History and Trivia:

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

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.

Q: Does your double headed nickels have the same date on both sides?
Asked by: Vince - 7/12/2015
A: Good question!
No, they do not.
These nickels are made by slicing real nickels into two pieces, then connecting two head slices together.
Unfortunately, the manufacturer does not match up the halves, and the sides almost always have two different dates. Answer provided by:  MagicTricks.com (7/12/2015)

Customer Reviews

Nice quality
These Double Side nickels are cheap, but don't let that stop you from buying them. These are definitely the best quality out there. They are made by precision slicing two real nickels in half, then sealing the two HEAD halfs together. These have a seam that can't be seen from the side. These double headed coins are really nice. I highly recommend these to anyone. You can find a use for these, even if it is just to win a bet from a friend.

Double Head Nickel
Fine for winning a bet. You can certainly have a lot of fun with this. However, the way they are made one side has one date, but the other side has another different date, so you can't perform some kind of prediction tricks if the date is involved unless you can keep the coin in your own hand. The quality is very good though. They are made with real American coins.
