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. quarter size coin will fit over any U.S. quarter.
In fact, it is made from a real U.S. quarter.
And unlike the cheaper economy versions sold elsewhere, only the edge of the coin is stretched, so there is no distortion on the face of the coin.

BONUS! This coin comes with instructions for a vanishing coin effect!

Difference between a "shim shell" and an "expanded shell": The shim shell is the exact same size as a quarter, 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 quarter, and is made to fit over the quarter (thus, for example, making it look like you have two coins in your hand, and when the shell fits over the quarter, now you only have one).

Though we usually have both "heads" and "tails" IN STOCK, our current inventory may be limited to only "heads" or only "tails".
If "heads" are IN STOCK, that is what we prefer to ship unless you specify that you want "tails".
If choice is a concern, please contact us to inquire about specific availability.
Also, dates are limited to the stock at hand.
And the back design (state design or eagle design) is limited to the stock we have on hand.

Q: I have an expanded quarter shell but the shell does not cover a quarter completely, some of the real quarter can be seen protruding at the bottom of the shell. Does YOUR Expanded Quarter shell cover a quarter completely?
Asked by: Rob - 1/23/2016
A: Expanded shells don't cover all of the coin they are placed over.
A while back Johnson coins made a deep shell coin, but it's now discontinued.
When presenting your routine using an expanded shell, always have your audience view the coins from above.
If you lift the coins up to eye level, they will of course be able to see that there is another coin inside of the shell.
Using a closeup pad will also help, as the cushioned top of the pad will allow the wight of the coin to push it down very slightly into the pad, thus making it more difficult to see the edge of the coin.
