Mr. Watkins has a video clip on his website

This is the type of coin magic that looks like real magic.

Agreed! I don't remember for sure if it was Dan who said this, but I believe he was presenting this at the latest New York Coin Magic Seminar this year.

Dan Watkins is a very talented coin man. His "Coin Man Walking" DVD has incredible routines and sleights and he himself has a wonderful performing style.

Hi Joe. Thank you for the compliments. I did perform and teach the routine at the recent NYC Coin Magic Seminar and it will be on their new DVD set in the future.

My website video is a few years old prior to me having a presentation for it. The DVD performance is better.

The good news is that it is very easy to perform. You don't need to be a "coin guy" to do it.

Very nice Dan! The premise is simple, magical and direct. looks great too!

A cleverly conceived copper clad chinese coin changing chalice. charming.
Mediocrity is greatly under rated!

I watched it live and it is a beautiful effect. The only problem I see is getting such a lovely little chalice. Dan's rings like a bell when coins are dropped into it.

Exellent routine Dan.

Looking forward to the next set of NYCCMS DVDs and learning the routine.

I love the idea of a chalice. Very magical.

I agree. I'm looking forward to learning this one also. I wonder if there are any chalice shops nearby.

You could have named it the charming chinese chalice...

I like this effect because it's pretty simple to do and plays well. As you know I like Quickie-Trickys or short effects that hit hard and are not difficult to do. This Charming Chalice is exactly that. Smile

I first came on the scene with Dan's work many years back now and was just mesmirized by one of his simpler tricks, Lightning Copper Silver. It's a beautiful little effect and I must say of all his stuff it hooked me like nothing else. Smile He likes using little things in his magic and this chalice is a similar sort of prop.

Check around ebay or a brass curio shop out there and you'll find something comparable or just ask Dan "Coin Man Walking" Watkins. Another good job Dan. Smile

The chalice is an Indian Tea Cup so search for that.
