Question: these coins are fairly strong, should we be worried about erasing credit cards, etc? Do you keep them alone in a pocket?

Just wonder if I'll be stupid (I will) and take them out at the end of the day and drop them on the stuff in my other pockets, like my wallet and so on. Or near my laptop without thinking.

Just didn't know if there's a way to "shield" them of sorts. Any thoughts from you guys who have used these a long time?

No way to shield this invisible magical force at all, so be careful with your credit cards
im going to have to get this once my bills are paid, the dirty pigeons really sold it to me, no joke Smile
Geraint, are the £2 strong coins we can get in the UK definately no good for this?

When I’m wearing jeans, I just carry the coins in the small front right “change pocket” to keep them separate from my wallet. Khakis or dress pants usually have a similar pocket. No issues.

Yes, definitely keep them away from credit cards. They're SUPER strong and will definitely affect that.

I keep them in my back pocket in a quiver coin holder, completely separate to my phone or wallet.

Kreis doesn't make the super strong magnetic coins in £2 variations, so if you see them, they're not suitable.

We've tested so many coins. Even Roy Kueppers (who is a master) sent me his coins that were 'exactly the same' and they were not as powerful.

I tested this by placing individual cards in between until the magnet would no longer stick, before we launched Silver Edge 1.

Kreis' coins are far superior to anything else on the market.

Will magnets affect the chips on credit cards, or only the magnetic strips?
Do they still even have magnetic strips?

Card chips can’t be demagnetized.

No, meaning your banking info is not saved on a magnetized anything, it’s saved on a tiny microchip. Can be damaged by prolonged exposure to water (corrosion) or a nasty scratch (physical damage) but not magnets apparently.

You're really focused on this, Peg. I meant to imply that magnets will not damage the chip on your card. Sorry for any confusion, bud.

Sorry to resurrect an old thread but is there any reason that these routines couldn’t be done with magnetic quarters? I generally stick with quarters for a more impromptu feel.

These use extremely strong magnets that can hold the coins thru the palm and back of hand (with the hand held flat), so many if not all of the "new moves" rely on that extra strength. A couple magnetic quarters will not do the job.

Sorry. I meant the super strong quarters from Kreis. I was just curious if the smaller size would make a difference.

From what I have found, it would appear from my Kreis quarters and 1/2 dollars that the quarters seem stronger.
They may not be stronger... but being that they are lighter and smaller it seems that they are stroneger than the halves.

So, it sounds like using quarters for the Silver Edge routines is no problem?

The Kreis Magnetic quarters are the same as the halves. Should be able to do Silver Edge routines just fine. Take note that the coins work the same...only smaller.
Here are some demos of routines with Kreis quarters.
