Topic: Kunard Koins

Does anyone remember Kunard Koins? two small blocks of wood (approx.1" x 1" x 1/2")with a piece of green baise on one side of each. A small coin (6d in the UK)was placed on one block, the other block was passed over the coin which promptly vanished.

Are they still available? Google has no information!

Thanks.

In the U.K. Alan Warner once manufactured this apparatus.

Thanks, Julie, I had a set many years (over fifty!) ago. I can't remember who produced them but think it would be before Alan Warner. However, a set made by him would be a rather classy prop!

Thanks for your interest.

Hi Leslie

We have a set from Alan Warner and it is nice. (Although you are no doubt correct that other manufactures most likely would offer a comparable item at a far lower price.)
