Garrett Thomas “Imagination Coins”
There is no magic without imagination. Everything starts with imagination; a smile, a sculpture, the Mona Lisa, the Pyramids of Giza. But what if you could take them beyond what they expect? Beyond magic? Beyond their imagination?
Imagination Coins allows your audience to do the magic in their own hands. Simple, clear and beyond anything they can imagine. If you have used Imagination Coins in the past this information will bring you into a new world of effectiveness.
The spectator clearly has four coins that they stack in their own hand. The magician does nothing as the spectator imagines giving the magician a coin and somehow even though the magician does not touch or go near the spectator, it happens: the coin ends up leaving the spectator's hand and materializing in the magician's hand. Then, with another feat of imagination, the coin manifests itself back into the hand of your spectator.
Garrett's Imagination Coins concept gets revisited and updated with a treasure trove of special bonuses that get even stronger reactions! He re-teaches the original version now with more detail and more intimate close up instruction. Special Guest Eric Jones stops by to interview Garrett on this effect and share some of his personal thoughts on Coins Across.
Many magicians have taken Garrett's workshop or private lesson on David Roth's Coins Across. Garrett touches on every phase of this classic effect. His complete Coins Across workshop is available here for the first time ever.
As a special Bonus you receive the method for the effect that Garrett calls Jump: four quarters being trapped by two pennies instantly vanish between the pennies and appear into your hand.
"It's more than just a coins across, more than a series of sleights... it's an example of how real magic would look."
- Eric Jones
"It is the only coin trick I would ever do. It's that strong."
- Luke Jermay
"This effect does not just teach you how to manipulate coins, but how to manipulate your audience. That is what the best magic always accomplishes."
- Kainoa Harbottle
Gimmick and small, black, silicon change coin purse included.
As the art of magic evolves, we find that a single amazing moment is often stronger than an entire entertaining act. Coin magic, focused almost entirely on transpositions, is in particular need of something to make it “stand out” and give it more “depth.”
With PROFILE and SKEWER world-renowned sleight of hand expert, Garrett Thomas, brings you two amazing moments of strange that will give your audiences something very different to talk about.
These extremely powerful, reality-twisting moments break through the expectations of the typical coin trick and force your audiences to ask themselves, "Did that REALLY just happen?"
PROFILE In Garrett's new coin concept, you slowly press your finger into a Kennedy half-dollar that amazingly melts, shaping a deep impression into the metal of the coin. PROFILE includes an optional twist ending, as the portrait of the president can be shown to have been pushed out in 3D.
SKEWER Garrett has reworked the classic Karate Coin into an illusion that allows you to slowly push your finger completely through a half-dollar and make it look as though it is melting in every direction through the face of the coin. This is definitely NOT your Grandmother's finger through coin trick!
Included with PROFILE and SKEWER are two amazing new tools, made from Kennedy half-dollars. Garrett explains how to use these tools in two real-world routines and includes four options for performing each of the effects (ranging in difficulty from novice to expert).

"...you can perform for spectators who are seated at tables, as well as spectators who are standing, as is the situation at most cocktail hour events...Since the action occurs as spectators are holding cards, the “magic” effectively happens in their hands, which taps into the strength of ‘in the hand’ routines such as ‘sponge balls."
