I also own a full heap of coins of different denominations which figures 50 to 60 coins dropped on to a table. I bought it from an antique dealer but it's a gaff for the weight is much lighter than a similar quantity of coins put together.

In the Siamese coin family there have been routines using welded coins for matrix (three coins) or routines by Troy Hooser (three coins as well) and, many moons ago, I made a coin fan of six welded coins for appearance at the fingertips (I still use them as a replacement to a Jumbo coin for a climax: great effect at the end of any routine using only one or two coins.) I also toyed with a special Siamese coins set where the lower coin was a flipper but didn't get as much results as with the lower coin being a [.

We didn't mention Jumbo coins (with or without [, whether occidental or allegedly Chinese)

I didn't mean to imply that old folks need to make gaffs to get by, just that there are things out there that are being held secret which will be unveiled when the creators think they should be made available.

"Everything that can be invented has been invented."
Charles H. Duell, U.S. Commissioner of Patents, in 1899.

Turns out the quote abote is not actual and could never be traced back to any one in the patent office.

How about a Slippery Sam?


You mean the Slippery Sam Combination Coin set sold by Steve Dusheck... I wish he would either make them again or grant license to someone to make the sets again. Bob Elliot showed the two coin fingertips transposition around back in 1978 or so and the item was a big seller. The slider alone was the gaffus for us Ultimate Copper and Silver transposition item - which is in his lecture DVD and still available.

I had a handfull of pennies glued together with a little chain on the back so you could "rattle" them, along with a hook, for a nice quick vanish of a handfull of pennies.

Again, any one pre-date me on swivel pin shell? Allows you to show a "fan" of two coins and toss into glass or air and it comes down as one coin.

What about the gaff of gaffs. The one coin gaff no magician should ever be without. The one with so many uses.............the squirting nickel!

Sasco sold a coin effect of mine, called the Carnage Coin, it was a combination of a squirting nickel and a floor nickel. Floor Nickle was seemingly slapped/ driven into your forehead. THe blood from the squirting nickle helped the illusion along.

How about that production coin with the finger clip, Balancing/Spinning Coin, now-u-c-it coin, and fickle nickle. Oh Yeah, and what ever you call the two coins connected by a monofilament.

I have a Kennedy Halfdollar, 1964, with a tiny loop attached to the edge. A elastic string is attached to a safety pin.
Works excellent, very easy to vanish this coin up into the sleeve. A selfworking one-handed vanish is possible.

But, I can´t remember where I bought it. Maybe a gift from the past...

I wish someone could invent a gaffed moving coin that moves/slides on the table in every direction!
The moving coin should work on any table. I think its possible to invent a coin like that in the future. If that happens, then this coin should be a bestseller.

What about post coins? Shell-like, but not quite the same?

Shaved/remilled coins -- e.g. an English Penny that can fit in a half dollar shell...

There's a whole bunch of stuff designed by Steve Dusheck such as Lethal Tender, which in its proper form is NOT a shell.

Is Coin Unique just a special variant of a shell and a C/S coin?

Technically this set is a combination of already listed items.
Much in the way that a Cerberus is "just" a variation of a TT, or a combo of shells and a C/S. "Just" in quotes because you can't change one coin into another using the TT.
