Considered by many to be one of the best routines ever invented by coin magic legend David Roth, “Eraser Coin” blends a delightfully deceptive illusion with an engaging premise to create an one-of-a-kind experience audiences will never forget.
After introducing a half dollar coin, you begin to rub the edge with an eraser which begins to impossibly disappear right in front of your audience’s eyes. This is repeated on the other end of the coin, with the sides being “erased” until you hold what looks like a triangle. You then start rubbing the eraser on the face of the coin and watch as your audience’s jaws drop to the floor when they see everything but the area between your fingers is now blurry.
Here’s the best part: this bizarre coin can be handed out for examination.
Unlike other knuckle-busting routines from David Roth, “Eraser Coin” is super easy to do. It is a remarkably visual and memorable way to end any coin magic set.
Each “Eraser Coin” comes with an upgraded version of the original gimmicked coin that has been slightly modified to look more realistic and visually satisfying. You’ll also receive an eraser and access to a comprehensive online tutorial where you can learn the routine from the master himself.
Three versions are available
- Standard US Kennedy Half Dollar: This standard “Eraser Coin” is made using modern half dollars that were manufactured between 1970 and the present. It is the same version David used to sell at his lectures.
- 40% Silver US Kennedy Half Dollar: This version is constructed using only Kennedy halves that were produced between 1965 and 1969. These coins are made with 40% silver meaning the edges show less copper during the “erased” phase than a standard Kennedy half dollar.
- 90% Silver US Kennedy Half Dollar: David Roth’s preferred coin, 1964 Kennedy half dollars are made with 90% silver meaning they look and sound better than any other Kennedy half dollar.
