I'm still looking for jumbo loonies/toonies. Maybe now that our dollar is stronger than yours, they will look into that. Smile

Laugh all you want, little do you know that the only currency accepted at the New York Coin Seminar 5 will be the Official David Roth Palming Coin. Bigger than even the US silver dollar and more valuable than any puny Canadian coinage, "the Roth" as it is known not only dwarfs the Ross Bertram palming coin, but it will do something no Canadian coin has ever done--it will decide who pays for the round of drinks.

You'll just have to get your hands on one to see how it does that. But you've been warned.
Is THAT a PALMS OF STEEL 5 Banner I see? YARRRRGH! Please visit The Magic Bakery

FLASH: At the Seminar, we will allow attendees to showcase one of their effects and, if desired, get input from the hosts. It could be a great learning tool for anyone wanting to improve an effect, or just see how the process works in making the routine stronger. And if the effect is really, really good....well, find out at the Seminar! Some surprises are just worth waiting for. The Roth coin is a real souvenir and a must for any coin worker. They are only found with David, or through Fantasma.

Due to technical problems, we have been unable to put a PayPal button on our website. People can still send us payment by logging onto PayPal and sending money to our account at coinchampions@aol.com . However, due to the inconvenience, we are extending the $250 admission fee. You can register as above at the special price or send us a check to the address on our website, in the newyorkcoinmagic address under this post. So, our glitch is your gain, and we hope you take advantage of this extended offer because when the seats are filled, they are filled.
Remember, our Seminar is EIGHT hours on day one, and you are invited to stay for DAY 2 for the Sunday filming of our DVD (which will go on all day)! And, of course, the usual new moves, tricks, workshops, hands on stuff, gift bag worth over $100, pizza lunch, a chance to present, see BERTINI for the FIRST time in the USA, and hang out with ROTH, RUBINSTEIN, GALLO, HARBOTTLE, and noted magicians like Marc DeSouza (his magic collection is amazing!), Dan Watkins, and you never know who else! Last time, Tim CONNOVER hung out with us and made a special presentation. You never know who will be there, but the only way to see it is to come! So, contact me with any questions, or sign up to register. There are already a bunch of people from the Café who will be there, so what about you?! Oct 27th will be here soon, and we hope to see you at Seminar 5!

Only three weeks to go before Seminar 5 takes place. There are several people I know from the Café who are going to be there, and there is still time to sign up, hang with your friends, see and learn some great magic, and be a part of a special DVD filming (which gives you two days for the price of one, never before done at one of our Seminars!).
For those of you who need to hear reviews, here are a few from Café members who attended the last Seminar:

Ed Hands: The four NY Coin Guru’s Messrs. Roth, Latta, Gallo, and Dr. Rubinstein held another Coin Seminar in the DeSouza's theatre outside of Philadelphia. I thoroughly enjoyed Seminar II. This one seemed even better! Seminar IV had a Copper Silver theme. I have loved Spellbound from almost my first taste of magic. Now, however, I appreciate a richer concept behind even this one Copper Silver effect.

The presentations were thrilling. The explanations masterful! During the explanations that generally followed the presentations, techniques (sleights, audience management, misdirection, etc.) were taught in as much detail as the attendees wished with time for questions. All four of the NY Coin Gurus were 'on stage' together. They smoothly interjected comments that clarified or expanded each others explanations. Succeeding performers made references to what had been presented previously. Instruction included thoughts and examples of how routines could be sequenced to hide methods and magnify effects. The event was well organized and reeked of class.

There were break-out sessions during which groups of three classmates sat down with each guru in turn. We were encouraged to ask any questions. Invaluable answers followed. The breakout schedule allowed time for individual instruction and feedback. After this attendee-driven portion of each breakout, the guru gave us a choice of things he had prepared to finish the time allotted to that breakout session. New routines were always among these offerings. These routines tended to include items better learned in smaller groups where suggestions could be given on the attendees’ grips, angles, etc.

Humor, camaraderie, and snacks (with the opportunity for more personalized interactions) kept the energy at a high level all day. Breaks and snacks were enjoyed in adjacent rooms, i.e. DeSouza’s library and magic museum!

As if the above were not enough, there were bonus performances by none other than Marc DeSouza, Timothy Conover (giving us coin performances from his renowned shows) and the legendary Paul Cummins (performing his famous coin routines and then teaching them)!

I can’t forget to mention terrific lecture notes and DVDs given away!

After more hours than we had been promised, we headed to dinner and several more hours of fun fruitful discussion. Frequently the seminars have concluded at a restaurant. On this occasion, in a generous gesture of appreciation, one attendee quietly picked up the entire tab for the group!! That is an indication of how happy I think we all were with this experience.

The day and evening were so packed with excitement that I fear that I am omitting mentioning critical features. The Café won't be available to me, however, for the next week. So, I must just jot down now my immediate thoughts in appreciation; and also in hope that I can move on now to lots of practice, and maybe even clean up some of these intruding coin-seminar flashbacks that keep springing to mind when I should be giving my full attention to things like driving or the wisdom tooth about to be jerked.

In summary, the seminar offered a wealth of fabulous information reflecting the New York Coin Guys' vast experience in not only creating magic, but also teaching it. The seminar organization (from venue to content to scheduling) made for a memorable event.

May Magic flourish and Seminars continue!

Deeply grateful thanks to the Guys, Bonus Performers, and Classmates, Ed

Eric Jones: For the 4th time, David Roth, Michael Rubinstein, Mike Gallo, and Geoff Latta got together to put the BEST one day seminar I've attended in my short time in magic. The lectures were AMAZING, the break-out sessions were INCREDIBLE, and the pizza was DELICIOUS!!!!! Marc Desouza held this event at his home for the second time, and I was lucky enough to attend both events. Both were a treat, but this one took the cake.

The overall theme of the seminar was copper/silver routines. While that was the overall theme, our questions and interests dictated what was actually covered. While the material covered was entirely too much to retain, I'll give away some of what I have learned from each of these excellent performers.

Roth was just as incredible in person as he is on his videos and DVDs. The Planet and The Tuning Fork routines were flawlessly performed. The Portable Hole, though I knew the routine, still fooled the heck out of me!!!!!!

Geoff Latta, watching him expertly handle the Okito box has sparked my interest in the subject. If you ever have an opportunity to see him work, ask him to perform the first thing he ever put in print....you'll be glad you did.....

Mike Gallo has a golden touch when it comes to coin magic that I truly appreciate. During a break-out session, he showed a 2 coin production and vanish utilizing a spectators hand that blew us away. Paul Cummins and I were just as impressed with his "anti-handwashing " show at the conclusion that left him apparently clean. Excellent work.

Michael Rubinstein impressed everyone in the room with his super clean version of Coins Through the Table, and the Spellbound routine he shared during the break-out that was performed in the show will have us up late nights working on some of those moves.

I've always been afraid of Deep Back Clip. I've never felt comfortable performing with it, but after watching Paul perform the Invisible Hand, I don't have a choice but practice until I get that *** thing down......lol Paul also performed two excellent Matrix routines, of which Top Billing with the dollar bills has got to be my favorite. He's smooth as silk.

From David Roth's personal collection, we were showed extremely rare footage of "old dead coin guys". Al Flosso, Al Goshman, Arthur Buckley, and John Ramsey gave us an insight as how these past masters performed some of their signature effects.

Last but not least, we had a super star of the magic underground in attendance. Timothy Conover, Master Magician/Mentalist, graced the stage and performed some of his signature work, including his famed Cylinder and Coins and his Bending Coins Routine. He even went so far as to explain his version of Tommy Wonder's excellent Sock Coins routine.

If you ever have an opportunity to attend one of these events.....please don't pass it by. What better way to perfect technique than to get personal instruction from the gurus in the field, The New York Coin Guys.....?

Bill Wells: Eric has covered most of the high points of NY CoinSeminar IV for which he, like myself, was a happy returnee since we both attended the first Philadelphia edition of the "Seminar". The fab four was again in great form and showed additional material from their vast repertoires that was not seen at CoinSeminar II. Of particular note - in fact, maybe even in the miracle category - was that Mike Gallo was actually there at the beginning at this Seminar and encountered absolutely no problems with the regular transportation systems. He discovered that the best way to get to Philly from Buffalo is to go to New York city and drive down with the rest of the "faculty".

Special guest Paul Cummins was outstanding and does the back clip better than anyone I have ever seen, including the creator of the back clip variation that he uses. Paul's coin magic was excellent and has stood the test of years of use in his performances. Add to this Paul's great teaching ability, and you have a super addition to the Seminar program. Paul also gave all the student's a copy of his excellent DVD "Up in Smoke" which contains all the material he performed and taught at the Seminar.

Attendee Tim Conover did an outstanding set, as Eric has already mentioned. He also did a special tribute to Al Goshman, which was flawless.
Add to this the films of coin magic greats; the outstanding handout package of lecture notes and DVDs - some of them exclusive to the Seminar only - the total value of which must have been over $200; and the seminar itself which didn't end until after 9 PM, and you truly had a bargain event for anyone interested in coin magic.

As Eric also mentioned, the half hour breakout sessions with each of the fab four was a real highlight. Being able to ask each of them for help and/or explanation on just about any aspect of coin magic was a priceless opportunity.
The venue in Marc DeSouza's beautiful home (or should I say "museum") only enhanced the overall excellence of the day. The constant supply of sodas, chips, and pretzels was embellished with a pizza break at mid afternoon. I even prevailed upon Marc to dig out and perform his "Werewolf Coins" just to hear him utter once again the immortal words of the old gypsy.

Another great edition of this outstanding ongoing effort to advance good magic. I look forward to the next edition!

So what are you waiting for? Sign ups will end when the seats have been filled. DON'T GET CUT OUT!!! Send us payment by mail, or log on to PayPal and send it to us through our account at coinchampions@aol.com . Log on to our newyorkcoinmagic website (see below for the address) to read more about us. Price is being held at $250, an even bigger savings! Roth, Rubinstein, Gallo, Harbottle, Bertini, and a lot of coin magic await you at SEMINAR 5!!!

At every Seminar we have had many magicians that come to enjoy the day, and hang out with the attendees. We have had many well known magicians, like Kainoa Harbottle, Curtis Kam, Andrew Goldenhersch, Tim Connover, and Dan Watkins, to name a few. I think Dan will be showing a new coin effect of his to the group this year, and as a special treat, health permitting, Steve Dusheck will be with our group. It will be a good chance to find out about the history and use of the many gaffs we use. But the Seminar is coming up fast, and in just a few short weeks, it will be only a wonderful memory. But there is still time to sign up and be a part of what is shaping up to be our best seminar yet! Here is a link to pictures and a video montage from Seminar 2 and 3. Hope to see you at Seminar 5!!!

With TWO WEEKS To go, still accepting last minute signups. Remember, we held the price at $250 for the latecomers, and invited all attendees to stay for the second day, to watch our DVD filming. More tricks, more routines, more demonstrations, discussions, more surprises than ever before. But you have to sign up to be a part, contact me NOW if you have any questions! But wait, don't just listen to me, here are a few more reviews, culled from the older posts on the Café. These refer to Seminar 3 Vegas. In the words of your fellow Café members:

Brian Cooper - I just got back from this event and I wanted to say that it was a great seminar and totally worth my time. The teacher to student ratio was incredible (14 students and 6 teachers) and even though it was scheduled to be 6 hours long it went to almost 9 hours of instruction/entertainment/hands on quality time. In addition to the main teachers of Mike Rubenstein, David Roth, Mike Gallo and Jeff Latta, we were treated to lessons from Curtis Kam and Kainoa Harbottle.

Each instructor started off by doing a short set of pet effects for us then taught a mix of basic, intermediate and advanced moves and routines. Later we broke up into groups of about 4 students and had 15-20 mins to work with each main instructor, to go over material presented, to have them critique our moves and effects and to ask any question about any topic we wanted. David Roth in particular shared many personal stories about the eccentricities of coin legends of the past and was very entertaining with them. We were also treated to parts of David's collection of video clips from greats such as Slydini, Vernon, Ramsay, and even Al Flosso.

My personal highlight was getting to see and work with Kainoa Harbottle. I have been working with his edge grip material for some time now and it was a treat to see this young creative coin genius at work and to get to ask him about the fine points of his original moves and routines. His new material using gaffs in addition to incredibly difficult sleights looks as awesome as his earlier work.

I came away with a ton of material in the form of lecture notes and DVD's produced for us students in addition to the the material I purchased from Curtis and Kainoa. I have a lifetime of material to work on so I better get practicing.

In closing, I wanted to give the NY Coin Seminar a huge thumbs up plug and can recommend it highly for folks of all skill levels from intermediate to super advanced (rank beginners would get more out of it by studying the classics first). If you ever get the chance to attend a future seminar by all means attend.

Pete Biro - I have heard nothing but raves... I was in part of it taking pictures and was blown away by their work.

Larry Davidson - I also attended the coin seminar in Vegas and highly recommend it to anyone, whether you're a beginner, intermediate, or advanced coin man. The presenters are some of the best in the world, they openly share their work, they tailor what they cover in the breakout sessions, and they provide attendees written and video materials that both reinforce some of what's taught in the seminar and provide additional information. The seminar is intense because it covers so much material, but at the same time it's a very relaxed and enjoyable atmosphere.

In my opinion, the price is cheap considering what you get. I don't think that there's a magician on the planet who couldn't benefit from attending the seminar!

David Nelson - I showed up late to the Coin Seminar because the airline bumped my seat 3 times before I could get a plane. Fortunately, I got there in time for the break out sessions which were probably the best part. Each teacher had a different thing to teach and he would tailor his lessons toward the group. They would generally open with a question about what we wanted to learn and then the session would cover that.

For our group David Roth shared a lot of stories about the greats that I really enjoyed. He also went into the shuttle pass in more detail than I had ever expected. I never realized how much thought and effort he put into that one move. No wonder it looks so good in his hands.

Mike Gallo, talked about a number of things including his variant handling of a Down's multiple coin vanish. In his hands it's got a great retention and looks very good but I had never been able to replicate it. Now, I've got the real work directly from him so I feel a lot more sure about using it. We also talked about some okito stuff and the gallo pitch.

Mike Rubinstein focused on retention of vision and ensured that everybody learned his ROPS technique. I think that if the rest of my group got nothing else they at least were able to walk out knowing how to do a retention vanish and Mike's ROPS move.

Beyond the hands on stuff that forced us to learn at least one or two things we had the lecture portion in which we saw all four of the main coin guys and Curtis Kam and Kainoa Harbottle do a lecture in which they demonstrated and taught stuff from their repertoire. Like a normal lecture you didn't necessarily learn the routine but you saw how it was supposed to look and saw the moves broken down so that you could more easily learn from the notes.

We also got to see some great footage from past coin masters. I was thrilled more than anything to get to see Buckley do his Fantasy in Silver act from Principles and Deceptions. I'm a huge fan of that book so it was amazing to see that act, that looks extremely difficult in the book, done well and done effortlessly. It also answered a couple of questions that I had about hand position and finger placement so now, knowing what it is supposed to look like, I can better learn from the book.

Overall, I agree that people of any level could get their money's worth but in order to get full value I'd recommend doing a couple of things: research before hand so you have questions you want answered; take good notes to supplement the lecture notes and videos you're given; and, of course, you have to practice the material after the seminar is over

That being said, I think the perfect person for this seminar is a guy who's learned the basic stuff already. These guys have spent years perfecting their sleights and routines so they have a lot to say that would be lost on an absolute beginner. It's true that you can learn the basics from this seminar and probably learn them better and faster than any other way but that takes time away from learning the more advanced stuff that these guys have to offer.

Also, if like me you've been doing this stuff for a while then you don't get as much new stuff. What I got were subtleties. Minor variances in handling and touches that made the sleights I do better. Was this worth it? Absolutely! But, I wish I'd been able to attend this seminar 10 years ago so I wouldn't have had to wrestle with Bobo's and Coin Magic so much to understand how to properly perform certain sleights.

Here's an example: I first learned Han Ping Chien for coins across from Bobo's and I did it badly. I played with it in the mirror until I felt like I did it pretty well. Then I found Coin Magic and learned a better handling from Geoff Latta. Now I do it pretty well but I wrestled with the move for years figuring out how to deal with moist fingers, how quickly to move and how to avoid sudden jerky motions that destroy the illusion of magic. I answered those questions with mirror work and practice but a few minutes speaking with Geoff during the seminar taught me how he handled certain issues. I saw how he did it and it helped me to reevaluate how I do this move. The same is true for Mike Gallo's multiple coin retention vanish. I did it pretty well but Mike does it better and now, after getting hands on training at the seminar, I do it better than I did before. The same is true for all the sleights they went over. I learned nothing new but I found a refinement that I incorporated into my handling for every sleight that they taught.

Despite the moves not being new to me, the refinements were extremely valuable but I also got a lot of new material to work on. The package included a set of lecture notes and a DVD from David Roth, 2 sets of lecture notes from Geoff Latta, 2 sets of secret lecture notes from Rubenstein in PDF format, a set of lecture notes from Mike Gallo and a couple of DVDs that I haven't even watched yet so I don't even know what's on them. From what I've read so far, the effects are of the highest caliber. I'm particularly fond of the Geoff Latta set of notes "7 the Hard Way" since, although the routines are difficult to execute the effects make it worth all the hard work.

I also want to thank the coin guys for me a copy of their Coins Across DVD. They gave it to me when I showed up because I had missed almost 4 hours of the seminar and they weren't sure how to make it up to me. Fortunately, the seminar went on for another 6 hours so I got the 6 hours seminar they promised on their website and the DVD is a bonus

All in all, I got more from this seminar than I have ever gotten from one single experience in the past and I'd highly recommend it to someone who really wants to learn more about coin magic.

So, what are you waiting for, only two weeks remain! See you at the Seminar!

Sounds awesome. I'll try to make it. I loved the Coins Across seminar. If nothing else, I'll get the DVD. What happened to Latta, though? It's just not the same without him on board.

Although Geoff won't be able to make it, we would love to have you with us for Seminar 5! Eight hours doesn't seem like enough when you think about a topic of this size. Write me if you have any questions!


++++++++++++++++++
To those of you who have not sent in your phone numbers, please email me your cell and home number. We will call you this weekend to go over final details. For those of you who are still on the fence, not too much time left to decide - email me with any questions.
For Jeff, all you need is to have a basic knowledge of coin sleights. Our material that will be presented can be done by anyone with a basic knowledge. Although, there will be a few difficult routines as well. Most, though, are commercial and will showcase strategies and technique, rather than difficult finger cringing moves that only a few can do. We also include a package of material (notes, DVDs, a lot of unpublished stuff) that will allow you to practice a lot of the material presented. Hope that answered your concerns, and we hope to see you at Seminar 5!

++++++++++++++++++

Only a week left, and there's still room for YOU! Come join the group, meet several Café posters, find out why Gallo raves about the pizza, and have the best day of coin magic you will EVER have (unless you were with us for one of the other Seminars!). Hurry, as Time is running out...tick, tick, tick, tick.........

Hey, I can always give you a call.....I'm a little more expensive than Mike, but my repertoire is a little more extensive.

Oh, wait, you're talking about coin magic. Sorry.....my bad.

Looking forward to seeing you there.......

Hey, John, it was great talking with you. I called most of the attendees, waiting to hear from the few I missed. Of the great group we have, there are at least six of your fellow Café posters, not including the guests and hosts. With only a few days left, we are still accepting reservations for the final spots. Last chance to get in on this. Email me if you have any questions, or send $250 to our PayPal account found elsewhere in this section. See you in a few days!!!

Oh, there'll be a lot of flying stuff/stuff flying, esp. if Mike Gallo is in one of his moods. I'll also be doing a very cool vanish I'm calling "Squishy" that really makes me happy.

Kainoa...are you trying to say something? And what do you mean by "one of my moods"? Inquiring minds want to know... I want to know what time the pizza is being served!!!

Last minute PayPal payments accepted until 7 PM EST on Fri. After that, I won't have Internet access anymore.
ONLY A FEW BOOKS LEFT AVAILABLE FOR SIGNING!!! First edition and reprint of Rubinstein Coin Magic sold out in RECORD TIME! The good news, though, is that I have reprinted the book once again (they are selling like hotcakes!), so there are enough for everyone!! As such, and for the last time, I again have a VERY limited supply of books left that I can sign. All come with a special FREE GIFT (worth over $25!) until supplies are gone, so first come, first serve! To order, be sure to send me an email at rubinsteindvm@aol.com . The books usually ship the day after the order is received (excluding weekends)!
RUBINSTEIN COIN MAGIC- The biggest book on coin magic since Bobo's Modern Coin Magic, and the most important since David Roth's Expert Coin Magic! Hardbound, 500 pages, 20 chapters of state of the art coin magic illustrated with 930 crisp photos! A contribution chapter from over 20 of the world's top coin magicians! This will be the book against which all future books on coin magic will be measured! Already called a Modern Classic!!
And if anyone (USA ONLY) needs some of the coin stuff used in the book, shoot me an email at rubinsteindvm@aol.com as I have some limited supplies of coins and props used on the book.

No beard this time. Never been called a puppet before, but okay. Smile

This time I might actually be presenting something on the DVD if the collective guys want it. Smile

Ah, another great happening has come and gone with lots of fun magic, a really great group of workers, and more pizza and chips than I've eaten in the last year.

Poor Dan was yet again blamed for gravity issues, though it did seem as if the coins kept rolling toward his chair.

Maybe there's some sort of magnetic principle at work?

Yes, fun was had by all. Luckily it was not me dropping coins this time, but I got blamed for everyone else's drop. Smile

And, yes, it is a gravity issue. It seems that it only happened when I had the Schoolcraft gravity flipper in my pocket... Hmmm.... Other people drop coins, and they fall toward me! Speaking of which, I got to spend a little bit of time with Eric Jones going over some of the finer points of his nice routine with the flipper.
Eric, that was fun having the chance to think of something else to do with that coin.

While I was messing with the properties of gravity, the magnetic principle at work would be Gallo's lap. Smile (Those who were at the DVD filming know.)

The only time I did drop a coin, somehow it landed on Bertini's little finger. Now that, my friends...not sure if it was gravity or magnets, but coins stick to that little finger like glue!

As always, the NYC guys were great to see again. Definitely was a good time had by all.
