To build the perfect coin we looked to those that had come before. From the Roman Denarius and 16th Century Ducat, through to the Barber Half Dollar and British penny - we studied them all looking for the perfect design and the physical aspects that draw magicians to these small discs of metal.
The 1902 coins feature an unmilled edge which lessens unwanted talk in the hands, but maintains the friction required for effortless palming. The softly burnished faces slide smoothly across each other and won’t catch on a close-up mat when performing a coin matrix.
Shaped to the exact dimensions of silver Kennedy Half-dollars, 1902 coins are a familiar handshake from a good friend.
Full OverviewThe coins were designed to look as if they were issued by a secret society from 1902 - perhaps one to which even Erdnase himself would have belonged. A rumoured initiation into such societies was the initiate’s wearing of a blindfold to complete a challenge, representing that until one was granted access to the inner secrets, they were blind.
The Double-Headed Eagle is the Babylonian symbol of the followers of Ninurta, one of the oldest secret societies in known history. In Akkadian mythology, Ninurta was the God of War, who defeated the monster Anzu to obtain the tablets of destiny - tablets that gave the bearer the power to rule the universe.
'Acta Deos Nunquam Mortalia Fallunt' inscribed along the circumference of the coin is Latin for ‘Mortal Actions Never Deceived the Gods’ whilst the opposite side reads ‘Decipimur Species Recite A Falsis Prinicipiis’ - a bastardisation of ‘Deceived by the false appearance of the right principles’.

Absolutely stunning. They look amazing, feel amazing, and handle amazingly. Living in a country that uses tiny coins in comparison it feels like a breath of fresh air to have these in my hands. I feel it is also a lot easier to talk off having these than it would be to talk off actual American currency. The only downside is that they do catch on my close up mat a fair bit. Would love to see milled edges in the future, and a dollar size with a similar feel but different tails. Great job.
Best coin I ever used, the design was perfect down to the last detail. I spilled a can of coke over it, it had no effect. The size was perfect for my hands. I liked the coin so much I couldn't put it down for the first day I got it. Best coin ever invented. Get it.
Upon opening the package for these 1902's I fell in love! Pros: They are lighter than real half dollars, and about as thin as them. They feel great in the hands, great when finger rolling, palming, etc. Cons: I've noticed when they get scratched they get "shinier" which I don't know is what they are supposed to do. But one of my coins is shiny, and the rest have the "Aged" look to them, it's a bit odd. Also, I have noticed there is copper underneith the finish which kinda makes me afraid they will turn ENTIRELY copper after some use. I no longer carry these in my pockets together in fear of the finish rubbing off of them :/
