I was in London yesterday, and on a whim picked up this item from Marvins store in Hamleys, Regent Street. I have been playing with card magic for a while, and with a bus journey ahead of me though it might be a fun diversion to learn something with coins. Trick now learnt.
My question, if I am allowed to ask it, is what type of box is this? I love the trick, love the concept, and would like to do more, but don't want to replicate the kit by now buying an Okito Box, Boston Box, or whatever, and finding that they are the same, but under a different name.
I will be equally satisfied by a reply that says - 'go ahead and get the other types of box: they're different and great'.
Thanks,
Jay

Jay,

Welcome to the Café.

Okito and Boston boxes are not the same as the ones you received with Dynamic Coins.
There are a lot more possibilities with them.

Right, so now that I have started down this line of interest... I've immediately stumbled upon another box type. Are there others (i.e. working on a different principle rather than being proprietary names or anything like that?)

My list goes:
Dynamic Coins
Okito Box
Boston Box
Zambini Box

(Obviously I'm not asking for detail on how they work - this ain't the place - but some guidance on what to look out for would be grand, so it would.)

Ta,

Jay

If you are getting into coins you should get the Bobo book.
By failing to prepare, we are preparing to fail.

Jay Store, you should know that Dynamic Coins - while a great trick - is primarily self-working. A coin box is not, and takes a lot of practice to master no matter which model. It's not difficult if you compare it to some of the more complicated coin magic sleights, but it is hardly self-working.
Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain.

Thanks for the advice - quite happy with the need to practice; and acknowledge that Bobo is the place to go. Ta, J

I had a lot of fun with Spellbinding Nest of Boxes when I started back in magic. I used a signed coin and a piece of flash paper lots of fun The one issue I find with these types of things is the reason to have them. Why are you carrying that wooden box with you?

But do have fun and get creative you might also want to look at nesting wallets.
Enjoy your magic,

and let others enjoy it as well!

Dynamic Coins is based on Nickles to Dimes but instead of using one cylinder, it uses two.

If the original poster ends up going the coin box route, they can be passed off as antique pill boxes that so happen to be the perfect size for carrying a few special coins.
