Features two NEW coin gimmicks: the 'Whisper Coin' and the 'Face Lift' coin!

Both coins were designed by Jay and every coin is specially-machined + hand-crafted by master coin make Roy Kueppers!

The project also includes a full-length DVD featuring a lethal collection of effects and handlings designed to to SQUEEZE the maximum amount of shocking magic out of the two special coins.

Most of the effects require only BASIC sleight-of-hand. (If all you can do is a Bobo Switch or Shuttle Pass, you'll be performing shocking effects within MINUTES of watching the DVD!)

The DVD also includes exciting handlings for more advanced students!

Use the two special coins together OR use them separately. The magic possibilities are endless!

You can perform Jay's 'ROUND TRIP' effect with ANY borrowed quarter. It doesn't matter which date or from which 'state.' You will be able to perform this insane effect with ANY quarter you are handed!

'ROUND TRIP' also makes for the ideal opening effect! Borrow any quarter and do something AMAZING in LESS THAN 10 SECONDS.



Borrow a quarter and have a spectator initial it on both sides of the coin with an indelible marker. To check that the initials are dry, you give the coin a quick rub against your sleeve...and you impossibly RUB OFF all the details from the 'head side' of the coin, including the initials! Now one side of the borrowed coin has the spectator's initials, and the other side is a shocking BLANK. You turn over the coin, rub the 'tail side' against your sleeve, and RUB OFF all the details on that side of the coin too! Of course, everybody wants to examine the insane-looking coin...and THEY CAN. To finish, you wrap a small piece of tissue around the surreal 'blank coin' and in a flash of fire all the details suddenly reappear on both sides of the borrowed coin, including the spectator's own initials! Bam! Bam! Bam! Three jaw-dropping 'magic moments,' one right after the other, and then you immediately return the borrowed coin, still initialled on both sides! A killer opening effect you can perform with ANY quater!


Have someone drop a borrowed coin inside an empty glass or coffee cup. Then hand out a strange coin to be examined. The coin is the same size as a quarter, but it has no markings of any kind on either side of the coin. Explain that, "It's a coin blank from the U.S. mint. I bought it at a coin collector's shop." Drop the 'unminted coin' into a glass and ask someone to gently shake the glass so the borrowed coin and the 'coin blank' rub against each other. After a few moments, ask someone to examine both coins. They discover that vague, ghost-like features have mysteriously APPEARED on the blank coin. Even stranger, the features are a perfect match to the designs on the borrowed quarter...INCLUDING THE SAME DATE!

Good but Video Misleading Report this review

I purchased the trick and received it and was a bit surprised to see that the coins received did not match the coins in the video. The US coins have the copper coming through on the one coin, which he does mention in the video but he uses a solid silver one for illustration purposes in the videos in combination with the US quarter. Be aware when ordering!

I bought this for only 12 bucks on one of the Blizzard deals. Awesome! Anything that includes not one but two gimmicks and a dvd for a reasonable price is a great deal. Add these two coin gimmicks to a little bit of imagination and you can come up with some incredible effects! And I actually love the fact that one of my gimmicks actually has some copper coloring that almost looks like the imprint of an eagle. Looks very realistic!

Excelllent DVD for basic coin sleights Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 8th, 2013
I took advantage of the "Cool Box" deal to purchase a second set of these, due to my propensity of accidentally using gaffed quarters to buy $20 Cokes.

Gaffs that you can hand out for examination are always cool, and this effect includes two of them.

But it was the DVD that gave this five stars for me. I've always been weak on coin sleights, and Sankey spends plenty of time walking you through some great utility sleights. And it's broken down into chapters so that you can easily skip any slight you already know. (But I wouldn't recommend that, as he lends some new insight I hadn't heard before to something even as basic as the Bobo Switch.)

And finally, my next order will likely include Joshua Jay's "Pro Carrier," to hold these and my other gaffed coins, so I won't be buying any more $20 Cokes.
