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.

These coins are amazing. The feel is great. They are about the same of a half dollar and they have better grip. For transition and vanishing they don’t slip. It makes magic easy.
I purchased both sizes of the coins and they are both great to work with!
These coins are very good quality, perfectly weighted, and have great detail. I would recommend buying these coins if your preferred magic is with coins. They will add a bit of display to your performance. Even if you don't know coin magic, they are a great way to get attention. Overall, these coins are great and I would recommend buying.
The details are stunning and weights perfect.
I use 'em to "flip" for the opening break in a pool tournament match.
The pirate theme is excellent for the battle of 2 sharks [we are men (and women) of fortune and seeking our fortune every time we "chalk & roll"!!!
These coins will make a great addition to my pirate persona. Wonderful feel and look great too!!!
Great coins to a more mystic look to your performances. I am seriously buying more in the future
Great coin plenty of grip very easy coin to use for slight of hand
…but now I want a Pirate shell, and silver Pirate coins! (Sorry, Ellusionist, we always want more.) Yeah, I can use half dollars, but the problem with those is sometimes I’m broke, and then “somehow" my half dollars vanish. The Pirate coins are ALWAYS on me, no matter how rich or broke I am. Great weight, nice ridged edges, good clinky sound when stacked together. I’m not really a coin guy. but I have a few things I like to do and making sure I always have coins (good looking coins!) available is so nice. Recommended!
