Ok, so I'm not saying you can't BRIEFLY let people see these up close, you can, they are extremely
well made. I am pleased with the purchase. However the description clearly states that these coins
can be examined, and that statement just doesn't hold water in my opinion. I purchased it based on
that and I'm a bit disappointed.
These coins will NOT hold up to any scrutiny, especially
1 of the 2,.. also I think you should be aware that you can not have the same person hold or examine
the same 2 coins, at the same time.
The routines presented are amazing and it can be done
using the spectator, which in my opinion is worth the cost. And the precision is amazing. With some
thought, you can definitely use both of the coins you're getting in many different ways not
mentioned on the DVD. As for me, I will NEVER hand the one coin out without a switch, which is
annoying considering they didn't mention anything about that and no one in the Penguin Q&A forum did
(at the time of my purchase), and not one of the reviewers. And someone in the forum also mentioned
that they could be handed out. While this is the kind of talk that's just not straight forward, or
what I would say is, "Not the whole truth". It implies things using clever wording that leads you to
believe things that just aren't true, and it's not like they said anything that was a flat out lie,
but the wording is what takes most down that garden path. And sometimes you don't find out until
it's too late, that once again you've purchased something that was too good to be true. I wouldn't
hand out the gaff to anyone personally, anyone who's ever seen or felt a US Quarter will spot an
So take it for what it is, an amazingly precision crafted gaff
that will allow you to create miracles in the spectators own hands, and while using correct
structure, without them ever knowing how. And for me this is what makes this purchase all worth it.
Just keep in mind they can not hold up to any serious scrutiny! You've been warned, if you don't
mind those conditions (which I do not) then you'll have a true miracle. Just think about having to
do a switch,.
All in All, I'm happy with the product, just wish the description and
reviewers before me had said what I'm saying. So 3 stars just because the effect, method, gaffs are
amazing. 2 stars off for claiming they could be examined without clarifying that they can not be
handled together by the spectator, and for only including 1 effect on the DVD with a gaff that is
clearly capable of a million other things! They could have added a few more applications, they are
not hard to figure out, but they could have gone into some extra effects and handling, wouldn't have

I'm a working magician here in Chicago. I have to say this new coin trick is a real worker. I spent
about fifteen minutes practicing. You and if you want your spectator will be performing a miracle.
This trick is the close up coin effect I have been looking to put in my working set. It looks just
as good in real world as it does on video. I welcome any spectator to pull out their phones and film
this effect. I had a spectator play their recorded video over and over. And all they could say was
that really just happened.The price is right on for the quality you get and the teachings and
handlings that are shown. If your looking for the newest greatest coin effect to hit the market in
quite some time pick this gem up.

I've bought many tricks over the years and this is one of the best ever. I've never seen quality
this good in a coin trick. Well worth the price! The only problem is the coins are so good, you
might accidentally spend them. The quality of instruction on the DVD is also really good. Get this

I don't normally post reviews, now I know everyone says that but I just don't care to. I buy tons of
magic all the time. I own a school craft gravity flipper half dollar, it is a traditional version.
The schoolcraft coin will pass viewing examination but not anyone actually handling the coin being
it oesnt lock. Double deception solves the issue very well and in low light working conditions there
is absolutely nothing to see. In high visibility lighting you can see the gaff but you have to know
what to look for to spot it during casual examination. The only thing to spot is a thin line. This
is a worker all day long and well worth the investment. I keep this gaff attached together via the
magnets so even if I were about to spend it I would consciously have to pull them apart. This effect
takes all the work out of performing and allows your personality to shine. Buy now!

best trick I've ever bought. it is so well-made, you really can hand it out. You can reset
completely surrounded. I was just as blown away as my first spectator. I love it.

Amazing. simply Amazing. When i first got the trick i was amazed of how the gimmick was made. I
thought the trick would be like all the other magic tricks i got but when i opened it i was
expecting a bad gimmick like always but this gimmick is so great well worth the 100$.

Yes, these are pricey gimmicks. You get what you pay for. This is my absolute favorite magic
purchase since my walking liberty shell. I've been coming up with more ideas on how to use these
gimmicks every day. My current pet project is to work out a coins through glass table routine where
the spectator handles the coins being tossed through the table.

I want to start by saying the gimmick itself is 5 stars. Looks great, feels great, and is great in
the audience members' hands (as long as you don't give it to "that one guy"). This review is for the
dvd and gimmick combined though. The dvd is where this fell apart for me. The shooting of the film
was of "eh, it's alright" quality, and the only benefit of the dvd is the caring for the gimmick
section...kind of. Once you have the gimmick in your hand you will be able to figure out the
routines without needing to watch the dvd.
The gimmick is really where this shines though,
and with a creative mind you can make up your own fun routines. Be creative.
-ok dvd; it isn't really needed

"Double Deception". Sorry, but I have to tell you, that
the flipper-coin doesn't work, as shown
in the teaching video. If you try to lay the flipped opened coin down on the table , as demonstrated
in the video, it immediatly flipped together. Also the inlay of the coin does
not really match
together, you can see and also the spectator can see that there is a small slit between the shell
and the inlay. If you rub with your thumb over the coin you can feel a sharp edge. This coin is not
examinable by a spectator. The quality isn't as good as described. I've bougth a lot a tricks from
Penguin-magic shop in the past and I was very happy with the tricks, but this was the first
reclamation. I think nearly 100,00 $ is a good price to get products of the highest quality. So far
I could repair it by giving it to juweller how could repair it.
The handling is not as easy as
shown in the video for the coin quarter Dollar is to small. I think the version with the half dollar
coin will work better.
