Hi,

Picked this up in and amongst a variety of items in a lot.

Does anyone know anything about it, what it's called, uses, history etc.

TIA

Looks like nickles to dimes to me. You put a stack of dimes inside the stack, cover the stack of "Nickles" and lift to reveal the nickles changing into dimes.

Yeah, I saw those sets too and could see the obvious similarity.

However, this is an English set, and also consists of another lid/ cap.

I wondered if anyone knew specifically where this set came from, or had any more information.

The larger 'coins' are old 5 pence pieces that are out of circulation.
The smaller coins are the current 5 pence pieces in use today

Wasn’t there a marketed effect called “Dynamic Coins” or something like that, which consisted of a *pair* of brass caps and hollow coin stacks — and in quarter size, not nickel sized —and which actually showed and used the bang ring as part of the effect itself (rather than it being just a secret utility device)?

Maybe this is something similar.
For a supernatural chiller mixing magic (prestidigitation, legerdemain) with Magic (occultism, mysticism), check out my novel MAGIC: AN OCCULT THRILLER at http://www.amazon.com/Magic-Occult-Thriller-Reed-Hall/dp/1453874836
