Any of you busy magicians ever used the Jumbo Magnetic Half and care to comment on its strengths and weaknesses for a prospective buyer? Specifically, is the magnetic gimmick strong to hold it, say, on the inside of a sport coat without fear of it dislodging as a performer moves around during a performance but weak enough to be easily dislodged for production without tugging on the coin and ruffling the coat? Any help/thoughts will be greatly appreciated.

Magical things to you and yours.

I would guess that the magnet would clip on the pant belt. This way it is hidden with the coat edge.
Close up coin magic.

Okito box clip.

Nonvpro,

If you mean where the jumbo magnetic coin can be found, you can go to Magic4Less.com and find the most reasonable price ($93.56), followed by Penguin.com at around $102. Hank Lee also carries the item, as well as some European distributors. Go to google and type in the item, and you will find outlets for it with no trouble.

Happy trails,
Zipper

Or get a jumbo coin and superglue a rare-earth magnet to one side near the rim. This magnet can be covered with a finger when displaying the coin. Cost: About $8 tops.

Cheers,
Jerry

Thanks for the cost-cutting suggestion (and I will certainly think on it). One problem is I'd probably superglue my finger to the coin, which would make it harder to perform the effect. The second problem is that, at least from photos of Corridin's coin, it resembles a real half dollar when other jumbo coins do not (at least in my opinion).

Best,
Zipper
