Who is he?

Michael Rubinstein, was born in New York in 1956. He became interested in magic when his aunt bought him some magic tricks at the age of nine, but didn't become serious until after someone showed him how to do the French Drop at age fifteen. He got his parents to buy him the Modern Coin Magic book for his birthday and after reading the book cover to cover he began developing his own moves and techniques.

In 1977, Rubinstein moved to Italy to study Veterinary Medicine. It was there that he hooked up with the Italian Magic Organization, and began lecturing, and developing many of the retention techniques that have since defined his style. Michael Rubinstein won first place in the International Close up Competition in Bologna Italy in 1983 (the most important competition in Europe in an off FISM year), and repeated his success by winning first place at the International Close up Competition in St.. Vincent in 1984. In 1985 Rubinstein produced the Master Coin Technique video series in Germany, which was later turned into the Encyclopedia of Coin Sleights, sold by L&L. Many famous magicians, like Reed McClintock and Giacomo Bertini, got their start in coin magic by studying these videos. In 1986 with Videonics, Rubinstein released his Knockout coin Magic video series, which were the first videos ever produced to release unpublished material to magic audiences.

After a brief hiatis from magic, Michael Rubinstein came back with a vengence, forming the The York Coin Magic Seminar along with David Roth, Geoff Latta, and Mike Gallo, Their 16 volume 17 disc DVD set, the New York Coin Magic Seminar DVD series, is the biggest collection of coin magic ever produced on DVD, and contains additional contributions from Kainoa Harbottle, Giacomo Bertini, Scotty York, Bob Fitch, Al Schneider, Eric Jones, Bill Citino, Marc DeSouza, Eric DeCamps, Doug Brewer, Vic Trabucco, Scott Robinson, and Dan Watkins. It has been called by Bill Wells the video Bobo for the 21st century.

Dr. Rubinstein has also published his magical creations in Apocalypse, Richard's Almanac, Magic Magazine, Genii, Looking Glass, Ruminations,. Best of Friends II, and Spectacle, and appeared on the Coinvention DVD, LVMI 2003 DVD, and the European Coin Magic Symposium DVD set. Most recently Dr. Rubinstein was the guest of Honor at the Second European Coin Magic Symposium, held in Milan, Italy, in 2011. He has performed and lectured all over the world, and most recently was a featured close up performer and lecturer at the Magic Castle. Dr. Michael Rubinstein currently lives in New York where he works as a Veterinarian, along with his wife Karen, son Matthew, 4 cats, and Angie the wonder dog.

Nice lecture. I do a version of his Coins Through Table, It's so clean. I think everyone doing coin magic should watch this lecture. Rubinstein knows how to make coin magic entertaining, and there is a lot to learn from this experienced artist.

Great show and lecture. He is one of the old school classic coin magicians along the likes of David Roth and Mike Gallo. Plenty of fresh new ideas and great routines. There is something for everyone here and you will not be disappointed. I wish Mike would publish a hardcover edition book with all of his material.

I've been a card magic nerd for awhile, but I've never really looked into coin magic. When I saw this video coming out, it intrigued me and I thought I'd take the plunge! I picked up this as well as his first Penguin Live lecture.

While the first lecture is a super beginner-friendly introduction into the world of coin magic, this one is quite a bit more advanced. I can't personally do many of the tricks he shows, but after seeing his previous video, it gives me something to aspire to!

But be wary: it also contains the corniest of corny jokes. I lost track of how many times I facepalmed. You can't help but love his stage presence! :)

If you consider yourself to be a strolling magician or a table hopper...if you ever desire to be one, then this lecture is for you! Michael has shares many close up coin effects here that are quick and visual...many requiring no table. Some will take a bit of practice on your part while others are quite simple. All in all, they are simple in plot and highly effective for lay audiences (even magicians).

Of course if you are more into formal style magic then there are several effects here as well...including Michaels take on David Roths purse glass and coins. What makes this so effective is that it is done standing up!

And then you have what is becoming my all time favorite coin routine...Michaels magical money rap. I never laughed so hard watching a coin trick! and if that is not enough...it fools too!!! This trick alone is well worth the price of the lecture!!! I can say a lot more but just get the lecture...you'll be glad you did

Michael RUBINSTEIN was again so great. All the routines can be performed. When i was younger my first step in coin magic was his book "Coin Technique". He is a real master of the Coin Magic Art. Today we can see a lot of card magic, but it is very difficult to create in coin magic and find new effects and routines. For example the Oil and Water with coins is quite great and new. In his magic you have a lot of thinking.

The Dr is in the house Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on August 30th, 2016
Dr Michael Rubinstein's lecture is really good. The Castle Show was a really nice touch to start it out. You get to see his "punny" sense of humor throughout the entire lecture. Saw a couple really cool routines with Quarters that can be done fairly impromptu. (or you could easily carry what you need in very little space). A couple classics and some new spin on different moves. I liked "Copper Silver Extraction" (it will go perfectly with my Ammar "Coins Thru Silk") And the "Substitution Trunk" using an Okito box was really cool. Kind of a big illusion in a close up setting. Also, a nice blank coin routine and a great take on the "Karate Coin" using his thumb (and a series of puns)

A nice dash of theory and discussion on history of some moves. Then going into better detail on moves such as nowhere palm, ROPS, JW grip and several others throughout the routines. A bit of talk on his "prop management".

Overall, I enjoyed it as much as his first Penguin lecture.
