People always ask me what I am working on or what will I be releasing next, and I rarely give a direct answer. Because what I found out many years ago, is that even if I am a week away from releasing something, it does not mean it will actually happen. It might be delayed a week, a year, or even forever. It is why you never see me hawking things until they are in stock.
However, for the past couple of months, when asked, I would say that I am about to release the greatest coin trick in the history of the world!
On every occasion they looked at me with skepticism. Until I performed the routine and they nodded, really liked it, even loved it, one person screamed.
But the best in the history of the world? The revelation of how good this is, was when I explained how it worked. The magicians that were not familiar with it didn’t realize that they were fooled. They assumed there were sleights and a switch involved that they missed, but when I showed them that it used a single coin that fits in your pocket, is self-working, and completely examinable at the end they immediately asked when they can get one.
And this is the great news I am now able to share with you. I am now the owner of many of the David Roth’s creations. His Eraser Coin is by far my favorite of his marketed routines and one I used to perform when doing table hopping during the last century. I will be pacing myself and releasing these items every few months.
But first the Eraser Coin. A must have for anyone who likes performing examinable magic in intimate settings. I promise you that once you learn it and perform it a few times it will always be in your pocket and will be your go to trick. The brilliant part of it is the optical illusion at the beginning.
►David Roth’s Eraser Coin:
The eraser coin is the most devious and easiest of the many David Roth creations. It combines an optical illusion with a great premise. Many people consider it his greatest routine.
You show a coin and then using an eraser you begin rubbing the edge of the coin until it slowly starts disintegrating. You do the same to the other end of the coin until the round coin begins to look like a triangle. You then start erasing the face of the coin until it becomes blurry… except for the area that you were holding with your fingers. The unique looking coin you are left with is now examinable.
►US Kennedy Half Dollar: This is the standard edition of the Eraser Coin that David used to sell at lectures. It is made using modern half dollars that are dated from 1970 to the present.
►40% Silver US Kennedy Half Dollar: Between 1965 and 1969 the Kennedy halves were made from 40% silver content which makes the edges of the eraser coin show less copper than the standard Kennedys.
►90% Silver US Kennedy Half Dollar: This is the coin David preferred. The 1964 Kennedy Half Dollars were made from 90% silver and look and sound better that all other Kennedy halves.
This new edition of the Eraser Coin has been modified slightly from the original to make the erased coin look more realistic and visually satisfying.
Comes complete with the special coin, an eraser, and access to an online video tutorial by David Roth.
NOTE: Each coin is individually hand-crafted by an artisan and no two coins will be exactly the same.

PS: These turned out to be much more difficult to make than expected. They are very time consuming and labor intensive, and I only have a limited quantity.
