I have Joe Porper's Poker Chip Surprise. I really love the effect and the special pouch. However, I would really like to do the same effect but with coins from different parts of the world. I'm thinking perhaps a European coin, a chinese hole coin, and perhaps a Mexican coin. I don't want to give away the secrets to the Poker Chip Surprise effect, so hopefully some of you are aware of this effect.

Does anyone know of something like this available?

It's called CSB or Copper Silver Brass And there are a number of great custom Gaffers who can make what you want for you.

Here's some different versions from one of our best gaffers:

If you don't want to pay an arm and a leg or wait a long while for custom work, Lassen sells an excellent commercial grade CSB:

As for the pouch, I strongly reccomend using this Himber wallet from The Ambitious Card for a CSB set:

Don't walk away from Poker Chip Surprise. It lends itself to a great presentation about working in a casino and keeping an eye on a shifty employee who handles that $10,000 chip.

Thank you Banzai and Leo.

Banzai.
Thanks. I'll check out Todd Lassen's site. I hope he also has the non-gimmicked coins to go with them. The thing I really like about the Poker Chip Surprise is that in conjunction with the pouch, it ends with ungimmicked chips in the participant's hands.

Leo,
I agree. I really like it. In fact, as I'm sure you know, there are moves that can be done with it that can't be done with coins due to the "talking". So, I do like it, but it obviously carries a gambling theme, and I would like to also use a "traveling" theme.

Banzai,
I just ordered a set from Todd Lassen. I see that he has sets with gimmicked and non-gimmicked dups. I might need to order the himber coin pouch, but I recently made a himber-like coin pouch in the shape of a fish. It's sort of a comical "big mouth" fish. The lips open on either side. I rather like it as it is an interesting conversation piece itself. I still need to make the non-gimmicked one, but I'll get to that soon.
KJ.

KJ,

Poker Chip Surprise is - as Banzai stated above - nothing but a regular CSB set in Poker chips instead of coins. There are a lot of different CSB routines that you can do with various endings. I wouldn’t just stick with the routine that it is sold with.

There are a lot of great routines for CSB, but one that I like that allows you to end up with the coins in the hands of a spectator is "Numistmatist" on Volume 1 of the late great Scotty York's Silver Fox DVDs:

You will need that switch out Himber wallet for that routine.

Another is Jeremy Pei's The Ultimate CSB Magic DVD. http://www.ultimatecsbmagic.com/csbrevie......2012.htm

And here is a JC Wagner routine modified somewhat by Nate Kranzo: http://kranzomagic.myshopify.com/pages/n......er-brass
