Finding a minter that would produce such a coin for Ellusionist was a challenge in itself. Our requirements for these coins were very specific in order to attain the qualities that coin magicians covet. Every detail had to be exact, the weight, the thickness, the edges & milling, the color of metal, the darkened patina areas, the design detail, the glide, the noise... there are not many coin makers in the world who were willing to be held to such standards.
At one point, Ellusionist was told by our coin maker, that they did not want to work with Ellusionist any longer because of our strict quality control. However, when the coins were completed, those same people said that they have never made such a beautiful product and they understand now why Ellusionist was so precise.

Very sleek coins. Before I even start a trick with these coins, spectators are already asking questions! These coins are not the quality of some arcade token, oh no. These are perfect for any coin routine.
I love these coins! They are extremely well balanced and easy to manipulate making them just right for tricky sleight of hand moves. I usually use dollar size coins in my routines so these coins offer me two advantages: they are lighter than the Eisenhower or Morgan dollars and they are a lot less expensive than purchasing my coins from coin dealer shops or pawn shops. I just purchased a second order of the copper colored coins and noticed that the silver coins were "out of stock." I hope this means that Ellusionist is not going to discontinue the coins because that would be such a loss. On the other hand, it may make the existing coins already out there collector's items.
I obtained these coins yesterday along with the Metal 1,2,3 DVD set.
I am new to coin tricks, and so far, the first hour of the Metal 1 DVD is incredible.
Unfortunately, these coins are terrible. They are way too thick, probably the width of like 4 quarters. The ridges on the edges are more visual than functional, as the edges are extremely slippery.
My biggest complaint about the coins is that they are painted, and then have a high gloss coating. They don't look like "metal" coins at all, and they are really slippery because of the finish.
These would be great if they were left "unfinished" without paint or gloss, were about 1/2 the thickness, and the edges actually supported gripping them.
The coins in the video and in the pictures look different from mine. They appear to have deeper etched edges, a non-gloss metal finish, and high detail. Mine look like they were dipped in mustard, then gloss finished. They look ugly, and there is hardly any detail because of how much paint was used.
