Metal 3: Gaffed Coin Magic
IMPORTANT: You must have Flipper and Expanded Shell coins to perform the material in Metal 3. We have established a partnership with master machinist Roy Kueppers who can create all of the required gaffs for Metal 3. You can reach him here. Note: Gaffed coins are not included with this DVD.
Metal 3 includes 9 of Jone's best routines taught in high-definition detail. It introduces shells and flipper coins, with a sniper-like attitude to making people question reality when they see magic like this.
'Sleight of hand takes you part of the distance. Gaffs create the difference between something that's amazing… and a real miracle.' -- Eric Jones
What's on the DVDMetal 3 includes 9 full-force routines taught in high-definition detail. It introduces shells and flipper coins, and a host of moves that can be performed with them.
• EJ Copper Silver - A copper coin to silver coin routine that happens in the spectators hands. You have to see this one to believe it.
• Tap Change - An instant, open handed change of a coin that looks like a camera trick.
• 2 Coin Production & Vanish - Watch as 2 coins, phase in and out of existance, time and time again.
• Submerged - 3 Coins, through the table, one by one while the SPECTATOR catches the falling coins as the pass through the wood.
• Ode to Latta - 3 Coins pass through the body to the other hand, then vanish one by one.
• Pac Man Production - A quick, sharp 3 coin production to start off a routine right.
• Glitch Change - A slow, slow elegant coin change from silver, to copper, back to silver. The change, slowed down, is so striking.
• 3 Coin Vanish - Watch them fade out of sight, one by one, until nothing is left.
• Flash Coins Re-Lit - Worth the price of the DVD. This is our favorite coin rotuine of all time. Have to see it to believe it.
• Introduction to Gaffs
• Gaffs; an inside look
• Tips, Performance footage and more.
If you don't own any coins we highly recommend picking some up. Ellusionist sells high-quality, custom Artifact coins (half dollar size) that will glimmer as you perform. The coins that we sell are NOT gaffed coins.

Excellent teaching by an excellent teacher! Eric really goes into details as always! A lot of great tricks! Buy it, you wont regret it!
Even if you are not a fan of gaffed coins, this is still a must buy. Every now and then Eric teaches something within a gaffed routine that can be performed without them. And as always, Eric's teaching is excellent.
Very good teaching by Eric Jones. Never liked gaffed coins. But now i really do! This is a must buy for every coin magician out there!
You are not performing magic at this point, but miracles. The gaffed coins open unnumbered possibilities.
Best gaff dvd. Eric is the best teacher . You can't miss this!!!
I picked this up off of Eric Jones himself at a convention in May. He is one of the best educators around. These videos are really high quality, and he is so detailed that you never feel lost in the magic. This one has some of my favorite effects ever. I recommend them all.
Best DVD out of the trilogy. Ive never used Gaffed coins until I watched this. It is pricey but it is totally worth it. Every routine in the DVD is incredible.
Great overview of gaffed coin magic. Way too pricey for this volume, IMO...
The coins themselves are going to cost you a fortune and then this DVD is only going to teach you a couple tricks with each. Ouch. But great teaching as always! Just a bit light on the number of effects. I'd say 3.5 stars.
Well i have to say metal 3 is by far the best coin magic dvd ive ever seen as a matter a fact the whole series is great. Now as far as metal 3 is concerned Eric jones provides you with the most pratical & hard hitting routines to work with. the gaffs for the most part are not that bad to buy. I know the other reviews say there expensive but the overall product vaule of this dvd is unreal. Iam sure whenever you started magic you wanted to do the impossible and make it look like trick photograhy well with Metal 3 you can do that. Eric shows you so many pratical things you can do with gaffs that your creative think and knowledge will go into creative mode after you learn the sleght. Hell if you go out and perform these routines for a gig you can make the money back in a week. This Dvd is a wtf was that kinda thing people will freak out like never before buy it.... trust me you wont be as good as the guy who did buy it learned it and are out there performing it. Dont be cheap if you want to be great than buy everything that comes with it...its not a brand new car or laptop for crying out loud just buy the stuff.......Iam done its your loss if you wait around for the next best thing in my oppion this is as strong as coin magic can get.
I don't own this DVD yet but I'll be getting it soon. This is a reply to Robert Justin's review.
Yes those gaffs on their own is pretty expensive, especially if you buy most of them from the high end coin gaff makers like Schoolcraft or Larsen, but Johnson isn't too bad.
If you go onto Johnson and buy a Hopping Half set you've got not only an amazing gaff routine, but you also have an Expanded Shell and Sun/Moon coin, so that takes care of 2 of the gaffs right there.
Next is the Flipper Coin, some are terrible, others are sublime, imo if you're wanting one that looks amazing you'll have to get at least a Roy Kueppers one, he makes some beautiful Flipper Coins, and they're not terribly expensive, about $38 for the common US Half Dollar one's, and anywhere between $75 and $230 for the better one's.
imo I think it'd be better to buy the more expensive one's like the Magnetic Gravity Flipper Coins, they make the moves a lot easier and a lot more magical.
