I haven't been able to get any images to post. How do people do it?

This site has strict limitations on both image dimensions and file size.
Your best bet is to upload them to an image site like IMGUR, then use "bbcode" to embed a link reference to your image(s).

Here's a couple coins, that are not only lovely, but practical as I actually use them in my performances.

Yes, they are BIG (2" or 5cm...put beside a US dollar so you can compare), and it does take some work to learn to handle these.....but the visual benefit for a working performer makes it IMHO worthwhile.

Also while they are expensive (silver), they do retain a lot of their value, so unlike many magic props, can always be sold for at least their value in silver.

I own the bottom one of these now and am still considering the top one- it's on my watch list at the moment for a pretty good price. I was on ebay last night and bought a few things for my barnyard routine or full length show, even. Smile I did a little work a few years ago on the portable hole... with sheep! There's just so much you can do and with such beautiful props, the more the merrier! Working on it, along with my wildlife act.

Saved some stuff onto my watch list last night and just finished going through it and buying a few more. Would you like to see what I picked up?

Invisticone mentioned the Niue Turtle and I have to agree that is absolutely gorgeous. I love it colored and its probably one of my favorite designs period.

I also really like the gold and silver eagle coins. I am trying hard to see how I can use the silver eagle in my magic because I love how it looks.

Thank you for posting, Thomas. I find it a lot of fun to consider presentations for my coin collection, and those I'm thinking about adding to it. Smile

I've got some lovely unique coins to show off. Annoyingly, BBcode won't allow me to link an image from my google photos...

I love that coins tell a story. Not just because or their metal or age, but because of their design. I created a fun coins across routine with commemorative half dollars using bears. Other bear coins also available. But coins with deer can be used to tell a story about deer crossing. Ships sail. Birds fly. Kangaroos hop. Chickens cross the road. So much can be done, and the beauty of the coins only serve to create a greater interest in your routine, as it is no longer just about the coins, but the story they tell..

It might not let you embed the image, but you can still just put in the address, and then folks can follow the link on their own...
