The classic TWO HEADED HALF DOLLAR or DOUBLE SIDED COIN! This is a real U.S. half dollar, machined so that both sides are the same (either both sides are "HEADS" or both sides are "TAILS"). A sneaky way to win a bet every time!

Coin only- no routines or instructions are included.

Performance Ideas   Performance Ideas:

Here is a routine for you! This will work with ANY of our double sided coins.
Start with two real half dollars and one double head half dollar in your right pocket and two real half dollars plus a double tail half dollar in your left pocket.
Ask your friend if he would like to play a game.
Have your friend call out Heads or Tails. Let's say he picks Tails.
You tell him you have three coins in your pocket. You are going to take them out and drop them on the table.
If all three coins are Tails, he wins. If all three are Heads, you'll win.
Since he called Tails, you'll take the three coins out of your RIGHT pocket (the one with the double head coin).
Drop the three coins on the table. You have a one in three chance of winning. Your friend has ZERO chance!
You can keep picking up and dropping the coins until you win.
Of course, if he had called Heads, you would use the coins in your LEFT pocket.
Winner winner chicken dinner!!

History of this magic effect   History and Trivia:

This is an old trick! The Two-Headed Coin was described in the classic book, The Discoverie of Witchcraft, in 1584.

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."
