Beautiful, but I don't get the "no sleight of hand" claim. Some action happens of which the audience is unaware - a sleight.
Even if you are just manipulating or ditching a gaff, that is still a sleight.

I'd agree with that funsway. I do a nice simple CSB routine, and although it's pretty easy, it definitely wouldn't be accurate to say it's sleight free.

Maybe there are tricks using a stooge.

And if your stooge can do sleight-of-hand...even better.

Seriously, one can do a mental trick, a prediction, using Hobson's choice, and 5 coins from different countries. Max Maven has the best work on having a spectator pick one of 5 objects, a folded prediction reads "You will pick the English coin" or whatever. No sleights, but you have to be on top of your presentation...no hesitations...anyway it is a way to go. It isn't a trick coin, but no sleights.

While not technically a coin trick, check out Erik Tait’s Ultra Lucky Coin which uses a poker trick. Killer effect with great audience reaction and it’s sleight free.

1.35 coin trick comes to mind as one to consider.

Add a couple of double-headed coins to a handful of change. Have your spectator toss all the coins several times, each time you remove all those showing tails. The final result matches your prediction. Just put all the coins away before you show it. Certified sleight-free coin trick!

My choice would be Hopping Halves.
Make sure to buy the expanded [ version so that you can use the [ for some coin across routines in the future.

John George’s version of “Positive Negative” (Max Maven) is one of my all-time favorites. I use a Sudbury Penny. Perfection.

Are there coins like sucker punch? I heard some bad things about the quality of the poker chips and how cheaply made they were.

Sucker Punch is a great value for the price. Coins would cost you a LOT more for everything that comes in the set. The quality is decent.

Years ago Craig Petty released his Nightshade coin set. Very similar, but not the exact same contents as Sucker Punch. It retailed for $130.

If I remember correctly, Nightshade had a very different set of contents - it was only half of it - split, but no turtles.

It all depends on what you consider as quality, and what you want. For a set of coins to experiment with, I think it was good. A little light (mass), maybe the logos/stickers could have been better, but still pretty solid. To get the whole set - including ungaffed coins would cost a lot more.

There was a turtle included that by design only covered one half of the split, so the halves could be separated while the turtle was fully nested. The Sucker Punch turtles are deeper and can't do that.

Ah, so it was kind of like Wong's Trinity (Perfect Power 3? It's been a while) coin set, but with an extra split set in copper.

Either way, I doubt Sucker Punch is really "no sleight", as with that many gimmicks you have to be careful what you show where.
