One of the most clever trick coins ever devised!
Miracles can take place right in your hands, with very little skill necessary!
Imagine borrowing ordinary coins and performing impossibilities with them- a magician's dream! Dozens of effects are possible, including a very easy version of the classic Coins Thru Table effect, as well as vanishes, transpositions and penetrations.
This precision-made U.S. half dollar size coin will fit over any real U.S. half dollar- in fact, it is made from a REAL U.S. half dollar!
And unlike the cheaper economy versions sold elsewhere, only the edge of this coin is stretched, so there is no distortion on the face of the coin.
BONUS! This coin even comes with instructions for a vanishing coin effect!
We also carry a Hopping Half trick coin set that has an expanded shell as part of the set. You can use the expanded shell separately if you buy that set- and get many tricks in one.
Difference between a "shim shell" and an "expanded shell": The shim shell is the exact same size as a half dollar, but is only a shell, so you can hide other smaller coins underneath it. The shim is also able to stick to a magnet. The expanded shell is a shell that is slightly larger than a half dollar, and is made to fit over the half dollar (thus, for example, making it look like you have two coins in your hand, and when the shell fits over the half, now you only have one).
PLEASE NOTE: Though we usually have both "heads" and "tails" IN STOCK, our current inventory may be limited to only "heads" or only "tails". If "tails" are IN STOCK, that is what we prefer to ship unless you specify that you want "heads". If choice is a concern, please contact us to inquire about specific availability. Also, dates available are limited to the stock at hand.
