Triad Coins

Trick by Joshua Jay (59.95)

In stock.

Imagine what it would look like if you could REALLY vanish coins into thin air. Then watch this trailer.

Triad Coins is how this should, and does, look.

No funny moves. No fast motion. No camera edits.

You roll back your sleeves. You show three coins. One by one, they just ... disappear. Triad Coins is a revelation in coin magic.

Triad Coins is a double-shell and coin system that allows you to produce, vanish, or change three half dollars at will. You can show BOTH hands entirely empty after the last vanish, and perform the effect in short sleeves. Joshua Jay has honed this miracle over a ten-year period, and the result is an elegant, smooth, and extremely deceptive routine, possible ONLY with Triad Coins.

If you have ever seen Joshua Jay lecture, this is the trick he closes with. Long available ONLY through Joshua Jay directly, Vanishing Inc. Magic is proud to release Triad Coins to the world of magicians.

  • Surprisingly easy to perform
  • 3 routines included
  • Each set is precision-made by hand

Please Note: The packaging for "Triad Coins" differs slightly from what is discussed in the video. Instead of a plastic case, the coins and gimmicks now come in a sturdy cardboard case with a foam holder.

Premium Options Available

While this set comes in a US Kennedy Half Dollar, we also have premium "Morgan Dollar Triads" and "Walking Liberty Triads" available.

 

Customer reviews for Triad Coins

Reviewer

Only just getting back into coin magic, and this is as close to the real thing as you can get - still waiting for the actual package to ship, but I’ve watched the video and been practicing the final vanish with a regular coin.

Joshua Jay is a genius. This and Inferno are proof, if needed, that his thinking is second to none.

I cannot wait to get this out into the real world.

Well done Vanishing Inc. for creating some of the best magic imaginable! Keep up the amazing work guys.

I am more of a magic enthusiast that dabbles in the “amateur magic” professed by such publications as “The Jerx”. I decided to test a theory to great effect at a job that had me patrolling a property. I needed something to help with the arthritis called “Ankylosing Spondylitis” that is greatly affecting my hands, lower back, (well, overall back), etc. I also had my right hand paralyzed by a bad or rushed UltraSound I.V. So I needed something to use for cheap, anytime physical therapy. I love coins. I love coin magic. Bingo! So while doing that… everywhere basically until my hands got so sore I had to be prescribed a medicated prescription in a Trans-Dermal Cream, I had always been interested in “Triad Coins”. Love them!!!!! The result of my theory & tests is that I really think this could be the next “Scotch & Soda” if it is not already. My only gripe at the moment is that the 1st Vanish on my set is a Tails side. It gets either friction-y or caught up on the… gimmick. This and “Inferno” are two J.J. products I purchased and really enjoy! Thank you so much for releasing this amazing idea! I’m sure you did not have to.

This is a great trick. The props are well-made and the technical level, for me, is both challenging & achievable. Josh is also a great teacher. Who knew? Seriously, there’s no b.s. or repetition; just clear concise instructions and subtle tips that are quite useful.

 
Reviewer

Nathan

Very fun. Doesn't take long to get the rhythm and feel of it. There is also a routine which leaves the spectator with three coins they can examine which is nice.

 
Reviewer

I used to do the flipper coin, but now I fell in love with the Triad Coins. The video explanation has crystal clear instructions on how to operate the Triad Coins and has two excellent routine ideas. So I'm pretty happy for having these coins in my hands.

Amazing trick ! It takes just a little bit of practice to get it perfect and you have to think about angles and sounds but it is easily manageable and the technique is not hard at all. This was my first coin trick ever learned and is a great initiation to it ! It really motivated me to improve my coin technique. Overall very worth the price, you'll have great reactions with the Triad Coins !

 
Reviewer

Lorne

Seriously, I’ve been performing this everywhere. People are kind of fried by it and break into a strange laughter at the absurdity of seeing three coins appear from nowhere and then watching them all disappear. The last coin vanish I have incorporated in a number of coin routines. The coins are well made and do most of the work for you. People assume you are a master of sleight of hand with coins. Highly recommended!

 
Reviewer

Hernan

So this is great! I am kind of new in coin magic, and this is just amazing.

Production and vanishing of 3 coins. What else?

Quality of the coins is really good, the ones getting the expensive versions must be pros or something, for the mortals the quality of these triad coins are just perfect. Not saying I am not really intrigued about the quality of the other ones :). Who knows, may end up getting the "upgraded" version at some point in time.

Anyways, so quality is good, teaching is really good too. Exactly how I like it, to the point but covering every single detail.

Things to consider: of course as most coin magic, there are some angles to consider, and some sound to consider/manage as well. So you really need to think about that before performing this effect. You will also need to practice (probably not a lot, and certainly that would depend on how good you want your performance to be looking like). Just saying this is not right out of the box, unless you already have some good experience in coin magic, which in my view, is actually good thing ( I really like the effects you need to put some time to look like a pro -even when you are not one :)).

This effect is pure magic, and yes probably (once mastered) an EDC looking for the right time/place to amaze people.

Enjoy!

The best pocket trick. Easy to do. You can produce the coins one by one and then cleanly make them vanish one by one. No awkward moves. Just pure magic. Josh lectures on this in all of his online lectures so I finally decided to buy it. Well worth it.

This is a well made gimmick and two straight forward routines (three actually if you count the production and vanish as separate routines). The gimmick is simple to use, and Joshua does his usual great job in demonstrating and explaining. While you can do the routines without the Triade coin(s), it does make them much simpler allowing you to focus on interaction with your audience and telling your story. I am glad I own it.

Brilliantly executed - the contents are well made, the instructions are to the point and easy enough to rewatch. I don't do a lot of coin work so my assessment may be skewed, but as a closeup option that breaks the card monotony and relies on fairly fundamental sleigh techniques this is an excellent addition to many a repertoire.

Simply fantastic and so easy to perform that someone could say it's impossible.
No funny moves and an elegant management of the routine make this effect a great opener for your show.
Nevertheless some noise could happen so I don't recommend Triad Coins for quiet environments with few people involved (or really close ;)).
Well done Joshua and VI colleagues!

Reviewer

Millard

I have been doing coin magic for 40 years and never before felt that shells made my routines better. This set is a dream come true! Joshua is a fabulous magician and creator! And the Wizards team is also fabulous!

After the last vanish, I reproduce the coin and then do a "coin to pocket and back to hand" twice to ditch both shells. I then do a single coin flurry ending with a change to a Silver Extraction coin to end the routine. I use an imaginary lighter to heat the Silver Extraction coin before revealing it in my hand.

There is lots of room for interesting story telling with this coin set. My favorite story is about storing my coins in cyber-space. Then for the Silver Extraction coin I just store the silver in cyber-space and keep the transparent coin as a receipt.

I used to do a lot of coin magic when I was in my early twenties. I remember the cigarette thru quarter, the copper silver brass transposition, and I remember owning the hopping half.

I don’t have those coin props anymore. And now 25 years later, I decide to purchase triad coins. It is the greatest. As a magician who just does it for fun,I find every opportunity to perform Triad coins. It’s quick and the person I perform it for smiles and is entertained, and then she goes back to work. That’s right! My audience is just people I come in contact at the store, at the bank, or at the bar.

I miss doing coin magic, and what better way to return to coin magic then to get Triad coins. I don’t need a table. I can just do it right in front of their eyes on the other side of the checkout counter where they stand. Oh! And yes! My triad coins go inside my pro carrier!

These are great coins for the price. I use them in my cocktail and table hoping work. There is a slight noise so I wouldn’t use these for a close-up parlour set, but I use these often at corporate events and wedding receptions. Those environments make the slight sound of the coins inaudible. You could always get around that with Teflon tape I suppose, but it’s not necessary for my needs.

This is great. I love this. I was looking for something to have several magic moments in one quick routine for my strolling or table hopping gigs and this one is it. Absolutely love it! As someone that's more of a card guy than a coin guy, this is easy enough for me to do and look like I have incredible sleight-of-hand skills with coins.

These coins are great, similar gimmicks go for hundreds of dollars. At the price Vanishing Inc is selling this for, it’s a steal. There is so much that can be done with this. I highly recommend getting this.

Very clearly explained technique. I appreciated the additional routine with the normal coins and how they can be used alongside the triad coins. I look forward to trying these out. The concept is simple but very cool. I also see what he meant by tinny sound as they nest. The vanish is slick as well, very sneaky. Glad I purchased this product.

First, I'm 77 years old, my magic heroes were like most people my age were, Vernon, Marlo, Jennings, Eugene Berger, Johnny Thompson, Juan Tamariz and many more. My own bench mark was David Ben of Magicana Toronto. I never could quite catch up to him, however I did manage to achieve some notoriety as a quality magician. When I first seen books by Joshua Jay, I thought what can this guy know, he's just a kid, so I avoided his books and tricks.
I know know, that was probably one of the worst mistakes I ever made Sometimes you don't appreciate greatness until you see it. Every now and then a Magician comes along who breaks the boundaries with new thinking and new ideas, sutch a man is Joshua Jay.
His lecture in Toronto on Friday November 11 2022 simply put, was the best lecture I ever attended. My only regret was I did not bring enough cash to purchase more of his products. This was more than just a lecture, it was a stellar performance. I did by the Triad Coins and can say I'm more than pleased with the quality of the coins, his video goes into every minute detail of the handling and offers several other ideas with the coins. Last, all I can say is buy it today.

The Triad coins and routine are exquisite! The coins are well made and work about a seamless as possible. The routine has been worked and vetted so you get a real polished effect with the optimum sleights and subtleties. But, Joshua leaves it open enough to allow you to add your own creative nuances to fit your style. Comparably, the price point is also hard to beat for the quality. Enjoy!

This coin(s) set is exactly as advertised. Quality is excellent in that surfaces cannot be discerned as different from the genuine article. A basic routine is super easy and anyone should be able to perform this; it will be convincing. Video description is excellent. I would consider this set as a true utility device with myriad possibilities. The non-standard configuration of the gadgetry enables novel applications that are easy to construct. Writing as a non-professional, I would give this item my highest recommendation.

Easy. Simple. And you can end with having the coins examined. Oh, and Josh’s explanation throughly reviews the few easy sleights required while pointing out getting around the minor drawbacks of the coin. Truly a well made gimmick that is a classic of magic. A great opener for any closeup or walk around act.

 
Reviewer

Roger

After 30 years of performing magic at fairs here in Tennessee I never realized I could do Coin Magic in a parlor setting. What a GREAT opener. I would advise anyone to go outside the box and perform with these great coins. But like all magic you will need a good patter and some practice. But most important DO NOT order knock-offs from anyone. Buy only the best at VANISHING inc.

 
Reviewer

Another perfectly explained magic effect by the master himself, Joshua Jay. Josh is amazing at explaining each sequence and what "to do" and "not to do" in each phase of the routine.

Triad Coins is an effect that is now in my close-up show. Its, dare I say, perfect!!!

This is such an elegant, well thought-out trick, like everything by Joshua. Perfectly explained and filmed in all details.

Very versatile and makes a great impact wherever you perform it.

This effect is a must have if you are a Joshua Jay fan or magician. It is not just a beautiful routine. It’s also a utility device that can be adapted into many different routines. A beautiful combo I perform with this effect is the glass through table followed by the production then vanish of the triad coins.
This effect never fails to leave my audience in awe of my sleight of hand. *wink,wink.
The design of this effect ensures with a bit of practice and awareness of your angles you too can perform the astonishing triad coins just like Joshua Jay!

 
Reviewer

Robert

I’m a rookie, but was actually able to perform this trick reasonably well after about 30-45 min of practice. Great instructional video, and the final vanish was a bonus. (and way easier than “Catch”., which is a good vanish too, but not “easy”). Coin tricks tend to run more price-wise due to the machine work and this one is a great deal and high quality coins. Definitely recommend this regardless of skill level.

I hate coins and suck at coin sleights, but this is great. This is for someone who is just starting out in coin magic and wants to do some impressive stuff without learning a million coin sleights. Although it is pricy, it is a good investment if you need a gap to fill in your virtual or close-up shows.

 
Reviewer

Steven

These cons are great for close-up magic. The directions were easy to understand and I was performing the trick in no time. Also, because of their size, it is a great trick to keep on you (along with your favorite deck of cards) any take out whenever needed.

I bought another set of coins that nest like this and paid a great deal more for them (and I mean a great deal more). While the purest might be able to see some small subtle differences, they are virtually the same and some might argue that the Triad coins are better.
The routine is great magic. If all you do is the three coin vanish (shown on the video) you will love them. If you decide to do the appearance or coins across you will realize that they are worth far, far more than the asking price. The routine is well within the range of any mid-level coin worker (and really, any beginner).
This has my highest recommendation and I would have been happy had I paid twice and perhaps even three times the price. I try not to overstate the value of props or routines, but this may be the best piece that I have ever purchased from Vink (and I have bought a lot). You will not be disappointed.

 
Reviewer

Brandon

This is one excellent product. Workers are going to love this. The coins are very well made and they behave exactly as they are supposed to. You can pretty much perform with these in any setting and the way the coins work together cleans up so so much of what I don't like about coin magic. Joshua Jay's solution for the last coin is simple, practical, and deceptive. Oh yeah, and the core routine is within the grasp of a beginner. If you do coins you should get this. If you don't do coins and just want one routine that's not cards you should get this. A big thank you to Joshua Jay for bringing this to the market and for his continued effort to share quality, practical, and workable material. A+

These coins allow you to magically produce and disappear three coins. Also, a great toshhree fly routine is explained as well. As Josh says- "the best news-" it is all very easy thanks to this set of gaffed coins. Great magic and easy to perform . Thanks Josh!

The Triad Coins are well thought out and very well made. I am assuming the gaffed coins are made from real Kennedy Half Dollars but I'm not sure. If they are replicas then that is even more impressive because they look perfect. Joshua Jay's instructional video is professionally shot with clear instructions and good tips. With practice, using the gaffed coins can become fairly quiet.

Nice routine. Would have liked to hear more about a non watch vanish with the nested coins. Also any tips on diminishing the talking issues. Finally would like a routine where u take the away the final coin and it appears in their hand.

 
Reviewer

Triad coins are a great trick! They are wonderfully made, easy to use, and you will soon be performing miracles with them. The only problem is that they have a bit of noise to them which you have you have to be careful about. That being said, as long as you are performing with a bit of atmosphere and not in complete silence, you should have nothing to worry about. This is a great purchase that allows, even a beginner, to perform one of the most coolest effects in magic - produce an object(s) then vanish an object(s).

 
Reviewer

This is a beautifuly made trick. It’s one of the most ingenious coin production and vanish. I give this 4 stars because you have to have a watch of wrist band. The best that I recommend is a twistoflex band. In all this is an awesome trick. If you like real magic, this is the trick for you

Joshua Jay has done a great job with these coins. The routines are great. You can do so much with these. I had it down within ten minutes and have wowed my friends and family!

Keep up the magic!!

Received the Triad Coins set recently and started to practice with them. I love the effect, but after watching the instructional video a couple of times I notice that despite Joshua's claim that the coins are silent, I hear them clanging together quite a bit when I make them appear. Any advice from fellow posters on how to eliminate the noise? Thank you.

Routine is great but writing this review to advise it no longer comes with a plastic storage unit as advertised.

It's just a cardboard sleeve and insert. Not a massive issue but was for me as I wanted to be able to store this easily and for transport. As someone who performs in bars and social settings a cardboard sleeve won't last a week.

Coins are really good quality and instructions are short but good, knocking off a star for misleading and copy. Off to look to find a storage solution for my new coinsm

The trick is a very good, but the gaffs (50 cent clad halves) are just "ok" at best. So overall, a qualified recommendation, just don't expect much of the gaffs.

 
Reviewer

Roberto

For people interested in buying the 50c euro coin. The quality of the coins is really good, unfortunately I don't know if this is a problem of the product in general or just for this type of coins, but they make a lot of noise – and a particular revealing noise – during the move required to make them disappear. For this reason is I don't recommend their use in a close-up situation, unless you're performing in a really loud environment.

 
Reviewer

Mark

The trick itself is great, in theory, but the (UK 10p) item I received was not of the quality suggested, menaing in practice it was easily spotted.

Had the item been better made, this would be magnificent.

    • 1. Vanishing Inc. Magic responds: There are some sleights, but they are basic ones. The routine is reasonable easy overall. A beginner would need to practice a bit but they could get the hang of it without too much trouble
  • River asks: Regarding the UK turtle... is it expanded to fit a any regular 10p turtle? Is it one of the cheaper ones where you can see the seam on the face?

    • 1. Vanishing Inc. Magic responds: It's two shells, one expanded, one not.
  • Daniel asks: I formerly performed magic but due to a series of injuries in the Army (now 100% disabled Vietnam-era Veteran), I stopped practicing/performing. I would like to get back into magic. Unfortunately, I have had to have both of my thumbs rebuilt and my ability to do sleight of hand is in the range of difficult to impossible. Triad Coins looks amazing but how difficult is the sleight of hand involved in performing.

    • 1. Vanishing Inc. Magic responds: In my opinion the difficulty level is 6/10
  • Larry asks: Many years ago I use to perform Joshua's 3 coin vanish with a flipper. I got annoyed replacing bands. This method may get me performing it again. When the coins are all nested, do they rattle; and talk while nesting, such that patter is needed to cover the noise? Also, are these Tango brand shells? (Haven't been a fan in the past.) Lastly, are the shells heads or tails?

    • 1. Vanishing Inc. Magic responds: When the coins are together, there is little to no rattling and talking. Without getting into exposure territory on here, you can send us an email at wizards@vanishingincmagic.com and we'll answer more in-depth for you.
  • Alonzo asks: Is there any difference between triad coins and the Tango Ultimate coin? I dont wish to buy the same trick twice.

    • 1. Jim answers: There are technical differences.

  • Joe asks: Hi guys, I don't suppose there is any chance that triad can be made with Australian coins ? Joe Kerlin in Melbourne Australia wyvernponds@iprimus.com.au

    • 1. Vanishing Inc. Magic responds: No plans for that at the moment Joe.
  • Martin S asks: Concerning the final vanish, using the watch – I'd be concerned about damaging the back of an Apple Watch. Does the vanish use the 'watch' side of the wrist (ie back of the hand) or the 'strap' side (the side of the wrist where you take a pulse)?

    • 1. Vanishing Inc. Magic responds: I use this with an Apple Watch and have had no issues. It uses the strap side for the vanish.
  • Steve asks: My watch band is tight and uses a strap; the watch in the video is springy. Is that going to be a problem?

    • 1. Vanishing Inc. Magic responds: It shouldn't be an issue. You might need to loosen up your watch band a little bit.
  • Warren asks: Apart from no magnets how does this differ from Todd Lassens Triple Threat ? Thanks

    • 1. Vanishing Inc. Magic responds: It's a totally different concept. But if you have a Triple Threat, it's unlikely you'd need this as well. e
  • Marie asks: Hello, what can we do when shells and coin do not separate without having let them fall ? I have tried the rounded-bottom glass with no success.

    • 1. Vanishing Inc. Magic responds: No classic palm is needed
  • Andres asks: Hi, Why so much difference in price between Amazon and you with this product?

    • 1. Vanishing Inc. Magic responds: Amazon versions are knock offs.
  • Nate asks: Hey guys! How thick is the coin when all three are nested together? Is it disguised well? Thanks

    • 1. Vanishing Inc. Magic responds: It's disguised very well, but obviously isn't examinable.
  • alex asks: I'm wondering what the difference is with Triad and the Triple Tango coins. I bought the triple tango coin a few months ago. Like the principle but am a little disappointed with it generally, and with the instructions from Tango especially. My question is that Triad coins seems to do a lot of the same thing, but how duplicative are they? What is the difference?

    • 1. Vanishing Inc. Magic responds: There's totally different. You know what the Tango set is, the Triad Coins are three nested turtles. There's no scale to answer your "how deceptive are they" question, but the trailer is honest and shows some close shots. The routine you get, which Josh worked on for years, is quite brilliant - especially the vanish at the end. Hope that goes some way to answer you on the differences.
  • Chris asks: There’s references online (and one on here) to a UK version using the 10 pence piece. Will this be available again on here?

    • 1. Vanishing Inc. Magic responds: At the moment, there are no plans to re-make the 10p version.
  • Carl asks: Is a production of the coins taught as well, or is it just the vanishing sequence?

    • 1. Vanishing Inc. Magic responds: Yes, the whole routine is taught in full detail.
  • Daniel asks: What happened to the protective storage unit? Says it comes with one in ad copy and shows a plastic storage case but all I got was a cardboard sleeve which isn't going to last long.

    • 1. Daniel answers: Thanks savino, unfortunately the cardboard just slides off and the coins fall out. Wish they would update ad copy on this one as isn't protective at all
    • 2. Savino answers: The cardboard holder is the current storage unit—it has foam to hold the nested gimmick.

  • Stanley asks: This might sound stupid, but what are the angles like on this? Can there be someone behind me, or does it work like normal turtles?

    • 1. Vanishing Inc. Magic responds: You do not want anyone behind you.
  • Alan asks: Am I right in thinking that both turtles are modified compared to say Hopping Halves, making them easier to use in when not in the pocket?
