Another Omni effect. It would be great if they tell us what other currencies they have.

https://www.murphysmagic.com/product.aspx?id=64619

Description:

Omni Deck from Palmer's Magic has been a modern classic for card magic.

Imagine that you can now perform the time-tested professional effect with a BORROWED COIN!

Oh, and did we tell you the coin is not only borrowed, but SIGNED?

Yes, you heard us right. You borrow a coin from the spectator, have the spectator sign the coin, and then turn the coin into a beautiful piece of Omni Coin with their name still SIGNED on it.

The best part is that the gimmick is reusable with no refills to buy.

This is a reputation maker with a borrowed and signed object with instant reset, and guaranteed reactions.

What are you waiting for? This is an Omni effect on steroids. Get Omni Coin now!

It shows both a half dollar and quarter on Murphy’s site but I would be shocked if you received both gimmicks for the price in this day and age.
Penguin has it listed but doesn’t give an option to order either one so it’s confusing. It does say “gimmicks” plural, so maybe both are included???
Never ceases to amaze me that the ad copy writers for magic consistently neglect to mention what comes in the box.

Didn't Johnson Magic or Vernet have a really nice looking Kennedy half?

My Transparent effect came out 7 years ago sold by Magic Direct and Alakazam. Since then, I’ve sold coins of different currencies and jumbo omni coins, through magic shops and Blackpool Magic convention.
No one contacted me about this version.

Not sure why they should. Nor do I know why they credit Palmer magic.

It is all based on Boris Zola's "Silver Extraction" from Bobo's Coin Magic, but simplified by removing half the effect.

For years, people who wanted the minted appearance used to heat up a piece of plexi glass in the oven, and then press a coin into it. Made a negative minting, but looked good enough in performance.

Then Fakini made the first commercially available version of Silver Extraction with a minted appearance. The only one (I believe) with express permission from Zola.
Later, Johnson and Vernet came out their versions. Then you, with yours. And now the one in this thread.

I'd totally purchase a morgan style version of this.
Does anyone make them?

No refills surely the spectator would want to keep the coin after the change is made as it would make an excellent souvenir that they would actually keep.

Yes, I'm confused by this effect. You borrow their coin, which they sign. You make it Omni and then what? You keep their coin?

There's a line in the trailer which says "You can keep that". What do they keep? Do you change the Omni coin back to their signed coin?

My thoughts also....if I'm right in thinking how this works then you can't change it back to a signed coin...only an unsigned one...

Well there it is - everything that looked interesting about this in the trailer - spectator signs the coin, “here you can keep that,” etc - isn’t true. Love your charitable question, “maybe they were talking about another effect?” - lol. Thanks for the PSA, David.
