Check it out HERE: https://www.ellusionist.com/quiver-coin-holder.html

P.s. This is exactly how Kim and our staff at E carry 'The Silver Edge' coins. So if you have this set, it makes a perfect match.

Been looking for something like this for a while, think this will work perfect for me. Order is in.. I'll post my thoughts when I receive it.

Hello guys! It's Kelvin Chow here.

This is designed to fit up to 4 half dollars. Despite its minimal design, it offers good protection to your gimmick coins(even when dropped!).

It is a slick looking coin holder that can turn into a holdout when needed.

With the special design, you can steal multiple coins SILENTLY.

You guys can check out the trailer below:

Any idea how efficient this would be with Canadian coins as they are attracted to magnets? Would the coins still slide out easily? Kelvin - have you tried it out with Loonies or Toonies?

Would this be too small to hold Morgan dollars?

The idea of a few $100 worth of coins/gimmick hanging on my belt is a NO go.I do like the item and the price is right.The video is fantastic. Looks to me more of a utility/carrier. The idea of hanging it on the outside of pockets though...... awaiting reviews

Hi Ed!

While this is magnetic, the holding is done by the Rubberband.

As long as the coin is roughly half dollar size, the holder will be able to hold them.

Kelvin

This is designed for half dollar, but if the reception is good, we may develop a Morgan version for coin lovers out there!=)

I am totally with you on this one. I like the looks of the product and would happily use it for clad Kennedys. But not for my barber halves. A rubberband just doesn‘t feel save enough. IF they slip out, they are gone.

Hi Rick!

The holder is designed to protect the coins. Once the holder is closed, the coins are actually secured from all 4 sides and not possible for the coins to slip out.

We have testing this product in close circle for over 2 years now and haven't had any issue on dropping coin yet. =)

You can check out the detail view below to see what the holder does and how it works:

I'm not too worried about the coins falling out; my concern is switching the use of the coin holder (e.g. from holding 4 coins to 2 coins).
I assume, after holding 4 coins for some time the elastic will stretch and not hold a less number of coins from that point on.
Regardless; I am looking forward to receiving mine and will put it to the test!

Obviously I can't speak to the longevity since they've just been released. It feels like very good quality elastic, and it's quite snug, so I think it would take a long time to 'wear out' as it were.

Putting the super strong magnetic coins in and getting them out is no problem. They are quite snug under the elastic. I will note - the band that wraps around to secure the bottom of the coins, because it is magnetic, can be repelled by the magnetic coins. Make sure they are the right orientation.

That being said, in the correct orientation, I actually tried to get the coins to dislodge by swinging it around and otherwise snapping it in ways that would pop it out - they stayed quite solidly held in place. I'd be pretty confident that this would hold a set of coins securely indefinitely.

Just got mine today. Here are answers to some questions above and my observations:

1. 4 coins and a shell fit fine. Nalf dollar. 5 Fit with a shell.
2. Switching from 1 rto 3 to 5 is no problem. Band is very tight and strong. Well constructed.
3. You don't walk around with this all day with the coins exposed. It is designed to be used as a holdout for a moment. As a keeper for all the time. So you cradle your priceless coins in this and keep it in your pocket. When you are going to perform, you pull it out in advance and filp it open in one hand. Insert it backwards as the videos show, into a pocket or waistband. Steal what and when you want. Then return the coins to it for safe keeping in your pocket.
4. I am using this right now just for one shell. I go to pocket and hand out the "antique" coins . . . while they are looking it is an easy cop of the shell to add bacl to the handed out coins as they are returned to my hands.
5. A SILVER DILLAR AND SELL FIT PERFECTLY! NO MODIFICATION NEEDED. Two or more do not.
6. IF Quiver makes this in silver dollar size I would buy 5 more and these would hold all my coin sets. The colors are great as you can get multiples and keep certain sets in colors. Instantly know what you're grabbing.
7. No issue with mag coins from canada or shim/mag coins.
8. Advantage for a lot of OTHER effects BECAUSE it is magnetic. Vanish a lighter, knife or rolled up bill with a shim in it and you can ditch to this device just stuck inside your back pocket. Mag strength is great.

Verdict - simple, clean, useful, elegant, well finished. Will protect and serve (your coins or retrive mag items/shimmed items as needed.

10/10 Stars. I just ordered 3 more for everyday carry.

I hope this helps you all here!

I'm eagerly awaiting my order. This combined with some of Kanoia's work sounds super fun. I hope they make a dollar sized version

I just got mine in from Ellusionist today. The idea is great, but the craftsmanship needs a lot of work, as the elastic already started to rip after putting in four Kennedy halves.

So my initial concern has come to life in playing with this.
I have only held 2 coins in the band for a couple days; and now, it will not hold a single coin, which to me is a problem.

@kelvinkind - is this something that happened during your testing too? Or is this an issue with mine?

A simple redesign would have the tab that's sticking out tucked into the pocket, facilitating a cleaner steal.

My issues are with it open in the ready position. Closed it's fine, but if I have 2 coins and just want one.. the other falls out :/

Hi there,

We actually did test for that. If you look at the position of the rubberband, it is slightly below center on the leather patch. This way, the rubber band would be tighter on bottom, and should provide enough fiction to hold one coin.

I just tested the one I have been using, and it seems to hold.

I am sorry you are experiencing this issue with your holder. Can you kindly pm me a photo? I will try my best to sort this out for you.

Best,
Kelvin

In the open position, with the 'tail' in the get ready position (to grab the coin as you show in the video) the band is off center towards the top, not bottom. I have sent you a PM. Thanks for the help.
