Hey guys,

I know it is already a bit late for this topic, but now that we are spending some much of time in house let's open this discussion :)
Which are your top 3 coin releases for 2019?

I haven't purchased any other products this year, but Sick 2 was a massive improvement in quality compared to Sick 1.

Both in terms of routines and the production. Having a voiceover while Ponta explains the details of what he's doing is way better than the first Sick release.
Although I have his first release, it wasn't until Sick 2 that I actually started to practice and use the undercover spread. He gives a good explanation on how to get into the move and also some finer tips that proved extremely useful.

Don't have top 2 or 3 for 2019. But Sick 2 was a great purchase.

Then let me mention two more great coin releases for 2019, one video and one book:

Emerald by Rall, released by The Impossible Co. like Sick 2
Giacomo Bertini's System for Amazement by Stephen Minch

Thanks,
Oscar

Jeremiah Zuo has a move called 'The Drop'.

He does the move superbly plus does some great routine utilizing it.
It looks awesome on video and I've been debating for ages on ordering

Has anybody here got the move down pat and how hard is it to pull off?

Sorry to side track.

Back to subject, my best Coin Buy 2019 was Danny Copelands "Insights". I learned to do "the Fingertip fling' which I love and use. Plus lots of other stuff I'm still playing with :-)

I guess you are referring to Danny Goldsmith...

I purchased System for Amazement by Giacomo Bertini and it has been so much fun to work through. I'm pretty early on in my coin handling journey, however, this has been giving me a really strong foundation and helping me learn a lot of things that have really helped. Overall the pictures and descriptions are so well put together that I think this book would be perfect for anyone wanting to learn coin magic.

Kozmo over at ReelMagic.com ($5 bucks a month. Best deal in Magic) has Bertinis book for $65. Even if you only sign up for one month. $.02

Thank you very much draupnir!
I am very happy that you have hit the precise essential point:
my central goal was to build a complete coin system, which anyone can use to learn from scratch and manage any coinmagic, without the need to learn anything else. Stephen Minch was perfectly successful in writing and making my book. So with my book you can learn coinmagic from scratch even if you've never worked on it

Giacomo, I've been interested in the book as well. So the book is structured for a beginner to work through?

I'm pretty sure you were/are wrong on that. With Reel Magic sale(rebates) you pay full price - $80 in this case and your "Rebate" (the $15) is given as credit on you next 3 months price @ $5 per month subscription payment. You really do save $15, you just have to remain a member for the next three months to benefit (and really, why wouldn't you for all that content at only $5 a month)? In the end, you cannot just sign up for one month. You would have to stay for 3 more (although free with rebate credit) o get full advantage.

Though I didnít get it last year, when I returned to magic a couple of months ago I began re learning Giacomoís fine coin art.

I am also doing basic drills with coins.

If you wouldn't mind, what are the drills you do?
Message: Posted by: harris (Jun 15, 2020 08:45AM)
Practicing moves with both hands.
Doing sleights with 1, 2 or 3 coins in CP
Playing ukulele _________________ in Cp.
Moving 1 to 3 coins around to different positions silently.
Play & discover. ( usually things others have already uncovered)

TheGladsomeBeast,

Do the routines in this book require gaffs? If so, can you let me know which gaffs? (PM me if you prefer) Thanks!

I also wondered this Roberto. The book does sound great!!

I wrote to Jeremiah and asked about whether the routines in his digital book, "Institutes of a Coin Magic Fan", require any gaffs. He responded with the following:

"Hi Roberto, In general the material requires no gaffs. A couple routines use an expanded shell."

I'll be purchasing this soon.
