I know, you think that you'll never make such a silly mistake and then you meet some friends for an evening. Do some tricks, hava a few drinks and a lot of laughs, then you get home and your heart sinks. Go into panic mode and tear thru all your pockets and the seats of your car, and then wish you could just go back in time a few hours.
Sometimes it's not just the monetary loss, but a cool custom gaff could take months to replace.
So there's a definite advantage to using only gaffed Morgans, Walkers, or Foreign coins.

Been there.

HA HA...

These horror stories ring so true to me as well...

I think I've lost about 4 special coins over the years. Again, all on nights out where I've had to dump the coins quick in my pocket to make a switch... Then I get home, tip my wallet upside down and go through every single coin in there praying the special one is still in there.....

Yep, deffo getting the American version. 100 percent.

I have only lost one gaffed coin over the years - a TUC quarter. ANd I'm pretty sure that it's still around here somewhere...

I used to love doing Coin Unique, but after spending my third set by mistake, I quit. Just too expensive. This, however, looks wonderful. And presumably, you couldn't spend the gimmicks accidentally, because they'll be stuck together in your pocket, no?

Yes, they do stick together.

Would still keep them separate though.
I'm considering retiring from the Magic Café when I reach 3,000 posts.

I absolutely ADORE the look of this effect. I received mine in the mail today and I've been messing around with it for a few hours.

As of right now, the tension on my flipper is so strong that when opened and set down, the coin is snapping closed or tenting up dramatically instead of laying flat. I'll work the thread in a bit (and replace it, in a worst case scenario) and report back!


If you have the deluxe version there is a very easy permanent fix for this problem that Mark showed me to get the coins to lay flat something which was difficult with the origanal set . I thought it was on the dvd. I don't want to say to much on here so send me a message if you are interested

I have the same issue, trying to work it in so that they will work properly. Do you mind if I PM you for the fix as well?

I bought the £2 version recently and love the effect. I wouldn't be confident in handing out the principal coin for inspection as the c** across the face is quite obvious. Is this normal or could mine be defective?
