Coin Producing Wand by Owen Magic Supreme, Les Smith(c. 1976,1997) (Submit Review) (Submit Update)
The Coin Wand was first exposed in Hoffman’s Modern Magic as The Half-Crown (or Florin) Wand (pg. 203), it was first used in performance c. 1872. Stanyon’s advertised their version c. 1902, Roterberg advertised there version c. 1904, and Thayer (which would be the closet decedent to this Owen’s one) were advertising there’s at least as early 1921 but probably earlier. They also had a Slender Coin Wand, but this did not use the same mechanical approach.
This wand from Owen’s is the cleanest and most beautiful coin wand I have seen. It works perfectly and is smooth as silk. It even has a cap to cover the end when not being used as a coin wand. You can also view the coin from both sides. It is very solid and measures 14″ with 2 1/8″ tips. It weighs 5.6oz, it matches the standard wand here.
Effect: The Owen designed coin wand is an up to date classic. At the tip of the wand a genuine half dollar appears or vanishes at the magician’s will. Mechanically perfect, made of metal 14” long and a mere 5/8” diameter. Finished black with gold tips and both ends of the wand are closed when not in use. The coin may be shown on both sides and nothing unusual can be detected even when held as close as 18″.
Approx. Price: $195.00 (2019) ***Notice: I am not a dealer and this item is not for sale on this site. It maybe available in the links below or at our sister site: qualitymagicsales.com, but not from here so please do not ask.
