Hopping Half- Regular


Make coins travel invisibly, then vanish!


Ages 13 and up   Level 2

What a startling coin effect!

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 is done with all gimmicked coins.

The Expanded Shell version uses real coins and expanded shells.

History and Trivia:

J.N. Hofzinzer invented the Coin Shell in the mid-1800s. Conrad Haden invented the Expanded Shell. Then Jim Boyd took both ideas and developed the Hopping Half trick in 1967.

Great Set, Great Price
I recently purchased this set from here and will attest to its high quality. I've had a couple of days now to work the coins in and they are operating very smoothly. This set is precision made where you can happily show both sides of the coins throughout without ever fearing anything showing or flashing. Unlike most coin routines, during Hopping Half both sides of both coins can be openly and comfortably displayed which is why many of my magic cohorts, myself included, consider it to be the best coin magic trick ever. It's an easy brain blaster and this set does the job pleasingly.

Received this hopping half set yesterday and it is very good quality. The set I received is made by Roy Kueppers who is known for high quality magic coins. The coins look, feel and work perfectly. This is my first hopping half set but I have many other magic coins so I know a good set when I see one. If you are thinking about buying a set, this is the set to buy. Can't beat the price either :-)
