As the tale goes, the hobos of the Great Depression used to spend excruciatingly long hours, or even days, about trains moving from one place to another. They would bide their time by carving their signature imagery into the famed "Buffalo Nickels", turning them into exclusive works of art to be traded, and more importantly, recognized for their craftsmanship and prestige within this subculture. The Hobo Nickel originators are now famed for creating, not just a modified coin, but an exclusive, sculpted work of art. If you held one of these coins, it was your key to the underground.

The Grifters coins are imagined reality based on the legacy of the Hobo Nickels of the early 1900s. With an antique style, patina-silver finish, the Grifters have been handworn in the Murphy's manufacturing lab to reduce 'talking' and increase the glide that many top coin men cherish. Grifters have a fine-milled edge for stable gripping and have been shaped and weight matched to the specifications of a US Kennedy Half Dollar so that most coin workers can be immediately familiar.

  • Antique silver-patina finish 
  • Finely milled edges for best handling and noise reduction 
  • Hand-worn surface for smoothness and glide 
  • Scuff and scratch resistant, built for toughness 
  • Matched weight and dimensions of a Kennedy Half Dollar

Included with the package are seven classic beginning coin effects and several handling techniques that are perfect for taking your first step into coin magic.

Grifters are your tokens of access to a hidden world and accepted by only those who know... "Fallaces sunt rerum species".

Customer reviews for Grifters



Love these coins! I hope you get more in stock soon. The instructional video was also really well made.



The design of this coin is really nice. One thing I will say is that they are thicker than a Kennedy half. That is not a problem for me but I just want to put it out there. These coins are great for storytelling magic. The video is well taught by Branden Wolf. It should be noted that the video contains basic but essential coin work. It is not what you see in the trailer for the coin. But overall, great quality coins with strong mills
