Topic: Triple Coins.
Message: Posted by: EasyK (Apr 11, 2018 04:59PM)
Hello, from cold Norway!

I've been reading.. A lot. And some of the post goes back years, so it's not easy to choose. But I would like some help or input to which direction I should go.

I'm looking for a triple split coin, and it's so many choices. 3CM, Triple Threat, Triple TUC, Johnny Wongs STC/PP3, etc.

I have the TUC and I can do a lot of routines with that and just some s***LD coins, but it's only a Quarter so it's so small. So wanted something more visual like the Eisenhower dollar. So decided that it would make my routines much easier with a triple. So my search started, and never ended.

So I decided to ask here, and someone please tell me if I missed a simelar recent post.

Thanks for the tips. I was looking on the Casino Split by JJ. Is it same principle but with casino chip instead of 1 yen?

While they can go from "1" to "3", the Triple Threat, 3CM, and Triple TUC are not split coins.
Message: Posted by: EasyK (Apr 13, 2018 10:08AM)
I may have said the wrong term but I mean generally coins that go from 1 to 3. Split or sh***s or simelar. But after reading a bit more I decided to go for JJs Casino Split, a LDR wallet and just some regular Eisenhowers and a few extras. Looking forward to bring them with me out. A bit more flashy and bigger than my quarters and CSB set.

I always wanted a Todd Lassen set of some kind but I've heard he is a bit busy at the moment so.. Maybe in the future 😊

No. A TUC is it's own thing.... I'm not aware of anything else available that is made like it.
That said, it lends itself to many similar routines - 3-flys, matrix, etc.

My TUC is mine and the TRIPLE TUC is my new daughter, sincerely I don't know the others, but you can be sure my TUC is a totally new concept in coin magic.
I will lecturing in Fantasma Magic in NYC May 4th, see you there!

I prefer Roy Kueppers ďTransient CoinsĒ in Ikeís.
Triple TUC was OK. But the Fly Is smoother with Transient Coins.

I have to agree here, this is my favorite set too. :)

The overall craftsmanship, functionality and evolution of these coins is unparalleled to date in this genre of coin magic.

I was thinking of getting Triad coins or Triple TUC. How does jj coin coalition compare to those two?
Message: Posted by: StarManager (Jun 25, 2018 11:26AM)
Triad was good in its day. Triple TUC has more use than JJ for me but JJ as a single effect is super strong.

MB217, whom I have immense respect for, I'm sure will add his thoughts that JJ is awesome too. To me it is a factor of utility and the Triple TUC is vastly useable in many ways. Just don';t pay your rent and get both?
Message: Posted by: Magikgym (Jun 25, 2018 02:37PM)
Thank you both for your input. I'm looking to do 3 fly, coins across and 3 coin production and vanishes. I guess that can be accomplished with all 3.

The 3T (Triple Threat) book is really valuable for anyone who has or gets the Todd Lassen 3T. Just got got another one delivered today. I have the originals in uncirc but wanted a well worn one too. WOW there is no craftsman matching Todd today folks. Can't see a gaff with three nested coins or two - front or back. Third coin is not thin but solid and milled edges. All locks mag. Can ditch to mag. Fantastic craftsmanship. Slippery smooth and silent. David is wildly creative and really adds thinking to the T3. Mark describes the moves really well. Get it!

Sorry buddy I donít possess the Triple TUC so canít comment. I bought JJís to perform a quick production, transposition and vanish sequence suitable as an intro to a table really - so not for multiple different routines as I use other methods for these so I guess itís what you are going to use it for that counts, and also the performing environment too - for example, I wouldnít perform JJís surrounded (like most 3 Fly routines as well)

They have just ordered another 50 from me, so should be shipped out in about a week as I'm waiting for materials. A great addition to anyone, in particular, who wears a jacket whilst performing and wants to be able to switch in and switch out gimmicks etc. Thanks for your support guys!

I don't wear a formal or sports jacket but secret servante works excellent with a opened zippered hoodie for me with p***ets of course. It falls at just the right height. It even worked well with a windbreaker type jacket.

Good info! I wanted to get one after MB talked it up a bit! But I don't wear a jacket. I do wear longer shirts and a belt tho!

Dollarbill - I often use mine even without a belt when I have none. The only visible thing is the outside mag on the shirt. I just used a sharpie and made it black instead of silver and then wear it more to the back then right on my left and right. Closer to where a back pocket would be. Holds like a champ even fully loaded. Invisible from 270 degrees in front. People behind would think it is a button. Brilliant device. I love how it holds one or four dollars and automatically adjusts tension. Fantastic buy!

Message: Posted by: StarManager (Aug 14, 2018 07:56PM)
I am not a fan of Ray's coins. (Transient) He's creative but to me all his work looks like it came out of a machine shop. Rough around the edges on his coins, rings, etc. Hate to say it but it is my personal experience. Super Triple is better but I hate the stickers they use. They wear. You get a couple extra but they look like stickers and do not clink right. If you are getting JJ's you don't need the others. OR - if you get ANY of these you will be happy. My vote is JJ and his online tutorial is thorough and well presented.

One of the most respected contributors to the coin world on this (or any) board is MB217. I believe his hands down choice is also stated as JJ's. If you like IKE Dollars JJ has the Casino in those for $100. I'm a Morgan guy and love that he used really great replicas. Good luck!
Message: Posted by: donny (Aug 23, 2018 04:41AM)
Produce 3 (reaction), transform all three (big reaction), then vanish all (reaction). So good! Move one to the next thing.
JJ's coins look like Magician toys to me (and I don't "gamble theme"). I won't use them. *don't care who endorses them.
Triple TUC is wonky. Doesn't look clean (from side), requires more "finesse" (doesn't play well w/ other TUCs) and doesn't give you the kicker-change.
Hobbyist Opinion. Your mileage may vary.

Well, besides a "Triple Split Coin," you might look into something like a C/S coin...Whole lot of magic in such a simple little coin, and it won't blow your budget. ;)

I have Sucker Punch (which I used for practice) and HH (my go-to coin trick, but I add a third Chinese Coin to make it an international routine). This may have already been suggested, but if you're a hobbyist, I'm assuming you have Dime & Penny and Scotch & Soda. If not, those are essential little gems that I still perform often.

I've ventured into higher-priced items (N2, N3 and N4 coins come to mind), but always fall back on the ones I mentioned. I agree that some basic gaffs like C/S (mentioned above) and a Chinatown Half will get you a lot of mileage, but I would argue that "bang for your buck" does not always necessarily equal multiple uses. I've dazzled a room of 150 students with the Dime & Penny. Just my opinion. :)

Hey d1...Funny, when you mentioned "Dime & Penny," it reminded me of how I used to fool people all the time with an old, cheap trick called "Perky Penny." :D It was one of the first coin tricks I ever had (or could afford) :D as a kid, but it would really fool people. :) When I got older, I found that the old trick still fooled people badly, plus I was much better at presenting it and making it even more deceptive. ;)

It's a simple one, like the old "Dime & Penny" but like it, it's very deceptive, and can be examined with the right handling. ;) I would think that not many people do it nowadays anymore especially amidst all these greater trick coin effects, but it still rocks if you just want to keep it dirt simple but just as magical. Nice pocket trick! :)

First off, I love the quote: "Believe in YOU, and you will see the greatest magic that ever was." I may have to re-quote this to my students. :)

I've never heard of the Perky Penny before, so thank you for bringing it to my attention! It's amazing what these simple little tricks can still do.

I think you have to hand it out to convince people itís not a trick box. (Reminds me of the card box in magic sets). Would love to see or hear about your handling.
Message: Posted by: Mb217 (Jan 15, 2019 12:28PM)
Hiya Sophocles... :)

Believe me, you're golden if they think there's something tricky about the box. :D

It's an easy old trick to do, and at first as a youngster I could't figure out much beyond the old instructions, which in those days for such a cheap trick, were always very simply put, just enough to explain the trick and "good luck" to you. :D Or perhaps I just didn't read the directions good enough way back then...who knows? :D

But when I got a bit older, I understood things a bit better and it was easy enough to take advantage of the sorta built-in misdirection of it to be able to finish clean, where they can check out the coin, washer and of course, the box. ;)

*Sent you a PM.

Let us know what routine you come up with!

Here is my routine:

Do a card trick with a !@#$** card. Say we'll come back to that in a minute. "Let me show you something else."
Show in one hand a Tic Tac box and in the other the dime & penny. Then bring the box on top of the dime and penny. Act as if you are squeezing.
Lift box to reveal only penny. 1st wow (disappearance). Then turn box to show that a dime is in the box. 2nd wow (penetration). Cover part of box with finger so people only see that there is a dime in the box. Then lift finger to reveal that the dime in the box has the card. 3rd Wow (impossible card reveal).

This is a variation based on Sankey who does this without a penny and as a prediction. Basically, my routine introduces a penny and ignores the prediction part.

A very similar trick is taught on Brian Platt's Catapult DVD set. Utilizes a dime and penny set and the dime penetrates through a Tic Tac box. I purchased Catapult back in 2010, though I donít know how long it was out before that.

Thanks!

Glad to hear it! It's a (minor) classic of magic, for sure, but always produces amazement and fun.

Sounds like a fun routine. If you can record it and share, that would be great!

And thanks for the link to the Sankey routine. I know Sankey gets on some people's nerves, but I enjoy hearing his explanations.

I did it with a poor quality cheap S&S to wife and dad separately. They both liked it. FYI my wife doesnít like magic much so...
Iím now wondering thinking that perhaps I should act like Iím writing something down as a prediction as it may be just too magical (penetration and sudden appearance of named card). I used centavo and if tic tac is filled it conceals it enough. Also you donít really need to seal it like Sankey suggests. Thatís just overkill and Iím not sure it adds anything.

You get a couple extra but they look like stickers and do not clink right. If you are getting JJ's you don't need the others. OR - if you get ANY of these you will be happy. My vote is JJ and his online tutorial is thorough and well presented. [/quote]

Who is JJ? How do I get in touch with his coins? Thanks Jim

Hi name is John Jurney. A magician and CNC Engineer so he can fabricate his coins on expensive, computer controlled machines. Great guy.

Simplymagicweb, your video using JJ's coins. Whose routine is that John's? yours? A mix? I really enjoyed it, BTW.

Yes Flighty, it's a wonderful routine, and an absolute steal. ;)

And yes, John's coins come with a load of unique quality from a really "great guy," as you duly noted. :)

Any recommendations on published routines with Triple Split Coins? I have a few videos but it would help to slow them down and step through them.
Books and lecture notes would be great!

Simplymagicweb /Sean.... really love your video and routine. Do you teach the "magic moving pillow" :25 seconds into your routine? ;)

Hi Glenn - sadly not my friend, some moves are to be kept underground, innit!

Ok, I learned something new. I had to look up "innit". At first I thought it was an acronym, like "IMHO", then I found it was a British contraction. I've been to the UK a few times and never ran into that! I love language.

Innit and dya no wat I meen are essential street magicians lingo, ideally to be used in conjunction with the oscillating pillow illusion.
Message: Posted by: FlightRisk (May 8, 2019 08:58PM)
ROFL. Well, I believe the original oscillating pillow illusion dates back to Indian Fakirs performing it for spice traders in the mid 1700's. I was told this by Pop Haydn when he invited me to the exclusive sauna room in the secret basement of the magic castle.

As far as splits, keep in mind of what you want to accomplish. For single sided, Greg wilsonís is my go to (his replicas are beautiful and he uses earth magnets compared to say the original Johnny Wong version). As far as triple nests...I own both a 3cmx and a triple threat. I love them both and I prefer the Lassen triple over the 3cmx. But either are wonderful options.
