This will be hard to review without giving away the secret. First off this could have been a 5
minute download for half the cost, when I opened up the package I said where's the prop? The idea
was worth the money spent, as I would have never thought of it and I'm looking forward to making a
good coin to do it live. I have found and bought the main ingredient and have made a rough prop to
test and as I said before great idea, it works but I had to go on line to learn what to use and how
to make the set up, as the instructions were very lacking. The ingredient and set up should have
been in the package and I would have spent $50.00 more. I'm still working on making a good set up
but I know this could be professionally made much better, easier and cheaper then I can. 5 stars for
the idea but ended up on 2 stars for the very poor marketing as I know some if not most magi will
think it a rip off and put it in the some day drawer and not put the extra money, time, research and
effort this needs to be a great trick.

Its been a month now since my first review and I have been working on this for six weeks. I finely
got my first good coin last night and after many try's and molds (use silicone) this one looked
great, it felt and looked real (I used a quarter). But alas it was not to be this try, as I was
cleaning up the mold pip I snapped it in half, I almost cried. Close to $100.00 in supplies and over
20 hours in research and many tries and retries (not including waiting for the delivery of supplies
and set times). But I finally have a good mold and will make another coin today (be careful the coin
is brittle). I did a test with the two halves and starting with the coin at room temp it took four
minutes to melt in my hand. I upped it to three stars this time as I know the dedication, time and
money it takes will have me one of just a few who do this and this will be the one they remember, I
will use this in my coins around the world routine and pick this coin out of 100 assorted coins but
if you get the mold right and be patient it looks and feels real (I did a double side mold). If you
want to do something no one else dose buy this idea (it is only the idea) but only if you want to
put a lot of effort in to it.
