Intoxicating commemorative coins, made to look like real Pirate treasure.
There's something intoxicating about Pirates. Quickly amassing riches they didn't earn, being free and answering to no-one.
Nobody embraced that life more than Captain Henry Every. An English Pirate famous for every Pirate's dream... One big score.
Legend has it that Capt. Every refused to attack English ships for their booty. At the time he was hailed as a more savage Robin Hood... but legend was wrong. No crew was safe.
In July 1695, Capt. Every single-handedly created "The Golden Age Of Piracy" by stealing the treasure of 2 Indian ships.
Every's haul of loot put him on the 'Rich List' of his day. He took in more earnings from those 2 ships than his rivals (Blackbeard & Calico Jack) did in their entire lifetimes... COMBINED.
He was said to have retired to a private Island, what we now know is Madagascar, with 40 war ships and 15,000 loyal crew. Melting his treasure to destroy all evidence.
Pirate coins are the imagined currency of this new Pirate Island. What was made from the Indian Fleet's liquidized treasure.
The half dollar size 'Pirate Coins' were created for the performer who desires all of the beauty and richness that is found in coin magic, while not compromising on practicality.
On the back is the fierce Captain's most famous quote, surrounded by two razor-sharp cutlasses:
"I am a man of fortune and must seek my fortune" - Captain Henry Every
On the face is the infamous skull & crossbones, said to be Every's flag. Although no first-hand accounts survive from his crew or victims.
This is underscored by the date and name of Piracy's greatest exploit. Gunsway.
Masterfully crafted with an antique gold finish, the Pirate coins have been beautifully designed to be perfect for coin work.
Precisely milled edges make even the most hardcore coin moves feel easier, even with moist hands.
- The exact diameter of a Kennedy Half Dollar. (The most popular size in coin magic)
- Antique Pirate Gold Finish.
- Ferromagnetic Core - these coins will stick to a magnet and can be magnetized themselves.
- Milled Edges to create lasting grip with even the most difficult sleights.
- Scratch & Impact Resistant.
Surrender your riches & order Pirate Coins TODAY.
They are well made, easy to grip with deep milling. Good for most palms…a bit noisy for a 3 fly but still do-able.
The word “fortune” can mean many things. I give these specially made coins to friends as a reminder to always pursue their dreams. To be kept in their pocket or purse to encourage them to move forward.
I HONESTLY WANT TO RECOMMEND THIS TO EVERY COIN MAGICIAN WHO ARE BEGINNER OR ADVANCED. THE COIN IS BEAUTIFUL AND YOU CAN HAVE A NEW PLOT FOR YOUR COIN MAGIC JUST BY INCLUDING THE BACKGROUND OF THE “PIRATE COINS”. IMAGINE UNLOCKING NEW CONCEPTS SUCH AS PIRATE TIME-TRAVEL, PIRATE THEFTS, PIRATE ACROSS AND SO MUCH MORE. GRAB YOURS NOW!
I will fully admit that I purchased these coins as a way to bump up my cart to cover the cost of shipping. Just a couple shouldn't hurt. Atleast, that's what I thought. When I got them, I absently tossed them into my drawer and that's where they sat up until a week ago. That's when I remembered that I had them and decided to take them out of their plastic. Man, why did I wait???
Soft edges, beautiful design.... I'm really glad I got these. And the best part, they go great as part of my Pirate costume that I wear for the Renasaince faires. Nothing better then pulling out a coin or two, doing a couple of slights, and then making them re-appear in my Quiver. So nice. And well worth the price.
The only reason for not 5 stars is I need to go find out how to magnetize and what you can do with magnetized coins. Brand new to coin manipulation and magic, so I know there is a lot to learn and I am looking forward to this. Very nice artwork! A neat coin in general.
Very authentic. I bought them and left one in the flower bed for my 10 year old grandson to find. It began a grand adventure of a treasure hunt! Opening up someone's imagination is the greatest magic of all!
These coins are very well made. I carry one around with me wherever I go to practice palming. They are magnetic so they work well with PK rings and they even perform sleight of hand by themselves. What? I was practicing palming one while on a call and dropped it. I spend over an hour looking for it and could not believe it just disappeared. I figured I would end up having to buy some more. The next day, after placing my order for some replacements, I was getting something off the floor and found it perfectly hidden (palmed) by my chair between the arm-rest and the seat...LOL
My grand daddy was a pirate- he would approve of these. Solid coins for magic, and still accepted as currency on the high seas...
They look great and feel. Even better for magic
