I am sure you can nicely combine it with Poker Chip Surprise


Really? That would be nice. The poker chips don't match, do they? I ordered this, so I guess I'll find out.

Well, I was just guessing but it 'surely' would be great wouldn't it?

This is basically Eddie Gibson's "Coin Unique" with a poker chip and coin. In fact, Mark calls it "Chip Unique" on the DVD. Guess they decided to change the name to "Miracle Chip" after they filmed it.

You can get it with a US or UK coin. I think the chip is beautifully made. And, yes, it's a Desert Sands - Las Vegas chip. You also get an ungaffed matching chip and a real 50 cent piece, which was nice of Mark.

I'll be honest here. The props are great and Mark's routines are nice, but I don't think this is a "10" by any means. Watch the demo and judge for yourself.

Robert, they do it in uk coins??
I just thought it was half dollars and euros?
I'd like it for the dvd with the routines, just so I can use them with my coin unique....

Matt - If I'm not mistaken, I think Mark calls it a "two pence" coin. It looked like it was about the same size as an American half dollar. Isn't this a UK coin? Sorry, I'm only familiar with US coins.

I'm delighted with the chip. Definately a well made prop that offers a new spin on an old but very powerful idea.

I love Coin Unique so I just placed an order for this. I'll do an unbiased review when I receive it. This looks like one of those really clever gadgets that is fun to play with even if you don't perform with it.

I own this and have a question for other owners.

Does the fact that half of the edge of the insert half dollar is white bother you?

Andi,

Since I didn't notice it until you asked, I would have to say no. But then again, a Sun and Moon coin doesn't bother me, with half the coin being copper.

Haven't had anyone ask about it as well.

Andi,

The routine that I do with this is the routine that I have for coin unique (it's on the video demo section of the Stevens Magic site). All the "heat" is on the ungaffed half at the end. I show the "chip and half" at the beginning and toss them into my left hand. I don't show the edge of the coin initially...don't believe in "running if I'm not being chased."

Some of the routines are only fair to me. Most of the time the poker chip is not used for anything toward the laymen. Creativity is needed with this set. To me, "Magnetic Silver Copper" is better.

OK I *do* give this effect a 10. I think a couple of the routines on the DVD are quite clever. I particularly like the one that uses a match box and the one that causes the vanished coin to appear above a chosen card that is in a box.

I sold off my magnetic copper and silver because it was such a pain in the a-- to reset it. Paul Diamond makes it look like a walk in the park, but I had to use an external magnet to get the job done, On the other hand I learned to consistently and instantly reset the MIracle Chip in about ten minutes.

No hesitation on this one.

Quality of the props is excellent.

Is it magnetic so can we reset it without a bang ring? And is it visually same as the other chip product by Mark Mason the Gravity Flipper poker chip? It would be nice to switch them for some routine if they are look same.
