A terrific gimmicked coin!


Excellent utility coin that allows you to do so may effects!
Make US quarters vanish and reappear in the palm of your hand.
Change a quarter to a dime, and much more.

Please note that you will be getting the gimmicked coin only- no instructions.

Difference between a shim shell and an expanded shell:
This shim shell is the exact same size as a quarter, but is only a shell, so you can hide other 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.

Tips & Ideas

Performance Ideas:

You can use this coin to change a quarter into another coin. For example, place the Shim Shell on your hand with a dime coin hidden underneath. Palm off the shell in your favorite manner (and since the shell is shimmed, a magnet can be used) to make it appear as though the quarter has changed to a dime.

Customer Reviews

Always carry it with me. The best illusion I do with it is to make a quarter go thru a glass table top.
