No one make true magnetic version of Scotch and Soda.

Tango makes a product called, "Magnetic Scotch and Soda English Penny" and Johnson makes a product called, "Magnetic Silver & Copper" but NONE of these are true Scotch & Sodas because these two products use a half dollar and an English penny, a real scotch & soda uses a half dollar and a CENTAVO. Older versions used a pre-civil war large cent.

The problem with the English penny is that it is the same size as a half dollar, where as a centavo is much smaller than a half dollar, a centavo (actually an old 20 centavo coin) is slightly bigger than a U.S. quarter.

The standard Scotch & Soda effect is a tactile effect, the English penny will not do the job because it is looks too big.


Interesting take on the "Scotch and Soda"... Personnaly, I have been using a set made with a half dollard and an english penny. I have been doing this illusion in a professionnal context for the past 20 years. I think that part of the amazing reactions that I get is due in fact because the penny is so big, they have no idea how I could have taken it away without them noticing it!

Auk Van Dokkum makes an outstanding magnetic Scotch 'N' Soda. It is not inexpensive, but it is a true Scotch 'N' Soda only locking magnetically, not by friction. The coin can be examined by a spectator when locked. I own and use one and recommend it highly if you can afford it. It's around $225.00 and made from a BU Morgan.
