Coin Classic (2013) by Collectors’ Workshop(c. 2013) (Submit Review) (Submit Update)
Collectors’ Workshop first created this beauty in 1985.
This extraordinary piece of apparatus was first developed by England’s master clock maker, John Martin. In that version, four half dollars were placed in a glass and covered by a silk. The glass was balanced on a cigarette case which was, itself, balanced on a second glass. Then the performer moved away, gestured and, incredibly, the coins visibly penetrated to the lower glass, one by one.
The CW Coin Classic has been redesigned to fit neatly within a card case (which, by the way may be shown on both sides before the effect). The new version built by Viking/CW and my good friend George Robinson is very precise and reliable and works cleanly every time.
The original routine is included in the manuscript, but also suggests additions and alternatives. It’s a perfect end to an Okito box routine, for example.
If you perform this correctly, the effect is about as magical as it gets. A small amount of practice will leave you with one of the finest effects from the Collector’s Workshop stable – without selling your home!
Effect: One of the loveliest effects in magic. Four half dollars are placed in a glass and covered with a silk handkerchief.
The glass is balanced atop a deck of cards, and then the cards and glass are themselves balanced on top of another glass. On command, the coins visibly penetrate the upper glass and cards, one by one, and are seen to drop into the bottom glass.
An exquisite custom-crafted mechanism does all the work. No sleights; complete with all necessary props; you supply the coins. This effect is sheer poetry and will delight you and even better, it will delight your audience. This is real Magic.
