Masterful coin magic at your fingertips!


Show two coins, a half dollar and an English penny.
Place them in your closed hand.
Remove one, show it, place it in your pocket.
Open your hand- both coins are still there!
Repeat this several times, if you wish.
Finally, as a climax, after removing a coin and placing it in your pocket, open your hand- it's empty!
Both coins have vanished!

Completely mechanical and easy to do. This version comes with an expanded shell (a $24.00 value!) that can be used by itself to do other tricks.

The Hopping Half- Regular Version is a less expensive version of this trick, but uses all gimmicked coins and does not come with an expanded shell.

What You Get

Here's what you'll get:

  • one gimmicked coin set, including a half dollar size Expanded Shell coin
  • printed instructions

You supply an ordinary half dollar coin, available from your bank or from MagicTricks.com.
