I am very interested in these coins. The video implies that these coins will assist a person to perform the one hand 4 coin display or roll down easier.
I have tried to perform the roll down for a year with the Norm Nielsen coins with no success; working everyday for 2 hours. I would be interested to know if anyone has any experience with coins, which have deeper edges then his thin palming coins. At $10.00 a coin, only sold in a set of 4 coins. I would appreciate any feedback anyone has to say.

Ahhh ok I purchased these before they were milled....they are nice and shiny and magnetic. however the coins are very slippery. so much in fact that rolldowns were very very hard. so I sanded the edges which took off the chrome and viola! they gripped nicely. now I see they have these milled edges. just from the pic I bet they grip nicely. only thing I'm not a fan of is their weight....very light....hard to balance on the fingertips....
hope this helps...

I guess you are speaking of the regular Wishing Palming Coins. These are new and only sold as a set of 4 coins. The ones you purchased are probably these: http://themagicwarehouse.com/cgibin/fin......=WISHING COIN This inquiry is about these: http://themagicwarehouse.com/cgibin/fin......=WISHING COIN From the discription the Max Grip may be only 5mm larger then the regular Wishing coins.

I made an error in the number of coins Maximum Grip Coins, it does come with 8 coins for $40, not the 4 I mentioned in the original post.
I know this is not what one would call a 'hot item', but for performing the coin roll downs, they give the performer a little advantage or regular coins. I tried for a solid year to perfect the instant roll down with nielsen coins and could not achieve it. I of couse was using coins from the 1st run, so the edges were thinner then. Now they have some surface on the edge. Any comment is greatly appreciated.

Same here, I tried 10 nielsen coins in one hand roll down one at a time. I can only do it like 50/50 chance of making it work. I don't know maybe I need manipulation lotion or some better coins for this roll down easier. I was wonder is this new corn is the answer to all my problems. I would like someone review it if anyone have it.

Sorry, looks like I posted the wrong Internet reference for the Max Grip Manipulation Wishing Coins by Alan Wong.
Here is the correct reference: http://themagicwarehouse.com/cgibin/fin......word=MAX

For those interested in Coin Manipulation Magic, I found this set of coins at Penguin Magic for $30.00, and that is a nice reductions. The coins are 13/4" in diameter, compared to the Nielsen Coins at 11/2" in diameter. The Wishing Coins come with a cloth coin purse with a zipper and snap closure.
The 'teeth' are sharp even though they are covered with the chrome plating. The size means you will have to streatch your fingers for any coin rolls performed. The Wishing Coins are the same thickness as Nielsen coins. Do to the larger size they will take some getting use to. I think they would have been better if they were made like Nielsen coins of a metal without the chrome plating.
