The origins of these coins have been clouded in mystery... some say they were used by Ninja Warriors to bribe their opponents. Another tale states that they were created in ancient China, by secret societies wishing to harness the deceptive powers of their masters. For the record allow us to state that both are true... and yet, neither is true. Such is the way of The Ninja Coins.
You show two Chinese coins and explain that they have magical powers. They have the ability to change themselves into any coin that is pressed against them , regardless of it's shape, size or colour. To demonstrate the unique ability of the coins, you ask to borrow a 50p coin from a spectator and place it on top of one of the Chinese coin. Both are pressed together and the Chinese coin transforms into a 50p coin! You explain that the Ninja Coin is a master of disguise and will copy any coin it comes into contact with. You can show the spectators how the coin transforms back from a 50p coin to a chinese coin when touched by a chinese coin.
Finally you take both chinese coins into your hand and toss in the remaining 50p coin. When your hand is opened ALL THREE HAVE BECOME 50p COINS!
The Ninja Coin Set allows magicians to transform a Chinese coin into a 50p coin instantly and without sleight of hand ! It seems totally impossible to the spectators as the two coins are so radically different in size, shape and colour!
Includes full easy to follow instructions PLUS techniques to transform the coin into other coin values!
After transforming the Ninja Coin into a 50p coin, you ask the spectator to name ANY value UK coin for the Ninja Coin to copy. Lets say the spectator chooses a 10p coin. You take a 10p coin from your pocket and rub it against the Ninja Coin. Instantly the coin changes from a 50p into a 10p coin! Both coins are handed out for examination! (this routine requires some super simple sleight of hand which is taught in detail!
IS SLEIGHT OF HAND REQUIRED?
We have designed The Ninja Coin to be suitable for all skill levels. For the first routine described above, the Ninja Coin Set does all the hard work for you. If you can hold three coins in your hand, you can perform this amazing effect. Perfect for all ability levels. We have included an expanded method to allow the coin to transform into other coin values, however, some very basic sleight of hand is required to perform this.
CAN I USE A BORROWED COIN?
Yes! You use the your own special set of Ninja Coins, then borrow a 50p coin from a spectator and let the ninja coin copy it!
WHAT OTHER EFFECTS CAN I PERFORM WITH THE NINJA COIN SET?
That's only limited by your imagination. Since launching this item we have received great feedback from magicians worldwide who are coming up with new and exciting ways to use the coins within their own coin routines.
CAN IT BE DONE IN THE SPECTATORS OWN HANDS?
Although you will have some limitations, with the correct handling and a little audience control, it's very easy to have a ninja coin copy the spectators 50p coin in their own hands (that's how we demonstrate the effect here at the magic shop)
IS THE EFFECT REPEATABLE?
Yes! The Ninja Coins instantly transforms back to Chinese coins when required, so you are reset in seconds!
IS IT SUITABLE FOR TABLE/RESTAURANT MAGIC?
It's perfect for that setting! The effect can be performed in your hands or can be set for use on any surface.
