Copper/Silver/Brass is a classic magic effect for good reason: it's a highly entertaining and deceptive coin routine where three different coins vanish and re-appear under apparently impossible conditions. It has been a feature effect in the repertoires of many of the best close-up magicians for decades. But how can you improve a masterpiece?
Jack Carpenter has with his "Carpenter Coins" set, produced by Vanishing Inc. In this routine, you start with a Mexican Centavo, an imitation Chinese coin and a half dollar and make each one cleanly jump from your pocket back to your hand. Then, two of the coins transpose with another, before finally all vanishing and re-appearing in your pocket. In all, there are seven moments of killer magic in just two or three minutes!
You receive a coin set consisting of precession-made coin gimmicks (using real coins) in a handy carrying case. And if you already perform our Charming Chinese Challenge, or No Sense, you'll be pleased to know that the coin is made in the same style, by Vanishing Inc.
"Carpenter Coins" has all the hallmarks of a perfect routine for walkaround and close-up performers: you end the routine totally clean, it resets instantly, has no angle restrictions, and contains many visual, deceptive moments of magic. Best of all, the routine is easy to do and you learn every move in Jack Carpenter's detailed video explanation.
"This trick has been my “secret menu” coin trick ever since Jack taught it to me a couple of years ago. And I don’t DO coins. It’s easy to learn, it’s strong as hell, and it knocks a lay audience on its butt. … And I don’t DO coins!"Antonio Cabral
Jack's routine stems from the work of Jim Boyd, David Neighbors, John Mendoza, Jim Boyd and many more.
