The coin trick ANYONE can perform- yet it's SO STARTLING!

One of the easiest, yet most astounding, coin tricks! Every magician should have the Nickels To Dimes Coin Trick, it's that good!

Change a stack of nickels into a stack of dimes! Or make the stack of nickels disappear! Or pass the nickels right through a solid table! The precision-made gimmick does all the work for you! Many different effects are possible, and the instructions for a number of effects are included.

Made of brass for years of use. For the same trick that also allows you to "shrink" the nickels into tiny ones, see Shrinking Nickels.

Performance Ideas

Use this trick along with the Shrinking Nickels trick. First, use the Nickels To Dimes to change nickels to dimes, then use the Shrinking Nickels as a follow-up, changing nickels to miniature coins.

What you'll get:

  • Nickels To Dimes trick (brass cap, brass gimmick)
  • printed instructions

You supply one ordinary nickel and four ordinary dimes.
For the easiest handling, you may want to stick the ordinary nickel to the top of the metal stack. You can either use glue for a permanent bond, or you can use Magician's Wax, which can be purchased from MagicTricks.com.


History of this magic effect History and Trivia:

The famous magician and mystery writer Walter Gibson introduced the concept of this trick.

Prior to the introduction of the "nickel", five-cent pieces were made of silver and were called half-dimes. After the Civil War, silver was in short supply, so the coin was changed to a copper/nickel alloy. Thus the term "nickel" came to be used.

According to a March 12, 2012 article in the Wall Street Journal, it now costs the U.S. Treasury Department 11.2 cents to manufacture a nickel coin.
