Recently, I’ve been into coin collecting. I’ve asked people to give me any old coins that they don’t want, and I’ve been collecting some of the weirdest ones from around the world. I also always keep one in my pocket. Besides the fact that I think these coins look cool, I’ve only ever told one person WHY I keep a coin in my pocket at all times. Coin magic. I am by no means a magician, but last year I was heavily into playing cards and I liked card magic. But for awhile now I’ve been especially interested in coin magic. I love practicing it because it takes my mind off of hard times, and it gives my fingers something to do. I will spend hours practicing by myself. And I have my one friend who lets me practice tricks in front of her. There’s something so simple that I love about coin magic/sleight of hand. But I’m afraid to tell anyone. I (used to) have a friend that HATED magic and magicians. They made it so blatantly obvious, but after I had a falling out with that friend, I turned to coin magic even more. It’s like an addiction. So I’ve simply come here to express that, because I know obviously that people won’t judge about magic. Again I’m not a magician, but just coins and coin handling and sleight of hand fascinate me so much. Let me know what your favorite coins are to use for coin magic! I have the bite coin gimmick, otherwise I just use my walking liberty half dollar. Sometimes I’ll use a quarter or any coin close to that size. I have small hands but I’m hoping to work my way up to a silver dollar soon.
