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.

    Ben asks: Can vanishing provide a normal matching half dollar for a small additional price, so you can end clean?

    • 1. Daren answers: I asked this last night and they just pointed me in the direction of searching for it on their site, the only half dollars I can find are the ones they sell in a block of 20
    • 2. Randy answers: I've bought many, many Kennedy half dollars at my local bank. They are pretty readily available if you keep asking.
    • 3. Chris answers: You can't assume your local bank will have half dollars. I once (in one day) went to 8 different banks locally and (between them) they had *one* half dollar, not a roll, just one single half dollar. They explained that they don't keep them in stock, because no one around here (Sacramento CA) circulates them.
    • 4. Randy answers: I guess NYC (or my branch of Bank of America in NYC) has more of them. I've gotten at least 50 Kennedy half dollars from them over the last few years (for a miser's dream routine). Once or twice they even asked me, "How many do you want?" So I would recommend at least asking your local branch (or branches) every time you visit just to check.
    • 5. Randy answers: If your local bank doesn't have them, and you only want a couple to add to your set, I just ran an eBay search and they currently offer Kennedy halves for $1.48 with free shipping ("Buy it Now" option), or possibly less if you bid on the auctions that start at 1 cent: https://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_from=R40&_nkw=kennedy+half+dollar&_sacat=0&_sop=15&rt=nc&LH_All=1&_udhi=7
    • 6. Ryan answers: Hate to recommend any other site.... but Ellusionist sells individual halves, in their accessories section, I get mine from Woodforest banks, located In Walmart. They still circulate halves, gold dollars, and 2$ bill you just have to ask

    • 2. Craig answers: I think Dave Neighbors answer is "yes." See above.
    • 3. Chris answers: This is an enhanced (extra gaff) CSB, but not in the way (center plug) that the "Chinese Bit" is gaffed.

  • 10.

    Chris asks: To be clear, as I think people are misunderstanding this, is it correct to state that this is not a "standard" CSB set. Carpenter's Coin's includes an additional gaff, not included in standard CSB sets.

    • 1. Vanishing Inc. Magic responds: That is correct.

    John asks: I understand that Carpenter Coins are more than a regular CSB set. But before I take the plunge and order. I’d like to know, in addition to the routine supplied, are there other routines that can be done with this particular coin set? Thanks all.

    • 1. John answers: Sorry all. Question 8 answers my query!

    • 1. Vanishing Inc. Magic responds: There's a silver, copper and brass coin. And a special extra gimmick.
    • 2. steve answers: Perhaps I was not clear. I'm interested in a Walking Liberty, Ben Franklin, or pre-clad JFK coins used in this set.

    Stephen asks: The description suggests the chinese coin matches those in Charming Chinese Challenge. My CC Challenge is dollar size and my understanding is that Carpenter Coins are half-dollar size? Have I misunderstood or is the Carpenter Coin Set available in Dollar size (would be delighted if it is!) Thanks. Stephen

    • 1. Philip answers: The description says "in the same style" which I think suggests same design. But it is clear this is half dollar size set. So I presume the same visual style but smaller.

    Robert asks: OK you say a beginner can do this. Is there palming involved. for someone who does not do coin magic how much practice will this take??

    • 1. Vanishing Inc. Magic responds: There is no palming involved, the gimmick does the work for you. You would just need to practice the routine, he moves are not difficult. I can't really say how long it would take for you to learn the routine, but most people can learn it quite quickly.

Customer reviews for Carpenter Coins

Hank

Got mine at Magifest this year. What a coin set! And Carpenter is solid too. Good routine. Like this a lot. Cheap as well I thought but I'd never seen a set with the extra gimmick on sale before.

 

Sam

YES!!!!!! Finally got my hand on this set. Vanishing Inc. released a small number at Magifest. I've been waiting for years for VI to do another coin set. Triad was great. So is this. GET IT! :D

 

Sam

Great set. Good price. Great instructions from Mr. Carpenter himself. *****

 

Antonio M.

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!

 

Daren

Love the set, very nicely made together with a cracking routine! Buy it!!

 

Daren

Love this so much I have ordered a second set as a spare

 

Darrin

Honest review
The coin set is very well made his routine is very good. The video that you download or use the vanishing app is excellent. A beginner can do this and if you are coin worker like myself from the 80’s You probably have the gimmick and several CSB sets. I can tell you that doing CSB routines is amazing to the audience. You can expand your routine with a few extra items. My personal routine that I use can go from just a few minutes to over 15 minutes. There are many routines out there. My only suggestion is get the set learn the routine then make the routine your own.

 

Steven

A standard CSB set has become increasingly difficult to get. This is a very nice set for the money.

I think the best routine in recent years for the CSB is Jindui Nishikawa's "3 Coin Trick With A Shot Glass", from the June 2014 Genii. It requires a glass, but the additional item is part of this set. It's worth a look.

 

Chris

The gaffs here are very nice and it's great to get the extra gaff not included in standard Copper/Silver/Brass sets, which can be used for many other routines.

The teaching is fine, but could be a bit more detailed. That being said, I'm pretty new to coin magic and was able to get it all worked out with a bit of focused practice.

Jack's routine is excellent, which adds even more value to this nice set. Highly recommended.

 

Francis

Positive: The gimmick is really well made. Great value for money. Nice routine.

Negative: The teaching is too rushed. It would have been helpful to have close up/over the shoulder explantions of some of the moves. There really is no excuse for saying , 'I hope you can see this' when a simple replay would have shown that actually, we can't fully see what he is doing.

 

steve

The routine sold with this set is okay, but nothing special. The coins are just okay too. Owning a Lassen TT has spoiled me. That said, these coins do the work nicely, I'm just being a snob.

David Neighbors has some routines for this. If you want to see how far you can take it, look up the Luis Piedrahita Cerebus routine on YouTube.
