Message: Posted by: levitate (Aug 5, 2004 09:17PM)
I was wondering if anyone knew where I could buy a good qualtiy CS coin, with a quarter on one side and a gold dollar on the other. If anyone knows a site, please post or PM me.

Thanks,

Michael

I may be wrong but isn't a gold dollar slightly larger than a quarter?!

I asked the folks at Sasco to make me a few c/s type coins and they did a great job.

English Half Pennies should fit. Any of the good coin makers can do it for you.

Well, Mr. Biro, I have been reading your posts all week and I have learned ALOT. But this time I can let you know that english (or other variety) half pennys are smaller than the Susan B. or Sacagawea dollars. I just checked. So the penny/dollar combination WONT work. The dolllars are both the same size. And a quarter is smaller than the penny. I have a small box of all different coins here that I have been collecting for about a year. I stop in the coin shop from time to time and pick up something interesting from the foreign coin box. They are usually very inexpensive.
God Bless,
Lauren

English Half Pennies are just a bit larger than US Quarters. When cut down to size, they look okay.

Thanks J.T. I didn't hold the coins together, but I had seen someone that had one made, but didn't know they needed a bit of "work" -- which is what the good coin makers can do.

Not only that. I just learned that you can make a coin BIGGER around with a special machine. This is one way to make an expanded ].

Not exactly what you are looking for, but there is a gaffed coin called "Miracle Coin" that is a sac dollar magnetic ] with a magnetic (or steel) quarter/sac insert that nests magnetically into the sac dollar ]. You can read a more comprehensible description of it at the magic warehouse site.

Cheers,

There is a special machine that makes a coin bigger? Please tell us more about that Mr. Biro!! I have never heard of anything like that! I always wondered how they made the coins bigger for those special props.
God Bless
