I thought this would be a nice coin trick but I noticed that people figure it out easily. Also the quality of the coin are well... not that good b/c I noticed the silver coating peels off over time. I strongly don't recommend it, get the scotch and soda - now, that's a coin trick worth getting.

Save some money and buy Hopping Halfs. I was planing to get the Hopping Halfs but Penguin was out of stock so I got these but I do not like this because only the one part is examinable. So it lost 2 stars the other star is lost because they are noisey.
Buy only if you are after a certain look Report this review

I like it...but.
The only reason I bought this was because a friend is going to be doing a haunted house with a pirate theme. I wanted to do some coin stuff to occupy people while they were waiting, and I figured I would go with a hopping half routine with coins that fit more with the pirate theme.
This would be the only reason that I would recommend this trick.
Gold & Silver is hopping halves with different coins. If you can do hopping halves, you can do this.
The coins jingle. Loudly. You will need to find a way to hold them so they don't jingle. I believe this can be done, but for the price you should not have to. I would only recommend this trick if you want a hopping halves for a particular kind of show where coins of this style would be more appropriate than a hopping halves set.
Ease of Learning: 7/10
I did a low number because in order to get this to work well, you are going to have to re-learn how to manipulate the coins so they don't jingle. This will take some practice.
The coins, for the cost, are expensive. They need to be made to much tighter tolerances. If this were done, this would be on a par with hopping halves, but as it stands, it is just a knockoff that should be avoided unless you are going for a particular look. And because I wanted a particular look, I bought them. But once the event is over, this trick will languish until the next themed party/event where I can use them again.

Just received this trick, and I must say that the quality of the coins is excellent. Effect happens exactly as advertised by Penguin Magic, and the result is very nice.
Though this trick is advertised as self working, some practice is still required to ensure that the coins are handled as silently as possible.
An excellent trick overall.
A Must Have for Close-Up Report this review

If you only have one coin effect in your close-up bag, make it Gold & Silver. With minimal practice for handling, you can look like a sleight of hand expert, plus you end completely clean!
But don't simply go through the moves, get a patter or better yet a story to go with this effect. I use a "romantic" one about two coins (John & Penny) who found each other in a vending machine in London and promised to never be parted, even if it took "magic" to keep them together. Three seperations later, with Penny laid on the train track and John "following her" to coin heaven, they both vanish. (fill in the seperations with people taking them to different parts of the world for coin collecting, toll booths, wishing wells, etc)
This is a true performance item because there's no complicated moves and it's 90% presentation. Highly recommended!

I really like your trick. That's why I gave you a 5.
Beautiful but... Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on November 4th, 2003
This is a visually stunning trick...when it can be pulled off quietly. The coins are beautifully made and solid, but requires much practice to ensure that the audience won't hear your gimmick at work. Scotch and Soda is much more effective.
