These coins are precision made by a very elderly gentleman in his workshop. Much effort is put into making sure that 8 individual specialized, tiny magnets are loaded into the .50 cent piece in exactly the right way and direction, to get the effect of the coin jumping into the air. This is the reason for the somewhat high price tag on the item. Very few shops, if any these days, carry the product.
ATTENTION: DO NOT DROP. THIS COIN IS PRECISION MADE AND CANNOT BE GUARANTEED BY ELLUSIONIST IF DROPPED ONTO A HARD SURFACE.
Amazing how well-made this coin really is. Almost invisible alterations. You really need to examine the coin closely to see any irregularity. Works very well in many PK effects. U.S. half dollar is an excellent size to work with. Great addition to M-5 system or any other strong magnet.
This item is pricey but is worth the money.
