DISCLAIMER: For those with allergies to Nickel, we don't advise you perform Geraint Clarke's 'in the mouth' variation. He has no allergies to metal, so knew it was safe. Please be aware of this before performing.
FAQ'sBut what if I don't see my currency in the list?
The coin comes in US Quarter, UK 10p & 50cent Euro coins. Don't worry, Geraint's bonus section teaches you a presentation to non-suspiciously perform this with ANY of the 3 gaffs, in any country.
Do I need anything else?
No. Everything you need to perform this effect is shipped to you in 2 self contained gaffs.
Does this mean I need to carry 2 new gaffs with me?
Absolutely not. Based on your chosen presentation, you can just carry one.
Can it break?
No. You'd probably have to have a train ride over it to do any damage.
What if I accidentally spend it?
You can hire Ninja's to break into the store you spent it in to retreive it. Or order another one. Whichever is easier.
I have a serious Nickel allergy, can I still perform this?
As you're only touching the gimmick briefly during performance. Each persons reaction is different. Some top magicians coat their gaffs in a clear sealant to combat the allergy.
However, Lloyd Barnes on our team has an allergy and he wasn't affected at all by touching the gimmicks all day during filming. You'd have to assess your tolerance.

TimThe US Quarter is not even close to the right thickness, the edges are almost completely smooth - poor quality, they are also not the right size to classic palm - a complete rip off, could never be handed out for examination -a Ellusionist should offer a refund to this loyal customer,
CriomhthannThis trick has a good concept and is easy to carry around at all times. However, the manufacturing quality of the gimmicks was quite disappointing. Despite what Perseus says about the quality, this trick is just sadly not worth the price.
SummaryThe trick concept is amazing but the gaff coins are marginal. There's no way you can hand these out. A total waste of money, save your money and buy something else
SummaryI love the effect. Great responses and one of my favorites. Definitely a every day carry. Just slightly angle sensitivite
SummaryPerseus is a very creative worker. He takes classic concepts and breathes new life into them, while creating methods that will stand the test of repeated performances. These gaffs are made from normal coins so you really do get the visual of minting or blanking a real coin.
Plus, it's not your average coin trick. This is something most people will never see before or after you do it for them.
SummaryWell this will be my third attempt for a review; I'd hate to think that negative reviews are being discarded, so here I go one more time. The concept for Forge is excellent, the handling is very basic coin switches, very easy for experienced and fairly easy for novices. My issue is with the "coins", they don't look like or feel anything like a real quarter (thinner, less weight, just doesn't feel even close). I thought I'd still give it a try, but every adult I showed Forge to, either immediately saw that the gimmicked coin was not even close to a quarter, and when improvised and did a "spell bound" change an 8 year old saw that it wasn't a real quarter. And don't even bother putting the coin in someone's hand, thin, light, "coin blank" isn't even close to the feel of a real quarter. Maybe the other coins are better made, but to me this was a waste of $24. BUT AGAIN, I do love the concept, and with a better product, I think this can be an amazing coin routine, being very easy to build on as the crowd dictates.
SummaryI got the Euro version which comes as a 50 cent coin. The gimmick is slightly smaller than a regular 50 cent coin and about half as thick. This means when the coin is completed clear it cant be examined as it feels too light to be an actual 50 cent piece
SummaryForge is an amazing TABLE/BAR trick to carry at all times. I say this because it is not normal to carry around a glass of water or ask for it from strangers; Unless you are, you guessed it, at a table, restaurant, bar, etc. This makes the situation organic, not unprepared. It will require the magician to have a basic understanding and experience with coin handling. If the magician does not the instructional video will teach you all you need to know. All conditions are good ones, just remember to control your audience. The coin(s) are of good quality. As for the trick itself it is all up to the quality of work you put behind it. You can give this to 10 different magicians and get 10 different feeling from this but, if you're a good magician, practice the handling of this trick, it's worth all five stars. This is a good gift for new magicians as well.
SummaryI absolutely love Forge! After playing around with it I have come up with my own handling that is the ending to one of my coin routines. I have been performing it for a few weeks now and the reactions are incredible. It's staying in my set forever!
The coin gaffs are very well made and is very good value for money.
100% recommend Forge to anyone!
