I have developed a way to make pewter coins and started making these Chinese coins.

My question is...
What kind of coin do magicians need that is not available?

Those look very nice.

One of the "FAQs" magicians ask about coins is "do they have milled edges?" for easier palming. Might be something to consider if you haven't already.
My ex-cat was named "Muffin". "Vomit" would be a better name for her. AKA "The Evil Ball of Fur".

Yes, milled edges are a definite plus, as well as 2 sizes (half dollar and dollar).

Thanks...

These are 1-5/8", and I have been selling them for $40 for four.

I am working on some smaller ones.

They are here... with some of my other pewter stuff and wood stuff.

Make sure the chinese symbols have a meaning and it is not a "wrong" meaning

Why? That's the funny part.
I hope they say "turd bucket" or something.

Turd bucket... works for me!

(Like anyone ever knows what the heck their Chinese coins say anyway!)

Unless Randi uses them for some Chinese clients. A moment of crowning glory would be one of them saying, "Why do your coins say 'turd bucket?' "

I have performed 'Cereal Killer', with my version of the Asian writing as one of the predictions, in front of some sort of Asian people.
They loved the joke and backed me up on my prediction.

Imagine it in reverse.
If a Chinese magician pulled out a coin that said "turd bucket", wouldn't you get a kick out of it?
I would.

You mean you wouldn't look at the Chinese magician and say, "HEY! You're using gimmicked coins!!!" ? Smile

If it was a Chinese magician with a coin with english writing on it, I wouldn't need to see "turd bucket" on the coin to know that it wasn't from America, England, or any other place that english is the language.
Same with a magician with a coin with Chinese writing on it.
I am pretty sure they can tell it's not a real coin.
You don't really think Chinese coins look anything like that do you?

I would think it was exactly what it is... a stage coin... a prop.

Randi, I think you're misunderstanding me.

I think "turd bucket" would be great (!), and in my last statement, I was making fun of magi who will find just about any reason to think their specs will think they are using 'trick' props.

I guess I am... too easy to do online.

Oh, heck, its way too easy to be misunderstood (or, not clear enough!) when online and you don't already know each other personally.

BTW, the coins look great. So do the Hot Rods.
