Hi !!!

Here a new trick from our Company .

Some visual effects will always remain in the spectator's mind. Printing Coins is an example of this.
Ariel Carax delights us with this innovative and clever work of art. A visual and innovative effect you will definitely include in your pro repertoire or in your occasional performance.
The magician puts a pencil, a coin -you may borrow one from the audience-, and a sheet of paper on the table. He puts the sheet of paper on top of the coin and rubs the pencil on it thus making the coin printed on the sheet of paper. The magician prints the coin several times on the whole sheet. He then raises the sheet of paper and shows that the coin has been multiplied into as many coins as the number of rubbings made. The coins, the sheet of paper and pencil are showed and given away to the audience.
Besides, a DVD attached includes a visual and emotional introduction of the Printing Coins.

A perfect and impressive opener (introductory effect).
Very easy to do.
Easy and quick reset.
Quickly repeated.
You may perform it standing or sitting at a table or on the floor.
No manipulation or palming.
No need to discard anything. No sleeves or lap required.
At the end, all the items used may be given away to the audience or showed for their examination.
Use any type of coin, even a borrowed one: Half dollar, 2 euro, 2 pounds, peso, etc.
A gimmick and an English/Spanish explanatory DVD are included.

Watch the video on: http://youtu.be/7l6SjMUmt98

Ready for ship on August 25 2011.

I love the concept!
Sort of like grave stone rubbings.
Are you limited to four coins or can you do more?
There was a time I had the blues,

the reason was I had no shoes.

Until I met upon the street

a man who had no feet.

What about noise? It seems one may need a soft surface to perform this.

Hi
Thanks for your opinion.
You can print to 4 coins plus initial coins. But if you can use SH... so you can print 5,6,7, or 8 coins....
work fine with half dollar , 2 euros or similar size coins.
You can perfom it with any close up ,carpet over a book. The most increible that is the trick is very easy to do. Is possible use Chocolate coins too,

I like this one! I had my reservations about it, but once I used it, all my doubts disappeared! My favorite use is to print one coin at a time, tearing the piece out, and sliding it to the corner. Do the same for the others. Now you have a clean matrix reveal! You can even use a 3" jumbo coin as a final reveal! I have played with autographing the pieces, stapling it to my business card to hand out, etc. I love the story telling and relating to one's own childhood. To me this one is a keeper.

Another thing I like doing is having them shade a coin and initial it. Even better keepsake!

With the chocolate coins, you can easily weave a story about grandma, or snacks, with a jumbo Hershey's kiss as a giant reveal. "I must have been loved, why look at all the kisses I got!"

I recently obtained this and tried it out at my restaurant gig. Where so many effects are variations on common themes, this one is quite unique - at least to me. I like it because it's different and can be quite effective with a good patter. Here’s a quick review:

EFFECT: You create the illusion of being able to create multiple coins by repeatedly "tracing" the same coin. With the coin under a piece of paper, you get the image by rubbing a pencil over it. You move the coin around to create several of these images. When finished, you reveal that a coin has been created under each rubbing - up to 5 in all.

The notepad supplied is quite clever in making it appear that there is nothing under the paper to start and all you have is the one coin. You supply the coins as they are not gaffed. It works well with half dollars or other coins of similar size.

PROS: It's different, and you can tell a story of how you liked to print coins when you were a kid by tracing them on paper - and would pretend that they were real. It engages the spectator. It's not for walkaround, but can be used for close-up or table-side. It could be used to introduce coins for another routine. The gaff is durable and the notepad can be easily replaced when used up.

CONS: It might be a little pricey to some, but it is well made. For restaurant work, it’s too large for a pocket, but OK if you have a bag or don’t mind carrying it. You also need a small close-up pad/mat to keep the coins from talking.

DIFFICULTY: Can be done with little practice. No actual “slights” are used.

To sum up – I like it because it’s different, and my customers seem enchanted by it. I don’t like carrying to many things around, but this is not too big or heavy. The notepad is 6 x 8 inches, but you could use one a little smaller. If you vanish coins already, then that would be a nice way to tag an ending on to the magical printing. I rub the coins back into the rubbings. There could be lots of variations in how to use this as part of a routine.

Nice review Dennis!

I've owned this for some time now and wanted to give it a little time before writing a review. Dennis has really nailed it by adding a story of tracing coins on a piece of paper when you were a kid. I love the story line. The pad has a built in gimmick that is made to last for a life time. It is so easy to transfer the gimmick to any other pad,book, magazine, you name it. You can hold the pad freely without any concern of noise or dropping coins. At your command the coins will release in perfect position for the routine presented. Before I watched the video, I thought to myself, this would be a great opener for the matrix trick. After watching the video they suggest this as a possible use. A very cool way to introduce coins!

I feel this is much more than a printing coins routine. Consider this a utility device for coins. I would love to see a competition or a forum opened to owners of this to explore potential uses. IMHO, the current presentation does not speak to the potential this has. If you own this PM me so we can discuss devious uses for this very well constructed gimmick. Lot's of thought went into this and I believe this can be used for many more applications.

I love Bazar de Magia. I've been a fan of their products and this has some great potential. The price is not too high for what you get. The only CON is your imagination to how best use this device! Oh... it's super easy to use!
