Full Overview

Latin Phrase meaning:

"I Remain Unvanquished" - (invictus maneo)

"From Possibility to Reality" - (A posse ad esse)

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.

    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

    Great coins, using it for color changes mostly. One side of the coin (heads) have too mady sharp texture points and it sticks to my mat. Can't move it smoothly on it.

    These coins are beautiful! I bought the half dollar size love the look and feel and they don't talk very much. Only thing is the grip for classic palm is not what I thought it would be but I'm learing to move them a bit so they hold better.

    I just got this today and I have to say its a great addition to my magic kit. it handles great, very comfortable for palming, and the design is fantastic. I recommend anyone who does coin magic or just magic in general to purchase this.

    I have really enjoyed these coins! They look absolutely stunning and feel very nice as well. I don't have any of the half-dollar sized ones, only the dollar sized ones but I like them very much. They are great for coin color changes, and are very comfortable in your hand. I will say that the dollar sized ones tend to be a little too slippery for me sometimes though. Maybe that is different with the half-dollar ones. Overall, I like them a lot!

    If you do coin magic, GET THIS COIN!!! This is the first review I have ever written for a magic product, I normally don't write reviews unless something really blows me away. Well, the Artifact R2 coins did that!!! Absolutely amazing! My standard palm is EFFORTLESS with this coin! I love it! Highly recommended, especially if you are working through Eric Jones' "Metal" 1-3 (also highly recommended!).

    I bought the half dollar bronze coin. What a great looking coin. Very comfortable in my hand and it just looks amazing.

    Awesome Coins. Easily the best coins for coin magic out there. The Custom gaffs that roy keuppers makes are not only lower priced than say, a walking liberty gaff, and just as good, if not better for sleights etc. Highly recommend

    Great coins, I got them to use with metal. and was lucky to get a gold one. They work wonderful palming and have low "noise" like they this say but they're not silent. If you want to look cool doing your coin magic get these.

    Not only is the size good but the weight is perfect for it to be comfortable palmed, be in in classic, finger, thumb or any other palm you might have taken from Metal. The number 1 coing for magic, the only issue is you cant borrow and that if you don't use circulated coins people wonder if they are gimmicked.

    Very easily, these look great and are a must have for anyone that likes doing any type of coin magic. If you want expanded shells you can get those as well through Roy Kuepper's site so you have no excuse not to buy these.
