I use walking liberty half dollars for this, and I'm awaiting a delivery of an expanded Victorian penny set.

As stated previously, dollar size coins are a bit large for the glass. I use them and they do work but you have to be a bit more careful when tipping out the last coin.
Also FYI, I am now using the method Joshua Jay uses to vanish the last coin in his Triad Coins routine for the final coin in the spectators hand in this routine.
It works great and clean up is easy as you have so much misdirection as they are dropping the 4 coins one at a time into the glass for the finish.

By far this particular glass is one of the most versatile magical apparatus out there, you should use it on every routine that deserves or needs a glass (e.g.: kangaroo coins, transpositions). Nice size, comfortable to grave and manipulate it.
The routine that Kainoa has develop is strong and audience tested, just with the proper amount of handling at reach of an average coin worker.

What coins are you guys using for this?
I think someone mentioned that dollars will work. But, is it more difficult with a dollar coin?

Or is this just a matter of taste?


I was wondering if he'd gotten all set with Half Crowns too. Seems he took a liking to them Smile

It looks like he's using his set of Barber Half Dollar coins. Year 1908, 1912, 1915 half dollars there. And a special something as per instructions.

It's amazing that you can't see the coin while it's in you hand under the glass. So many possibilities.

I thought that the crowns Kainoa uses in the video were dollar sized or close to it.

Exactly, which is why Jonathan Townsend's post is confusing.

Take a look at the video linked as OP and topic for discussion. I was expecting to see him using the Half Crowns as well.

https://www.youtube.com/embed/BGit6U7KW1......owinfo=0

let's go to 3:36 for a nice image of the tails side and 3:38 for both heads and tails.

Side note: The optical aspect recalls a David Roth routine using a purse and a glass about that size.

As anyone who owns the effect can attest, he uses Barber Halves in the explanation and some out takes. Also for the "Couples Perfomance" which is shown on the trailer. He uses and refers to his coins in the "Restaurant Performance" as "Half Crowns" while explaining that he studies "Victorian Magic" and passes the coins to one spec and the glass to another.

Both, half crowns and barber halves are used on the DVD.

Since folks are bringing in the video to this discussion of the trailer...

Did Roth's purse and glass routine get a mention? Look at the situation in that routine after you get the coins set and have just done the first coin change...

Also check out "Klink" by Rune Klan. lot of similarities. I am doing a hybrid of the two actually. (Klink and Victorian).

Thanks for suggesting looking at Rune's Klink routine. Great to see folks exploring options.

I LOVE the final vanish with the silk and the audible "Klink" and feel that part MUST go into my routine. Rune in very clever. I have been a fan of his for years. Smile

When I purchase an effect, be it cards, coins or whatevers... I like to take some of the modular aspects and switch in something from another similar effect. It kind of "makes it my own" (not in the marketing or I got it better sense) but in the "fits my personality" (and sometimes fools magicians who know the marketed version). as far as patter. I like to make my own and do with many effects but sometimes, I think the patter that "came with the effect" just works the best.

Here's what people are saying about Kainoa Harbottles "Victorian Coins in Glass"

"Those of you who perform coin magic already know the power of a good coins across routine. With the glass and the open handling, Harbottle’s take on this classic is purely outstanding."
Wayne Kawamoto, Magic.About.com 12/11/2015 Full Review

"If you are a fan of Kainoa Harbottle or even if you have never heard of him, you will really enjoy this routine. It is easy to do, very magical and very memorable. "
Dr. J. M. Ayala de Cedoz, MyLovelyAssistant 10/1/2015


"A wonderful routine, well taught, and with a great glass prop."
Doc Johnson, MyLovelyAssistant 10/5/2015

"“Victorian Coins and Glass” takes a standard coins across routine and elevates it dramatically, making it play bigger, appear more magical, feel more theatrical, all while making it easier to perform. "
James Sanden, MyLovelyAssistant 1/8/2016

"It's so deceptive! "
Sean Heydon, Wizard Product Reviews 9/16/2015


"Strong magic, carefully routined and elegantly structured."
Mark Leverage, MagicSeen Magazine 12/17/2015

"I recommend this for closeup workers who are willing to journey along the learning curve, over the necessary crest so they can ride on the strength of this routine."
Danny Orleans, Genii Magazine 1/13/2016

I just got Victorian Coins and I am amaze with the trick, routine and explanation. This is the 3rd trick/routine that I have from Kainoa Harbottle, the other 2 are downloads of routines. The way he performs, looks and speaks is great very enjoyable for the magic and for the visual aspect, with so much street magic, and grunge attires a well educated, groomed performer is welcome.

The glass is incredible and the DVD is very well produced, easy to follow and I like that the instructions follow each individual phase of the routine, very clear. Kudos to Kozmo here

Very recommended product

I just bought the Victorian Glass and as I am in the UK wanted to avoid dollars and half dollars. I have just received a set of Victorian pennies costing £20 which work very well. They come from hocuspocusmagic.com who also do Edwardian and Georgian (the 20th century type) sets for the same price.
