Take a look at the Gold and Silver version of this trick being performed here (all versions work on the same principle):

Grab a piece of Magical History

In April 1967 (9 years before we even started selling magic!) a little known Scottish magician called Jim Boyd published a trick called ‘Confusing Coins’ in the Gen Magazine. 

The Gen was a monthly magic magazine published between 1945 and 1971 by Harry Stanley.  Practically every great magician of this time either contributed or was featured in this magazine and it has left a legacy that it still felt in the magic world today.

Harry sold the best of the featured tricks and routines through his Unique Magic Studio in London’s Soho (absorbed by the Supreme Magic Company in 1970).

Jim may have been one of the lesser know contributors but this trick packed a huge punch and turned out to be one of most successful coin routines of all time.  Fittingly Jim had just qualified as a Chartered Accountant when he released this trick and he used an English half crown and penny to wow his audience.

Since 1967 this trick has been sold under different names by many different companies most of whom sadly fail to credit Jim with this wonderful trick.

It is also know as the Hopping Halves or Returning Coins and we sell a version called Gold and Silver from a well know American company.
