Hey d1...Funny, when you mentioned "Dime & Penny," it reminded me of how I used to fool people all the time with an old, cheap trick called "Perky Penny." Smile It was one of the first coin tricks I ever had (or could afford) Smile as a kid, but it would really fool people. Smile When I got older, I found that the old trick still fooled people badly, plus I was much better at presenting it and making it even more deceptive. Smile

It's a simple one, like the old "Dime & Penny" but like it, it's very deceptive, and can be examined with the right handling. Smile I would think that not many people do it nowadays anymore especially amidst all these greater trick coin effects, but it still rocks if you just want to keep it dirt simple but just as magical. Nice pocket trick! Smile

First off, I love the quote: "Believe in YOU, and you will see the greatest magic that ever was." I may have to re-quote this to my students. Smile

I've never heard of the Perky Penny before, so thank you for bringing it to my attention! It's amazing what these simple little tricks can still do.

I have Sucker Punch and Roy Kuepper's Hopping Halves (Expanded, Half Dollar).
If I were to add to my coin collection, what would you recommend that could have multiple uses? (most bang for the buck).
Magic is a hobby so budget is a concern.
Thank you for your views.


I have Sucker Punch (which I used for practice) and HH (my go-to coin trick, but I add a third Chinese Coin to make it an international routine). This may have already been suggested, but if you're a hobbyist, I'm assuming you have Dime & Penny and Scotch & Soda. If not, those are essential little gems that I still perform often.

I've ventured into higher-priced items (N2, N3 and N4 coins come to mind), but always fall back on the ones I mentioned. I agree that some basic gaffs like C/S (mentioned above) and a Chinatown Half will get you a lot of mileage, but I would argue that "bang for your buck" does not always necessarily equal multiple uses. I've dazzled a room of 150 students with the Dime & Penny. Just my opinion. Smile


Thanks! I ordered a Johnson Dime and Penny. Perhaps combo it with a penetration and card reveal.

I think you have to hand it out to convince people itís not a trick box. (Reminds me of the card box in magic sets). Would love to see or hear about your handling.

Hiya Sophocles... Smile

Believe me, you're golden if they think there's something tricky about the box. Smile

It's an easy old trick to do, and at first as a youngster I could't figure out much beyond the old instructions, which in those days for such a cheap trick, were always very simply put, just enough to explain the trick and "good luck" to you. Smile Or perhaps I just didn't read the directions good enough way back then...who knows? Smile

But when I got a bit older, I understood things a bit better and it was easy enough to take advantage of the sorta built-in misdirection of it to be able to finish clean, where they can check out the coin, washer and of course, the box. Smile

Hello, from cold Norway!

I've been reading.. A lot. And some of the post goes back years, so it's not easy to choose. But I would like some help or input to which direction I should go.

I'm looking for a triple split coin, and it's so many choices. 3CM, Triple Threat, Triple TUC, Johnny Wongs STC/PP3, etc.

I have the TUC and I can do a lot of routines with that and just some s***LD coins, but it's only a Quarter so it's so small. So wanted something more visual like the Eisenhower dollar. So decided that it would make my routines much easier with a triple. So my search started, and never ended.

So I decided to ask here, and someone please tell me if I missed a simelar recent post.


And so K, what did you ever decide on this, and how is it going for you? 😊

It was one of my first buys, and I still have it and use it to this day. Best $5 I ever spent.

Let us know what routine you come up with!

Here is my routine:

Do a card trick with a !@#$** card. Say we'll come back to that in a minute. "Let me show you something else."
Show in one hand a Tic Tac box and in the other the dime & penny. Then bring the box on top of the dime and penny. Act as if you are squeezing.
Lift box to reveal only penny. 1st wow (disappearance). Then turn box to show that a dime is in the box. 2nd wow (penetration). Cover part of box with finger so people only see that there is a dime in the box. Then lift finger to reveal that the dime in the box has the card. 3rd Wow (impossible card reveal).

This is a variation based on Sankey who does this without a penny and as a prediction. Basically, my routine introduces a penny and ignores the prediction part.

A very similar trick is taught on Brian Platt's Catapult DVD set. Utilizes a dime and penny set and the dime penetrates through a Tic Tac box. I purchased Catapult back in 2010, though I donít know how long it was out before that.

Thanks!

Glad to hear it! It's a (minor) classic of magic, for sure, but always produces amazement and fun.

Sounds like a fun routine. If you can record it and share, that would be great!

And thanks for the link to the Sankey routine. I know Sankey gets on some people's nerves, but I enjoy hearing his explanations.

I did it with a poor quality cheap S&S to wife and dad separately. They both liked it. FYI my wife doesnít like magic much so...
Iím now wondering thinking that perhaps I should act like Iím writing something down as a prediction as it may be just too magical (penetration and sudden appearance of named card). I used centavo and if tic tac is filled it conceals it enough. Also you donít really need to seal it like Sankey suggests. Thatís just overkill and Iím not sure it adds anything.

Rough around the edges on his coins, rings, etc. Hate to say it but it is my personal experience. Super Triple is better but I hate the stickers they use. They wear. You get a couple extra but they look like stickers and do not clink right. If you are getting JJ's you don't need the others. OR - if you get ANY of these you will be happy. My vote is JJ and his online tutorial is thorough and well presented.


Who is JJ? How do I get in touch with his coins? Thanks Jim

Yes Flighty, it's a wonderful routine, and an absolute steal. Smile

And yes, John's coins come with a load of unique quality from a really "great guy," as you duly noted. Smile

Any recommendations on published routines with Triple Split Coins? I have a few videos but it would help to slow them down and step through them.
Books and lecture notes would be great!
