Now you can show the REAL reason why the £1 coin had to be changed...
The government had to change the £1 coin design because of this little device... With this great illusion you can show what a £1 looks like before it is pressed into a coin. You can then go and demonstrate this by putting the blank in a £1 mould press and turning that £1 blank into a real £1 coin!
This is one of the nicest brass/coin effects we have seen for a very long time. It is a very nice effect, self working, naturally entertaining, can happen in the spectators hands and will most likely become very collectable!
You introduce a £1 blank. What is a £1 blank I hear you ask! Well it is what a £1 coin is before the Royal Mint has pressed it into a coin. The spectator can feel, check and examine this blank.
But what good is a £1 blank if you do not have the moulds to press it into a coin I hear you ask! Well, it just so happens you have got these brass moulds, they are two brass cover discs, one has a tails side of a £1 coin impressed into it and the other has the heads side. These too can be freely examined by the spectator.
You take the £1 blank and place it between these two discs and hand them to your spectator to press down on. They press and then open up the cover discs, the blank is now a complete, freshly pressed £1 coin! And everything can be examined!
It is such a convincing illusion you will be asked why you don't do it all the time! Of course you can always say you would but the £1 blanks cost £1.20!
Please note: This is a magic trick and the device secretly changed the blank into a REAL original £1 coin hidden in the device. This can't be used for the real manufacture of coinage... It really looks like it though...
A very nice well constructed gimmick. Easy to perform trick, although a little practice is required to ensure the blank and the pound coin is swapped in the hand invisibly before using the press. Performed correctly, you will amaze your audience every time.
Tricky to perfect blank/coin handling - but I am a beginner.

How many blank coins do I get and is there more available if I run out of them?

You get one unprinted £1 coin with the item, and that is all you will need as it can be used over and over again It's solid metal, so will last a lifetime. If you were to lose it, just contact MoM Customer Care and we can help you get a replacement.

Is there any palming involved? So I am really asking is it easy to do?

It's up to you. You can add a touch of sleight of hand if you want, and that will help you show the unpressed coin fully at the start of the effect. If you are not confident with a simple move, you can simply wait until the end of the trick to have the coin inspected.
