New York in the ’70s & ’80s was a lawless city plagued by violence, drugs & crime.


Five families controlled the city. Those were the Lucchese, Bonanno, Colombo, Gambino & Genovese crime families.

But we all know them by another name… The Mafia.

Made men or members inside The Mafia would refer to it as Cosa Nostra, aka “our thing.”

The myth is that every wiseguy carried a coin. This coin had no value but could buy anything - unlimited drinks, meals out, gas for their cars, and especially loyalty.

... It was a way to spend fear.

 

 

The rumor is that if you were a business owner who didn’t accept, they’d break your leg and stuff your own foot in your pocket.

But it was hard to prove their criminality… Nobody was talking. 

Any wiseguy pinched would live by the Omertà:

  • You didn’t hear nothing.
  • You ain’t seen nothing.
  • You won’t say nothing.

    If you did, it wouldn’t be long before you were wearing cement shoes.

    The impenetrable code of silence made it hard for the FBI to gather any evidence from within…. And the coins were never found.

    ... Until now.

    In a declassified sale from the US Department of F.M.S, Ellusionist has acquired some pristine silver coins carrying mobbed-up imagery.

    We have no way of verifying authenticity.

    Each coin is almost identical in size to a US half-dollar.

    • They have milled edges for lasting grip with even the most difficult of sleights.
    • A satisfying ring when flicked into the air.
    • Pristine Silver Finish for flawless retention vanishes. 
    • Ferromagnetic core - these coins will stick to a magnet and can be magnetized themselves. 

    They seem to be PERFECT for coin magic - and we believe they are. 

    The story we’ve been told is that they were locked in a safe that was seized in a RICO raid on February 14th, 1985. The night of the NYPD’s “godfather roundup.”




     


     

    Anyone who wasn’t already in silver bracelets, vanished overnight.

    That famous RICO sting stamped out the fire on organized crime for all 5 families. No mob now exists to claim their alleged property.

    … and when we ask former wiseguys if the coins are real they all say the same thing.

    “Forget about it”

    They still ain’t talking.

    Cosa Nostra Coin is a winner with me!

    I really like the new coin. I think it has a good size and weight. It is about the biggest I personally would go with a coin because I'm a beginner with smaller hands, but it's still small enough for me to easily handle. I also am very very glad that it is magnetic! It kills me when magic coins are made non-magnetic, it just automatically limits the coins potential. I also really like the back story and history of the coins design. It opens up a lot of banter opportunities for your trick, or just a cool conversation piece. The super shiny finish takes some getting use to, but it's kinda nice having a coin that stands out so much in certain situations. Given the low price and high quality of this coin there is no reason that you shouldn't add it (or several) to your collection, you won't regret it!

    The coin has some awesome details. A great weight to them feels great when palming.

    This coin is awesome

    I like this coin. It feels good in the hands. Unlike some of the other coins I’ve owned, I’ve dropped this coin a bunch of times and it still feels smooth. The shinny look is interesting as well.

    New to coin magic

    I’m new to coin magic but I love having a dedicated, “on theme” coin that’s a similar size and weight to typical pocket change but has a more theatrical vibe. Like some other reviewers I’ll be happy when it scuffs a bit so it looks a little more weathered. Seems to be a good size and weight for manipulation though, and my only regret is not getting the 4-pack that gets advertised.

    New favorite coins!

    These coins are so epic! With such a brilliant shine. Sometimes the coins are so shiny you can’t even read them, but that’s in no way a bad thing by any means. The lines are straight clear and raised. Nice weight too. I wish I could actually bust it out and get that full Cosa Nostra service for real. If you like or collect coins, then these are a must have for your collection 100%. I love them.
