Topic: Coin with 2 heads / tails

I have a 2 headed nickel and was wondering if there are any magic tricks that use a coin like that. Looking to get more out of it than just a rigged toss.

Thanks very much for any help.

In the (great) book written by Stephen Minch called Spectacle, there is a mental magic effect by Ray Grismer titled The Janus Predictions. It's a nice multi-phase routine and uses the double nickel in a very devious way. I realize that buying a book for one thing might seem excessive but in this case, the book is full of great card, coin, and other close up magic!

Vlad - thanks very much for the info on the Stephen Minch book. Never heard of it before. I just read up on it and it definitely looks like it has a lot of strong material, including the effect using the double sided coins. I'm adding it to my wish list!

Take care.
