History and Trivia:
Is it illegal to use real US coins to make magic tricks? According to the U.S. Treasury F.A.Q., the answer is- No.
It is only illegal to alter a US coin with the intention of spending it as if it were a coin of a different value.
From the official U.S. Treasury website: "Section 331 of Title 18 of the United States code provides criminal penalties for anyone who 'fraudulently alters, defaces, mutilates impairs, diminishes, falsifies, scales, or lightens any of the coins coined at the Mints of the United States.' This statute means that you may be violating the law if you change the appearance of the coin and fraudulently represent it [in a monetary transaction in trade for goods or services] to be other than the altered coin that it is. As a matter of policy, the U.S. Mint does not promote coloring, plating or altering U.S. coinage: however, there are no sanctions against such activity absent fraudulent intent."

Bit and Restored Quarter only BETTER!!! One of those MUST HAVE coin tricks, first made famous by David Blaine, now improved with these larger and therefor more visible Silver Half Dollars! Here's my technique, put a tic-tac in your cheek before performing the trick. Start the trick by telling the spectators Today to save Money the government is putting less and less real silver in the half dollar and more and more junk metal - here, I can show you. Now take the half dollar and place it to your lips. While working the gimmick bite down on the tic-tac loudly and say Ouch while making a painful grimace. Now show the Bit Half Dollar and say See???. After restoring the Half Dollar, spit out the tic-tac to one side (the white color will make it look like a tooth fragment). Complete the illusion by saying Oh well, I have plenty more teeth where that came from. The reaction is always a mix of shock and amazement!!! Be sure to get the extra rubber bands sold here at MagicTricks.Com, they are hard to find, and you will go through them if you do the trick frequently.
