My order is in.

Mb is one of the people here whose opinion I completely trust, and the cost of the set and the routines is a real bargain, in my opinion.

I'm sure John Jurney will sell out at Magic Live.


Thanks so much Jack, I am humbled...

I really think you're going to like this new "system" John has put together...He has been thinking as to it for a long while now. To see it come to fruition is just amazing, especially as to all it can do. He includes so much with it and it's so flexible.

*And again here... while I know he is trying hard to meet the demand of the upcoming Magic LIVE event, but all you guys are important to him too, so I'd say to keep reaching out to him just the same, cause you never know, he might just have some available, if not right now then later after the big event is out of the way. He's working hard to meet demand and if I know John, he will work hard not to leave anybody out as well. Smile Please continue to reach out...

I received the coins today, and they are beautiful.

The craftsmanship is top notch, in my opinion.

The only comparable that I own is Johnny Wong's STC, but I think that this set far outshines them.

I haven't watched the instructional videos yet, but I intend on viewing one or two a night for the immediate future.

Thanks a lot, John!



Folks are beginning to receive their orders, and they are very happy!!! 😁

Remember to keep reaching out to John for yours.😊👍🏽

I just received this coin system as well. They are awesome. However, due to some unexpected bills, I will have to sell mine. Brand New. PM me if anyone is interested.

Wow! JJ and friends really put some work into devising, filming and teaching a sweet palette of moves and effects for these coins. It's really nice to get something like this based on nothing but a recommendation you trust (Mb217), and then find that everything exceeds expectations. This is an incredible toolbox and expertly engineered set of gaffs. Plus, it comes with a beautifully made leather carrier to keep everything safe and together (and a video tutorial on the right way to load the leather carrier), and a fully realized video masterclass exploring ideas, moves and routines - none of this, "we'll put up a webpage/FB group and add content to it regularly!" [...five weeks later, crickets...). So to sum up, this does not suck.


More happy folks...Told'ya!😁

Hiya Joe,

John is working on providing product for the upcoming Magic Live this weekend, but will then turn his eye back more specifically to filling orders from here and on his website. You could wait until then, or you can still just reach out to John directly right now at:

jjmagiccoins@comcast.net

Hope that helps. Smile

Received my set today. Gorgeous - absolutely gorgeous. And I thought that this level of craftsmanship went out with P & L. Thanks, John, for this beautiful contribution to our art!


Another very happy customer...So glad to hear this from rosario, and that's just what I thought when I first saw it..."Gorgeous!" Smile

It's getting about time for John to make his way out to Magic Live, where I'm sure this NEW Transformer Coin System is gonna be a BIG hit with magicians from all over the world. But believe me, he hasn't forgotten about home here... Smile

*Here's another wonderful effect with the system and some more of John's cleverness, that brings together a little of this & a little of that in updating a classic from Mark Jenest. Smile

Indeed they are bowers my friend, Smile and the craftsmanship is just astounding... And their "potential" is just amazing...so many possibilities. Smile

*Oh and John is out at Magic Live right now with this new Transformer Coin System and several other items like his dazzling Casino Chip Coin Coalition, Coin Thru Bill and other Jurney gems... Smile He says it's wild out there in Vegas and just tremendous crowds of magic enthusiasts everywhere. Smile

Again, if any of you guys are out there or know someone who is, tell'em to drop by and see John work his magic at the Steven's Magic Emporium table there, and see for themselves what this wonderful new "System" is all about. Smile

Good on you Joe. Smile

Im hearing out from Magic Live that everyone is very impressed with John's new Transformer Coin System. Even heard the great Bill Malone, stopped by to check it out, and just marveled at John working it. Smile

Very nice as I would expect from John. Is it restricted at all to just performing it on a table top buddy, if you get my drift? Look forward to finding out more


There's all kinds of routines in the package, something for everyone, table and walk-around. And simplymagicweb, I think you will really like John's Shortest Hop/Deja Vu done with this new Transformer Coin System...Just devilish, especially in the hands of a seasoned pro like yourself. Smile But the good thing is, it will work in the hands of anyone, no matter the level of ability. John has made it that versatile. Smile

https://vimeo.com/282777091

*Oh, and John is doing quite well out at the Stevens Magic booth at Magic Live, sold a lot of sets of this new Transformer Coin System and his wonderful Casino Chip Coin Coalition is still selling surprisingly well...Magicians love that it doesn't use stickers...Who knew? Smile So all his works, after the end of the event today, will begin to make its way out in the greater environs of America and the world. A real progression in coin magic where the needle has definitely been moved. And the guy is right from here on the Magic Café, one of our brothers. I'm darn proud of that, and that before those coins went anywhere, they went out here to you guys first. Smile

Can't wait to hear all the wonderful stories from the event from John and others. But especially from John, the magician, the master craftsman, the demo man. Smile He's seen everybody out there big & small, and everyone has seen him and his wonderful coins. Man, I remember when all this was just an idea swimming around in his head and a dream. Smile

Those look like half dollars instead of dollars!


Why yes, they are half dollar size coins. Smile John heard all those that had been asking for half dollar size as they are the size of choice for most coin workers. It wasn't easy but he came up with this wonderful new Transformer Coin System.

Speaking of that, John sold out at Magic Live. Smile Smile

I knew this coin system would go over BIG, and it did.🏆 It was a great experience and John took his place there amongst all the other BIG craftsman there with his own unique products...All the way from right here on the Café. Smile Smile

MB, I got everything John had at Magic Live. you can almost make any gimmick out there with his combinations. And the Chinese coin has a real hole in it. But the best part was a tip he gave me based on coins snd a cardcase. It solved lots of problems with other routines I have!

Man, this is my 8000th post...I gotta get a life. Smile

So happy you met up with Jurney out at Magic Live, John... Smile And good that you got some real world advice from him. On top of being a really good craftsman, he's also a pretty darn good magician and can really work anything he sells. Really nice guy, too. Smile

Sounds like you got yourself a lot of good stuff and had a wonderful time. And good to hear that what I describe here of John's work is what you see & feel it really it is in your own hands. Enjoy it! Smile

*Oh, and if you ever need any help beyond the great videos that come with the package, just whistle John an email. Smile

jjmagiccoins@comcast.net

**And st3, it won't take long as John is quite efficient...I'm sure he's already on the case producing more sets to meet all the demand. Smile

I discovered John's Transformer set last week at Magic Live! and I am amazed by it (I also got his coin through bill which is fantastic as well). This system is incredibly versatile. It allows you to mix and match the gaffs in creative ways, and the routines will only be limited by your imagination. On Vimeo, John and a friend demonstrate some of their favorite effects. They are all very strong and visual. Stunning. The quality of the gaffs in superb — you could hand them out and I believe they would be fine if handled casually by a spectator. This is not the case with most gaffs.

I have about every coin gaff made and ones made by every major worker of coin gaffs, and I think John's may be the best. What I love about the system is how versatile it is. It could replace a shell, a Chinatown half, a triple split, a Hopping Half, and a Scotch and Soda for many routines with at most a few small adjustments in handling (if any). The matrix effects he shows are clean, direct, and astonishing. With these gaffs, and their matching ungimmicked counterparts he provides, and a few cards your pocket, you could do tricks all night. And I might do just that!

I have just begun to study the routines and his instructions (clear and well done) for this system. Given how much you get, the versatility of what the system offers, and their precision quality, the price is very very reasonable.

As a long-time coin worker and owner of many many fine gaffs, I thank John for his imagination and skill in crafting what will soon become my working tools for coin miracles. Watch the Vimeo clips and see for yourself. High, highly recommended. And, he's a nice guy.


Nothing like first-hand experience. Smile I appreciate when you guys simply give something so wonderful a whirl, to see for yourself.

Thanks for the fine report here, Gip...and welcome to the Café. Smile
