Imagine the power of this awesome effect: You show a coin and place it on your hand (or even a spectator's hand for added power). With complete confidence you wave your hand (fingers open) over the coin...

The coin vanishes right before the spectator's eyes in one of the most visual moments in all of magic. The best part is, your hands end up completely clean!

No sleights, no odd moves. This is truly one of the best investments in all of street magic.

Besides the vanish, you can even make the coin turn into another coin or shrink it into a miniature-size coin. Many additional effects are possible with bills, matchbooks, and playing cards.

Why we Love it

  • It looks like real magic.
  • It's a professional effect that's easy to perform
  • We love blowing away other magicians when we perform the Raven in short sleeves!
  • It's a great investment because many other effects become possible when you own the Raven.
This is The Original Raven.

It's very cool but useful only to a certain point. Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on October 31st, 2010
First off, just because this is only getting 3 stars doesn't mean I don't think this is extremely cool or hard hitting magic. In fact, it's an incredible effect. But for me, it all boils down to practicality.

If you are a good coin handler, basically everything you can do with the raven can also be done without the gimmick. Maybe not quite as perfectly cleanly, but pretty darn close. In my honest opinion, someone performing the raven vanish versus someone performing a fluid retention vanish...the effect is identical in the mind of a spectator. Maybe I'm just being a purist, but if you can do something ungimmicked I don't see a reason to gimmick it.

Here's the trade-offs in a nutshell. Using the Raven, you will be performing arguably the cleanest vanish in magic. However you will be forced to wear a gimmick when you perform. Unless you live in certain countries, you will not be able to use regular coins in your vanishes. You won't be able to borrow US currency and do this [editors note: without a switch]. Whether or not its worth it is up to you.

The Raven Is Standard Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on July 22nd, 2010
If you're a fan of close up magic this is pretty much a must have. The effects you can do really hit home. I had one for 5 years before having to replace it.

The only reason I'm giving it a 4 star review is the shell nickel is comes with wasn't the same as the mini-nickel also included. The shell was a new nickel (with the new face) and the mini one was an old nickel.

just a great trick Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on May 24th, 2010
so i must say i love this effect. i bought this years and years ago, one of the only tricks i own i didn't get from penguin, but i was at my local magic shop and the owner recommended this to me. i live in canada and for once it is an advantage for a trick, our coins are different up here and don't require special gimmicks to make it work. highly recommend it, especially to canadians, self working and hits hard. even if i needed to practice a little more with other countries coins i would gladly just because of the jaw droppin reactions you will get.

RAVEN! Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 5th, 2010
This is a fantastic gimmick and arguably one of the most well known in all of magic... for good reason.

Having the ability to do a "bare-handed" coin vanish on the SPECTATORS hand without EVER TOUCHING their hand is just... An amazing ability worth hundreds of dollars, if you were to put a value on it.

Regardless, this is a gimmick that does not only vanish, oh no. The ideas don't stop when you pick this up; you can vanish, change and manipulate objects at will and end COMPLETELY clean afterwards. If you don't own one of these, pick it up now.

Recommended.

Good but not for me Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 4th, 2010
This is a great one but If you like me and just wear a short sleeve shirt all the time then this is not for you...If you wear a jacked or sleeves then this will make you very happy.

the raven I love it! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 18th, 2003
this was the first gimmick that I every bought. The first day, I showed it to everyone. Everyone saw it. So I practiced and practiced and then I started to amaze people. If you buy this, you will have to practice it before you are good enough, you won't be able to do the effect right out of the box. But that doesn't mean that it isn't good, I love it and use it all the time. I have seen bad reviews of this because they didn't practice and mess around with it until they were good enough to perform it.

P.S. If you buy this, I would HIGHLY reccomend buying the video with it, Chuck Leach shows many tips tricks with it that helped me a lot. Most importantly, you learn the empty hand move, this enables you to show your hands empty at any time during the effect.
