I do not, but would also be interested in hearing more about it.
I never did figure out what his Genesis 4 was, either: http://www.themagiccafe.com/forums/viewt......orum=218

I can't help but wonder if it's some kind of combination of various pieces of his past sets (say, a Trinity + STC), and some stickers.

But I'd enjoy hearing more specifically, perhaps in secret sessions.

The Super CSB should be here Saturday. Other than his demos and his whistles I love his stuff. Usually just figure out my own routines. He's got an odd style for my particular taste. Will post when I get it and work on this weekend!

So I got it and another similar product called JJ's Coin Coalition (at Stevens Magic Emporium). I am so enchanted by the JJ product I have forgotten to look more closely at the Wong item. I will try to get a review of both up here soon. Suffice it to say that at $90 the JJ item is a total winner and I've never seen a better gaff for this price. Take a look at Stevens Magic and if it shows out of stockk - write to them and ask to hold one for you. It's that good! More soon gang!

I also have JJ's coin coalition
Great gaff for the price. The only thin I would change in it is the number 1 in the center of the Chinese coin. No Chinese coin looks like that.

Other than that and that the nature of the design is wafer thin, it's a winner.

Looking forward to your CSB dollar size review

He designed it to resemble the Japanese Yen coins. Those coins have the numbers like on his coin sets.

Thanks for that pic. I showed a friend from Japan the Asian side of the coin and her comment was that she had not seen a 1 yen coin "like that" before. I did not ask why, but it could be because a real 1 yen coin is only about 3/4" and the JJ coin is the size of a morgan dollar coin?

Because I bought a lot of Johnny wong's coin gimmicks, So I spend a liitle time to see his perofrmance of Super CSB.
If your are his regular customer, Then this gimmick is not hard to use the coins you have in hand and combine them for this new set.
Just using one piece of US Half Dollar version DFSTC and one piece of Penny verons DFSTC.
Then you can perform this trick.
