If you have a personal library of magic books, certain books are essential. [i]Rubinstein Coin Magic[/i] is one of them. If only as a reference work, every library should have a copy.

If, however, you are at all interested in coin work specifically, this book is a must-have. There's so much varied material between its covers, it's mind blowing. Just check out the table of contents listed above. The material is so well organized. The writing is clear, and the photographs compliment the text beautifully.

There is not much more I can say that hasn't already been said by many others. It is an instant classic.

[If you plan on ordering a copy, I strongly urge you to order it directly from the author, Michael Rubinstein. For the first printing, Michael took the orders and picked up the books from the printer, packaged them and sent them off, competently done, all without a hitch. (My copy was packaged in a cardboard box, which was important to me, because in the past I've had books sent to me which were packaged in bubble-wrap-lined envelopes and the books were damaged in-route.)]

[i]Rubinstein Coin Magic[/i]: a book for the ages!
Message: Posted by: Michael Rubinstein (Jul 15, 2020 10:20AM)
Thanks Ray! The book ships from the printer in 2 days, and I will have them before they hit the stores. So now's the time to order to get yours first, along with a special FREE gift not offered anywhere else!!

I have been working on Tallahassee Jumping Coins, from chapter twelve. It is a great three coins across, in the hands coin masterpiece. I love the fact that you use only three regular coins, so this can be done at any time without a set up.
Great Book Dr. Rubinstein!
Message: Posted by: Michael Rubinstein (Jul 16, 2020 02:48PM)
Thank you Geoff, glad you like the routine! I love the patter line about the fast food, and that you can apply it to a CSB routine. I also like the logic of doing the secret move after the fact for the second coin! Plus, the last coin appearing in the spectator's hand is always strong. It is my impromptu go to coins across because of the ability to do it with just 3 coins.
Thanks for mentioning that routine! The reprint ships from the printer tomorrow, so excited to have a new batch made up! If anyone is interested in a signed copy and exclusive FREE GIFT, be sure to shoot me an email at rubinsteindvm@aol.com

For those waiting for magic dealers to get the pre-ordered books, they will be arriving at the distributor this week, then either ship first to the dealers, or they will drop ship for them. Either way, the books are arriving soon! The ones ordered from me all went out, only have a few left!

Some of the guys talking about Rubinstein Coin Magic. Back on the shelves, and available at your favorite magic dealer, AND I STILL have a few that I can sign (and they come with an exclusive free gift!!). After these, I probably won't be getting any more to sign, so last chance before these babies are GONE!!

Anyone happen to read the review by Francis Menotti in the August issue of Genii? Here is a quote:
"It is bound to become a new classic text on the subject of numismatic conjuring."
I only have one left available to sign, and I am told supplies of the reprint are almost gone at the distributor, so be sure to get yours today!
Message: Posted by: Michael Rubinstein (Aug 4, 2020 03:23PM)
Last book on hold, pending payment. But you can still find them at your favorite magic dealer! Penguin and Vanishinginc both sold out this morning, but got in some more. Not too many left at the distributor, so buy 'em where you can!
Message: Posted by: Michael Rubinstein (Aug 5, 2020 10:15AM)
My copies are all gone, and the reprint is selling out fast all over. I may have to print again soon. Wow!! Hope you all were able to get your hands on one. If anyone is looking for stuff used in the book (USA only), feel free to shoot me an email at rubinsteindvm@aol.com . If anyone has questions about the material, feel free to send it my way as well! Thank you all for your interest in my material!!

Got a couple nice emails:
From W.L -
"Hi Mike, the book made it in on Friday but I haven’t been able to put it down. Thank you for the penguin dvd! Having lots of fun with the ROPS move. Another great book from a master of the art." 

From W.A. -
"Hi Dr. Rubinstein,
The book is a marvel!  A wonder!  The content is beyond excellent, and the appearance and production are first rate.
THANK YOU!"

Since copies are dwindimg at the distributor, I managed to snare two more copes that are available for signing. All come with a special FREE GIFT! For ordering information, shoot me an email at rubinsteindvm@aol.com

Thank you to everyone who wrote me such nice emails, and to the people who took the time and posted those wonderful reviews! In only a few months, over 1000 people took the plunge and invested in Rubinstein Coin Magic! As Craig Petty said, the book is massive, and it will take years to fully digest the material contained inside. I still have one copy left available to sign, and the special free gift offered now has a $30 retail value. Hit me up if interested, and feel free to post any queations about the material here. Thanks again for your interest in my lifetime of work!!
Message: Posted by: Michael Rubinstein (Aug 17, 2020 09:39AM)
Well, it happened. I just sold out the remaining stock of the reprint at the distributor. My guess is that it will once again be sold out everywhere in the next few weeks. Looks like I need to reprint again! As such, I will be able to get more copies for signing in around 4-6 weeks, for those who keep asking me. But if you want to get the book now, I would get it while it is still available at your favorite magic dealer!
Message: Posted by: Michael Rubinstein (Aug 20, 2020 07:12AM)
Once again, supplies are dwindling at the dealers. Have you gotten your copy yet? I love it when others post how much fun they are having with my book! Take a look!

This book ranks up there with the best. It rivals both David Roth and Al Schneider's books. It is easy to follow almost like reading a Harry Lorayne book. I've read through most of it and it is one of those books that I will read again right away.

I think I read thru mine almost 3 times before I propped it up on my book board and started working thru with “coins in hand”. Found out right off the bat that I have been doing the ROPS wrong for years. So much better and smoother now that I have worked thru it. As I said in my initial review (in the review forum), I think this will replace Bobo as the “go-to” for beginners who are serious.
Message: Posted by: Michael Rubinstein (Aug 28, 2020 10:01AM)
I have just been informed that the book will likely be sold out everywhere in the next two weeks. I will eventually meet the continual demand by printing up more books, but I advise that you guys snap up a book now, or you will need to wait a while till it becomes available again with yet another printing. And who wants to wait, when you can get a treasure chest of coin magic right now? Still to be found at Penguin, Vanishinginc, Stevens and more, but soon you will need to do an internet search to find one available.
Anyone played yet with the Rubinstein Put-Back Move or Flash vanish? Anything else you played with?

I love it when people not only read through the material in Rubinstein Coin Magic, but actually learn to perform it! I hope you enjoy watching this as much as I did!

My book is still available at dealers, and I plan on getting some more at the end of September that I will again be able to sign (had to reprint once again since the demand is still great and some dealers have already sold out!!).

Hi! I just recorded a mashup of three items from my new book, RUBINSTEIN COIN MAGIC. I wanted to extend the coins through the table routine contained in the book, so I first added a production with ideas found in the book. I also added a multi coin ending to the routine (a variation of the one in the book, using a different move also taught) and the ending from another routine to get the finished product. That's the beauty of my book, you can mix and match and create your own sequences, or use the tools and create tour own. My book is almost sold out at the dealers, although there are still some available at Penguin and Vanishinginc. I did reprint the book again so it won't run out, and in fact am getting in a limited supply of the new reprint in two weeks. These will be available for signing, and of my books come with a special FREE GIFT as well! If interested, I am taking pre-orders now so send me an email at rubinsteindvm@aol.com
In the meantime, enjoy this mashup!

Review on the Stevens Magic Emporium site:
antonnova77 – July 7, 2020

A book that is a true masterpiece. All the routines are well written, excellent details, and performed to perfection. A classic the day it was released and sold out just as fast. An investment for any lover of quality coin magic. A long awaited fantastic book.

Watch this space, putting up a new video later today

Happy to share this routine from my book, Rubinstein Coin Magic. Since this is a modular routine, I had several phases. This version removed the middle phase from the book, but borrowed from another routine (Triple Play) to extend the first phase. Otherwise, it's the same. Anyone who already has the book can inquire about the changes. Hope you enjoy it, I will have a limited amount of books available for signing in around a week, that will come with a FREE GIFT, only available with the books I sell. For ordering information, shoot me an email at rubinsteindvm@aol.com

Hope you guys enjoyed the routine. Penguin and Vanishinginc have just SOLD OUT (that's the first edition AND the first reprint in only 3 and 1/2 months!!), but I will get in the NEW reprint on the 28th, a full 10 days ahead of the supplier and the other dealers. So if you haven't bought a copy yet, don't worry, reinforcements are coming!! Hit me up if you want a signed copy, and that special free gift (this is the last time I am reprinting for the next few years, so I will only be able to sign the ones being sent to me now) !

Update: due to a shipping glitch, I will be getting the first supply of books (all sold) on the 28th, which will be signed and go right out. I will be getting the remaining limited supply of books on Oct.8, which are still available for signing, so if you want to get a signed copy and FREE GIFT, shoot me an email at rubinsteindvm@aol.com
In the meantime, I haven't heard from anyone about material they want me to post from the book. If you want to see more stuff, please head to my YouTube channel, Rubinstein Coin Magic and see the playlist with the same name. I got a ton of stuff on there you may never have seen. Soon I will post a video of techniques found in the book for those interested. Again, let me know if there is something you have interest in seeing. For now, here is a vanish that did not make it into the book because I did not put any of my old material into the book that I no longer use. It can be found on my Knockout Coin Magic DVD from the 80s, but it is interesting to see. I will put up a video of techniques very soon. Here is that vanish, enjoy!

I was just interviewed by Craig Petty, should be posted in less than two weeks. It was fun to do, and I give a lot of coin magic advice. My book will also be reviewed by Rick Holcomb soon on his video channel, so watch for that as well. Later I will try to put up some more techniques from the book. I will probably start where I left off, with techniques from Chapter 3, so keep watching (and let me know if there is something in particular you want to see! Someone commented on my Instagram @rubinsteindvm that seeing the techniques really help to understand the flow). My last group of books is on its way to me from Murphy’s, so still available for those who want a signed copy!! For those who have the book, I do have some coin stuff that can be used for some of the routines in the book, so hit me up if you are interested in what is still available. Will try to post that technique video later today!

Books should be here in 2 days, and I still have some that haven't been reserved! Hit me up if you would like ordering information, and be sure to let me know if there is anything from the book you have interest in seeing. More techniques? Another routine?

Have you been SPELLBOUND by coin magic? I have! If you ask nicely, I may show some of the techniques in Chapter Four! And if you don't ask, maybe I will do it anyway. Watch this space...

In a world torn by hatred, fear, and strife, one man arises from the ashes with a single goal. Which is why he was cut from his soccer team. But I digress....Here is a collection of some of the Spellbound moves taught in Chapter Four of Rubinstein Coin Magic. I am getting in a limited supply of books on Oct.8, that will be available for signing, and come with a special FREE GIFT! If you would like ordering information, shoot me an email at rubinsteindvm@aol.com
In the meantime, I hope you enjoy this collection of techniques!

All books arrived TODAY and all orders went right out. Still have some left, so hit me up if you haven't ordered yet! When they go, I won't get more in unless I have to reprint again, so if you want a signed copy and that free gift, drop me a note! And, let me know if there is anything you want me to film from the book. Thinking of putting up some additional techniques soon.

From Martin on the Vanishingincmagic.com site:

"While I’ve just begun reading the comprehensive Rubinstein Coin Magic tome, it has already reinspired my interest in coin magic. Clearly written & illustrated, look forward to continuing the journey. Its hefty size also makes it a useful workout tool."

(Love that last line, mailed the book package weighs 5 lbs 3 oz!)

Lions and Tigers and Bear, Oh my! No, I mean, Counts, and Passes, and Switches, and more! Yes, MORE TECHNIQUES from Rubinstein Coin Magic!! How many do you need to see before deciding you need this book? If you go to my YouTube channel, Rubinstein Coin Magic, and look at the playlist of the same name, you can see many more routines and stuff about the book. I don't have too many left, but if you would like a SIGNED COPY and exclusive FREE GIFT, drop me an email at rubinsteindvm@aol.com and get ordering information before they are all gone! In the meantime, here are some counts, passes, switches, and more! Enjoy!!

I already put the PH (Pseudo Himber) Count into one of the techniques montages, but decided to perform it again at a slightly slower speed. I think this makes the count look more elegant than casual. What do you think?

Still a few available for signing, be sure to get in touch if you haven't gotten yours yet!

Good morning! Later today, the interview I did with Sleightly Unusual's Craig Petty should be up. I discuss my book, my philosophy of coin magic, the R.O.P.S move, and even perform a few things. So be sure to watch! With Monday a holiday, I will be sending out all orders this afternoon. Still have some books left, so shoot me an email at rubinsteindvm@aol.com for ordering information!

I'm working my way through Mike's great coin book, Rubinstein Coin Magic. So much great original material. I love Ch. 4 with all those cool Spellbound moves and changes. You have to try the Strike Change. It's eye candy. The step-by-step instructions are enhanced by the gorgeous close-up photos of the master's hands. The Wild Coin chapter is exceptional. Coins Across is a favorite of mine and Mike teaches you his best. Highy recommended. Get a copy before now before it's out of print and selling on Ebay for hundeds of dollars.

This is a must have book! There is a multitude of Coin sleights, including Steals, Loads, switches and many foundational techniques. All are then beautifully routined in a magical way. Mr. Rubinstein has graciously put up many short videos demonstrating/highlighting some moves in the book.
This book should be on your magic bookshelf from the beginner to the advanced Coin Conjurer!

Only five books left! Thanks for your continued support. Be sure to hit me up soon at rubinsteindvm@aol.com, if you are interested in a signed copy of my book, and that special FREE GIFT (out of the Penguin and At the Table DVDs I already gave, but got something new that you're gonna like!!). After 3 reprints I won't be needing to reprint again for a long while, so this will be your last chance to snare one of these signed books! In the meantime, I refilmed a few techniques that should have been performed better, and added a couple of new ones. I rearranged them and put up a montage that is over eight minutes. Let me know if there is anything else you want to see! In the meantime, enjoy (and turn up the volume for the click pass techniques so you can both see and hear how they sound!

Hi! I have four routines in my book for putting four coins through the table. There are two routines to be performed standing up, and depending on the coin set I have with me (four silver coins, or a copper, silver, and brass coin) I will usually do one of these two. The remaining two routines are sitdown versions.
I have only a few books left that are avaliable for signing, and come with a special FREE GIFT. If you would like ordering information, shoot me an email at rubinsteindvm@aol.com .
In the meantime, please enjoy this version of Stand Up Four Coins Through the Table, using four silver coins!

Hi guys Doug here!

Just about everything Doctor Mike has recommended, I have bought! I remember when I first became familiar with Doctor Mike. I believe it was roughly 2002 or 2003. Mickey Silver sent me a VHS tape of his retention vanish. I was so overwhelmed I had to know how that was done. And I wanted to learn it backwards and forwards. Someone and I don't remember who, sent me a video tape of Dr Michael Rubenstein. I remember I immediately bought the set of DVDs entitled Encyclopedia of Coin Sleights. That, by the way, is a highly recommended 3-Dvd set!

When the New York Coin Magic Seminar 16 volume DVD series came out, I believe they were $34.95 a piece. That's over $500 and of course way out of my price range! Then I remember Dr Michael offering the set for $250, very tempting but still too much. I'm on a retirement pension. Doctor Mike just let me know Meir Yedid is selling the set for $150! So you know I jumped on that! Then Doctor Mike recommended a set of Japanese coins with a shell, from the same site, so I sprung for that! And now the book! And the book came with a free gift! Actually three free gifts! A DVD of Doctor Mike from 1986 entitled Creative Coin Magic Lecture Notes 1986. Then I noticed a quarter and a half dollar inside of the DVD slip. If you've ever seen Dr Mike's effect called Fusion, it comes in a quarter and a half dollar version. Both were included with the book!! That is one of the best tricks I have ever done! The reactions I got every time! Fusion is one trick you must do if you are a coin worker! Instant reset and very quick presentation!

You know one thing I love about this big heavy book, is the fact that it lays flat when you open it up to whatever page. The quality of this book is incredible! I had to save for it but it was worth it!

Doug

Thanks again Doug, and to everyone who has taken the plunge and bought Rubinstein Coin Magic!!
