I'm not sure if that is the right name.

Here's what I'm looking for:

The front of the ] looks like the front of a US coin.

The front of the inner coin looks like the front of the same year coin.

The back of the inner coin looks like the back of that coin.

The ] and inner coin lock together magnetically.

So, when the two halves are joined, you wind up with what would appear (even under examination by a spectator) to be a single coin.

I don't know if I'm allowed to say the trick, so I'll just say that I've seen something sort of like this with a Euro coin.

What I want to know if is there is any denomination of US coin which has something like this.

Thanks,
Bart

Look at Triple Threat by Todd Lassen or 3CM by Jamie Schoolcraft. Although this is a magnetic DOUBLE ]. I have played with both and they can not withstand close examination by a spec.

I think you may be referring to the TUC.. there is a giant thread on it on the front page of this sub forum. I do however, prefer TT or 3CM over a TUC. I still don't quite understand why TUCs are so popular, but you can look into it.

The Ambivalence is such a coin. When nested it can be handled by a spectator and not discovered. The TT, 3CM or TUC cannot be examined by a spectator.

Definitely a TUC (Tango Ultimate Coin) comes in US denominations from US Quarter to Kennedy and Walking Liberty Halves to Ike and Morgan Dollars (and those are just the single coin versions) (none are cheap but they are worth every penny when you realize what all you can do with them) http://www.penguinmagic.com/search.php?q=tuc there is a quick link to get you started.
