Trick Type: Coin
Price: 15 pounds from Marvin's Magic, 8.99 from
Difficulty: 2 (out of 5)
Examinable: Not really, but can be tolerated
Angles: Any
Reset: Instant


2 brass caps and a ring are shown. Instantly a stack of 10p coins appear under one cap. After they are covered they teleport to the other cap. They can also penetrate metal. The 10p coins transform instantly to pennies IN THE HANDS OF THE AUDIENCE.


This is a good trick to show to the layman, but it is probably overused. The price from Marvin's Magic is hardly worth paying, although it does come in one of their executive magic sets. I've tried the tricks several times, and the effect is good only that the audience inevitably want to examine the brass caps. Also, they have to be made to precision, because if these tricks are badly made you're only begging to be burnt. Overall, a great trick for beginners, but those more adept at magic would not want to spend money on this.

Rating: 8/10

I have to say the Marvins Magic set is not the best made version I have seen. Heavier brass ones can be had - although you will pay more

Nice trick though - I use mine a lot

have seen this performed by people who have no interest in magic at all and was almost fooled by it.. i think for a beginner this is one of the most effective visual vanishes

i have heard that it is a bit fiddly to get it right, is this not the case then?

nope.. it is one of the easiest and effective self working tricks there is, in my humble opinion

maybe worth a look then, if it doesn't look too obvious as to how the effect works,

just for a quick trick for the work colleagues or something theyre forever wanting to see something new

I worked with a guy who showed me this trick and was totally perplexed by it. He wouldn't tell me how it was done but did say where I could buy it so this is what I did!!! This gave me the interest in magic that I still have today. It's a wonderfull little piece of kit that all budding magicians should start with. OK so the trick is pretty basic and very easy to perform but it gives you a good grounding in the patter that goes with the harder tricks that are coming onto the market!!
If ya starting out, invest a few quid in to this one!!

I agree with captain fantastic. Simple and easy but still a fantastic trick.

Tip: to 'antique' the edges of the stack a bit, so they match the coin on top, separate the stacks and leave them outside for a week (somewhere safe, though) during our lovely British weather (joke...)

This is true for most gaffed coins... you can 'age' them quite easily - it helps.
