money!

This is strong magic! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 10th, 2014
I still have not showed this to anyone because I want to do this justice when I do. This will require some practice as one of the moves I don't have experience doing. Garret does this very very well and thats how I want to do it. If you want people to just go into shock then buy this and put the time into it to do it justice.
