I have a confession to make. Over the past few years, I probably lost close to a thousand dollars worth of gimmicked coins that I was carrying in my pockets.
That is one of the reasons I keep buying all kinds of small wallets and pouches. I recently bought two different types of coin wallets that are useable and decided to get a bunch more for you.
I also just received a few copies of Richard Kaufman’s reprint of his seminal book about coin magic that introduced many of the most influential coin magic specialists of the last half of the twentieth century.
►The Gaff Satchel:
The Gaff Satchel is a leather key ring coin holder that is designed to keep your gaffed coins organized and easily accessible, while also protecting them from damage.
The satchel can comfortably hold a single dollar size coin with a shell over it or up to three half-dollars.

►Black Cowhide Coin Wallet:
This is a beautiful and extremely well-made leather coin wallet that can hold more coins than it appears that it should. It can easily hold up to four dollar-sized coins or six half-dollar-sized coins.

This was a seminal book when it came out, that spearheaded the advancement of coin magic and introduced the magicians who helped shape the way magic with coins is currently being performed.
The leading coin magicians of the time shared some of their best creations. You will learn magic by David Roth, Geoff Latta, Sol Stone, Slydini, Ed Marlo, Dai Vernon, Derek Dingle, John Cornelius, Ken Krenzel, Herb Zarrow, Tom Gagnon, Scott Weiser, David Arthur, Wesley James, Mark Levy, Bruce Berkowitz, Scott Weiser, John Bentz, Fernando Roman, Joe Safuto, Danny Korem, Les Shore, Bob Friedhoffer, and Richard Kaufman.

It is a borrowed and signed coin to impossible location routine that is disguised as a game with a prize and a prediction. The appearance of the signed coin comes as a total surprise.
It is extremely easy to do and open to different types of presentations. The bag with the jar inside can also be kept in full view during the entire routine. You can also use the jar to load billets with predictions. Instead of candy you can fill the jar with anything you like (except liquids or powders).

►OUR LATEST RELEASE:
Ed Solomon, who was also known as DeNomolos, was a master storyteller who used magic to emphasize the point or moral of his stories. He wanted his magic to appeal to the intellect and touch the soul of his audiences, or as he put it: “People may not remember my name or the magic that I performed, but they will remember how it made them feel.”
Between 2004 and 2015 Ed wrote 125 columns in The Linking Ring magazine that featured short stories that used simple magic to highlight their messages. All those columns are included in this book along with some bonus tricks, essays, and more.
If you ever wanted to elevate your magic from just being a series of puzzles into meaningful moments of magic, this book may inspire you to think along those lines.
