I'm disappointed with the Kreis magnetic half dollars. Based on the video on the Penguin Magic
website, I bought two of them, and they are quite strong magnets. Unfortunately, they do not stand
up to inspection. Any casual observer can see that the coins have been modified. This was not clear
from the info on the website.
Years ago, when Pat Mollo was making special coins, he
produced very high quality pieces. His coins were great, and easily passed inspection. The ones
I've received are ok for some uses, but need to be switched out -- they can't be shown.
don't think the website information about this product is clear enough (and might even be
characterized as misleading). I think the product should be accurately described, and should help
customers by clearly stating the limitations of these coins.

I checked several magic shop sites and they were asking from $42 to $48 each for these same coins.
Also, I would suggest that you buy some new Kennedy halves from USMint.gov to match your mag coins.
I had some older half dollars that were older, more worn and less shiny than the two Super Strong
2013 coins I purchased. The US Mint coins are uncirculated, so by using them along with the mag
coins, attention won't be focused on the mag coins as being so different.

It is strong, sure.
It looks half dollar-y,yes.
But it can not be casually examined by
anyone that has ever held money.
I need a strong coin for a mentalism routine, this is not
the best choice.
But if you use two of them for the coins across they may be better.
For my use, 1 star. For not examined coins across, maybe a 3. Splitting the difference, I am
rating a 2.
The coin bulges a bit and looks messy at the edges.

100% realiable, a perfect acquisition. If you have the PK Ring DVD, you can improve many routines
using this magnetic coin.

The coin works perfectly with Sixth Sense 2.5 -- and that's all it needs to do!

Awesome coin gimmick If you got a purpose or routine, just keep it in a case or you will lose it
forever and these coins are Pricey but worth it.
They are not cheap but I’m very satisfied. Don’t hesitate and buy them. I tried to find cheaper once
with the same quality but I wasted time and money. So be smart and buy these. “Kreis Magic” gives
you very high quality. The only negative I can say is that I wished I could buy these coins for 2
Euro Currency but if you want to use them in Euro you can buy the 50 Cent super strong magnetic
The Super strong magnetic half dollars coins are the perfect coins for products like
“ The Silver Edge 1 and 2” and other similar products.
I don’t need to say that these Coins are
very Strong. They are fast shipped by Penguin and very good packaged.
I LOVE these brilliant coins. The coins across is astounding...and takes a few special moves taught
on Kreis own DVD. I have used two of these with two ungifted coins for years!! YET....I am shocked
at the blasé manner in which Penguin reveals openly the method and effects of these fantastic coins
on the Lax video. I mean...this is a BIG SECRET. Painful to watch this full exposure. It is almost
vulgar. Maybe they will consider reshooting this or removing it.
NO CREDIT is given for the
coins across with Kreis coins, which is ALL performed exactly and COPIED here, as on the original
Japanese video DVD I purchased from the inventor himself at a convention in Vegas years ago. Lax is
given credit for coming up with these BRILLIANT new methods created in Japan by the uninformed...
Perhaps worst of all is the lack of care for how to pronounce Kreis. "Or however I'm supposed to say
it..." as a throwaway joke...With little research one can discover the correct way to pronounce and
respect an inventors name. I am a Penguin customer and will continue to be so...but, UGH, what is
the selling of magic coming to? Forgetting the first rule of magic?
