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.

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.
I love these coins they are so good and very soft feel to my hands. each time I perform 3 fly it is so appealing to the spectator. some pros and cons. the coin is kind of hard to palm because of its thickness..
These are some sleek looking coins. They are very smooth to the touch and look very appealing. The downside is that they are pretty thick which limits the number you can hold out. They are also very smooth on the edges so it makes them a bit more difficult for me to palm them.
Very nice coins. There is an optical illusion with them when compared to a US half dollar in that it appears smaller until you place one on top of the other. My only critic is that it seems to be a little to thick. If it was 1 1/2 the thickness of a real half-dollar it would be a perfect thickness. Otherwise very nice coins.
I just got a hold of a copper and silver dollar coin today. Man these things are smooth, and they look amazing when doing a coin color change. Perfect size so folks don't have to squint when your doing a trick.
I love the look of these coins. But they have very little grip and are so thick its hard to hold more than two in a hand. At least for me they were awful.
After handling the half dollar for a little while I just had to try a dollar size. It's just as good as its smaller counterpart.
These coins are excellently made and are of extreme quality. However they are a bit thick and cumbersome to use, although they may be good for practice they are not great for performance.. I have on several occasions gone to start a coin effect or routine and had people immediately discredit me, assuming that I was using fake coins. Even after inspection by the audience, I still never get back to the point where I would have been had I just pulled out four half dollars and started the effect. To sum up, these coins are great for rehearsals but would need some clever set up or patter for them to be used effectively in front of laymen.
I just got the copper half dollar size a couple of days ago. this is a beautiful coin. I'm not used to the thickness of it yet, but it handles great. Can't wait to get a few more
