Lol. Smile When I saw the price of the Morgans it dawned on me that I was an idiot. lol. :/
Reason I asked too, is that I have a small collection of old Silver US and Cnd coins and was hoping to have Mr. Tango make a TUC of a Cdn. one, ( our current currency attracts magnets so are un-usable as a TUC. ), so now I know, ( thank you Funsway), I would have to have four silver Cdn. coins the SAME, and have one of those gimmicked.
Draws a lot of suspicion here in Canada when you use US coins, people of course wonder why, and figure somethings up.
On the other side of the coin, excuse the pun, I don't have to shell out for steel core coins. Smile ... "shell" out lol. get it? Smile
It's nice to be important, but it's more important to be nice.

Yes, our new 10p, 5p, 2p and 1p are now all ferrous, so am well familiar with the problems and advantages.

I reckon really old coins you can get away with, as they have their own back story. But I agree, using current foreign currency can be a bit dodgy...

Curious -- would using Euros have the same rejection as US coins?

Hi Ken,

I would say yes. However, although I like to use UK currency, I have done loads of stuff with US half dollars with no problems. If there is a gaff involved, they won't know about it anyway...

And there's nothing quite like producing big, old silver coins from thin air. Noone cares what country they're from!

You should send a PM to Mr. Tango directly, but I would guess that he would. When I was buying my Morgan TUC from him he wanted me to send him three coins to make the gaff. I got lucky that he was making a batch for a North American tour otherwise I would have had to send him the coins. It would have been worth it though, it's still one of my favorite gaffs.

I can make the TUC with any coin in the world, except the ones that are steel. So if the coin is attracted for a magnet, it doesn't work for a TUC.

Honestly, I don't really get the hype about the TUC.. When I first got it from my magic store people were talking about how great it was. But when I opened it up and examined it.. I was kind of disappointed, why couldn't I just get a shell for cheaper? the insert for the kennedy halves of the TUC is also a real pain to get out, it isn't sure-fire.

Really? I find the Kennedy v easy to use. There is a way of adjusting it so it slides better. Have a trawl through this thread and you'll find the answer, Dentian.

And there are ways of opening and using the TUC not described in the DVD. It is worth the effort to learn how to use it properly -- apparently not from the guys at the store. It is also possible you particular TUC is damaged in some way -- it should be "sure fire."

Or it might be one of the old style TUCs.

Mr. Tango, I am planning to do so. I still do hope to get using this gimmick sometimes.

Dentian, if you love coin magic, you have about 80 different effect to perfom with TUC

Wow, that sounds great. I'll see how the lecture is and I will also ask some questions when possible, I think I could only be there for the first 30 minutes, but be sure to look out for my questions!

I have to say that the TUC is the best thing I ever bought. I recently augmented one of mine with a s***l. Wow, what a stunt.
Finding UK coins isn't that easy. But if you do, buy them, or chat to Mr Tango.
