The Vault is just a general name they use for the old video series. Here's the link for Penguin, but if you have a favorite magic shop that offers downloads, they'll probably have it too.

Canadian silver dollar = 32 mm
Bahamian silver dollar (1966-70 or maybe later) = 34 mm
Mexican silver 5 peso (1955-57; dates matter!) = 35 mm
Philippine silver 1 peso (1907-12) = 35 mm


Compulsive that I am, and for the record, I did a bit more math:

Quarter = 0.955 inch = 24.26 mm
Half Dollar = 1.205 inch = 30.61 mm
Same Ratio Up = 1.52 inch = 38.62 mm

A silver dollar is only 38.10 mm.

But we’re looking for a coin that is bigger than a half, yet smaller than a dollar — right? (The proverbial “75 cent piece.”)

So am I not doing something right, mathematically speaking, when the whole idea is to have a special coin that is "larger than the half dollar in the same ratio that a half dollar is larger than a quarter"?

I am confused.

Karnak, I think it boils down to it being easy to feel the difference between the half and the chosen coin. I got slightly different measurements, but coins and dates can put sizes all over. IE the Canadian Silver Dollar I have is 35.9mm. That's about 6mm difference between a quarter and a half and the half and my Canadian Dollar. Easy to feel the difference. The Piso I have is 33.4mm and it's tough to tell the difference between the half an Piso. I don't think math needs to be involved. Just the spec thinking he's got a half and an quarter in his hand, when he's really got a half and a (insert your favorite coin here) in his hand.

Yeah, it’s one of Roth’s easier tricks to do but a solid fooler. And Tom is right, nothing complicated here, just a quick fooling of the mind as to two of the five senses, sight and touch. Getting the right size coin is usually the biggest trick of it all. 😁 That has probably stopped more people to date from doing this little gem than anything else. 😊
