Make a coin vanish from your spectator's closed hand!

Demo Video



Place an American half dollar and a Mexican centavo style coin (a copper color coin) in a spectator's hand.
Close their hand, reach in and remove the half dollar.
Now "invisibly" remove the copper coin.
Of course, the spectator will insist that the copper coin is still in their closed hand.
But when they open it, the copper coin has, in fact vanished- and has changed to an American quarter!

Completely mechanical and quality made from a real US half dollar.

Comes with instructions, gimmicked coin set (you supply the real American quarter) and Bang Ring for resetting the coins.
For more instruction on the handling and routines for this coin set, see the Scotch and Soda Book.

Lost your Bang Ring or Centavo coin?
We also carry the replacement Bang Ring or the replacement Centavo coin.

What You Get

Here's what you'll get:

  • Scotch and Soda coin set (with gimmicked real US half dollar and centavo-style copper coin)
  • bang ring
  • printed instructions

You supply an ordinary U.S. quarter.

It is strongly recommended that you carry and store this coin set separately from regular money, in a pouch or a Coin Carrier (available from MagicTricks.com) so that you don't spend it by mistake.

Tips & Ideas


Make sure you don't spend the trick coin by mistake!
Keep your trick coins safe and separate from other coins.
Keep them in a COIN CARRIER.
See the different styles of coin carriers and cases for sale here.

Performance Ideas:

You can choose to change the copper coin to a US quarter, or you can change it into any similar size coin, such as a Susan B Anthony dollar coin, etc.
If you are going to repeat the trick, it is fun to do it the first time with a quarter, and the next time with a gold color coin, like a Sacagawea dollar (you can purchase these at a coin shop).

History and Trivia:

Is it illegal to use real US coins to make magic tricks?
According to the U.S. Treasury F.A.Q., the answer is- No.
It is only illegal to alter a US coin with the intention of spending it as if it were a coin of a different value.
From the official U.S. Treasury website: "Section 331 of Title 18 of the United States code provides criminal penalties for anyone who 'fraudulently alters, defaces, mutilates impairs, diminishes, falsifies, scales, or lightens any of the coins coined at the Mints of the United States.' This statute means that you may be violating the law if you change the appearance of the coin and fraudulently represent it [in a monetary transaction in trade for goods or services] to be other than the altered coin that it is. As a matter of policy, the U.S. Mint does not promote coloring, plating or altering U.S. coinage: however, there are no sanctions against such activity absent fraudulent intent."

Customer Reviews

Hobby Magician
This Scotch & Soda set is top notch!! The one I received was made by Sterling Magic and is beautiful!! I have a Sterling set I bought 15 years ago at a local hobby shop and it still works great. Now that I have two I can perform it twice as often before resetting. Gimmick is completely undetectable. This is a must buy for any magician looking for an easy, mind blowing effect that can be handed out for examination afterwards. High quality set.. 5 stars
