I got it and I love it! Quality is top notch. URL for the video instructions isn't working yet, but most of us know what to do and there is written, illustrated instructions. It's pretty sweet and simple. In Midas you pull a pocket full of change out and find a special gold penny (plated with 24k gold). You take the gold "Midas" penny and set it in your palm. Then you take a quarter from your change and set it next to the gold penny. Close your hand and then reopen. The legend of Midas has now turned the quarter to gold (also 24k gold plated).

Next, you explain you can do this with dimes too. You pull a dime from your pocket, put it in your hand with the penny, close your fingers around the coins and reopen. They are both gold!

Best part is, the audience can take them right out of your open palm and inspect them. As was stated in an earlier post you can even give them the gold dime if you'd like (as Martinka says they will be selling them soon).

Really nice piece of magic that is easy to learn. I was able to perform it for family in less than 10 minutes (though it is always better to practice longer of course). Really happy with this one! Great job folks! Smile

Very satisfied with the Martinka release #3. This is my favorite so far. I like the simple visual changes and for me it's simply fun. Definitely will order additional dimes too.

Still waiting to receive mine and no shipping notice yet.
I'm always one of the last to receive each new effect.
I should've signed up sooner Smile

Last time I checked the video still wasn't up yet. There are a few things in the instructions that can be kind of confusing, like when they tell you to put "one of the dimes" under a coin. It can't just be "one of the dimes". It has to be a certain dime Smile But like MagiChrisMitch so perfectly stated.....it's fun!

Now I am counting down the clock to the next one!

Dooblehorn is right, the videos (3 of them) are now available. And if you're curious, a bag of 12 gold plated dimes will cost you about 20.00. Not a bad little investment that allows you to give away the gold dime after the trick. Genius!

You'll find the link to the extra dimes by clicking video one and reading the description. Thanks Martinka Coin Club. I'm an instant fan!

Twenty 24KT gold plated dimes are available on ebay for $8.95.

Looks like number 4 is two weeks out. Called KFC and Martinka claims this is the most versatile release thus far.

Maybe 2 weeks out for you Eric.
I just got shipping notice for Midas. Smile

What would a fast food chicken restaurant know about coin gaffs anyway?

Not sure why I always get mine so quickly. Wonder how many people signed up. I guess I must have been one of the first to sign up.

I would say you were certainly the first to sign up as far as people who post regularly here on the Café.
But no hard feelings from me, you earned your spot at the front of the line by being willing to take the plunge so quickly.
I had cold feet for too long.
Besides I still get mine the same time apart as you get yours. And none of us would even be aware of any delay if it weren't for this dang Café.

If nothing else, I'm impressed that Martinka has been able to live up to its promise to deliver gaffs that have never been seen before. Truly impressive.

Midas may be my favorite one so far.
My only complaint is it would have been nice if they had included a gold quarter in the set.
Not only could you have handed it out but it also would have opened up the possibility of segueing into other follow up effects using the quarter.

I checked on line and found several places that will sell you a gold dipped quarter. You might even be able to get them from Martinka. A gold quarter would be an excellent addition to their Midas!

Anybody received the next release yet? Sounds like it's going to be a good one too!
