Just in from the New York Coin Magic Guys: With SIX highly successful New York Coin Magic Semnars, and TEN instructional
DVD's on all phases of coin magic under their belt, the New York coin guys ROTH,
RUBINSTEIN, and GALLO could just sit back and enjoy their accomplishments. They
could, but they won't! Because on October 24-25th 2009, at Marc DeSouza's magic
theatre in King of Prussia, PA, host David ROTH, Dr. Michael RUBINSTEIN, and
Mike GALLO, will be presenting New York Coin Magic Seminar SEVEN!! The theme of
this year's Seminar is WORKERS - with the focus not on difficult sleight of
hand, but on PRACTICAL, workable material for all occassions, from friends, to
professional gigs. There will be material for everyone, beginners and pros
alike!! NEW routines, new moves, unpublished stuff held back for years from ALL
of the hosts, lectures, shows, hands on workshops where you will get PERSONAL
instruction from ROTH, RUBINSTEIN, and GALLO (the highlight of the seminars for
many of our past attendees!!), special guests, a bag of FREE stuff worth over
$100 (different at each seminar), a Pizza lunch (and we are talking about GREAT
pizza!), a screening of footage of coin magicians of the past, a SPECIAL tribute
to the late Geoff Latta, and MORE! The next day the attendees are welcome to
stay for the filming of our DVD set, where even MORE material will be taught. We
may even ask some of our attendees to contribute routines for the next set of
DVD's, as Eric Jones, Dan Watkins, Bill Citino, and Marc DeSouza among others
have done on our prior DVD's!
SPECIAL GUESTS Eric DeCamps, Doug Brewer, and Scotty York! All guests will give you their insight on their special brand of coin magic, teaching real world WORKER routines, tips, and giving advice, as they will be there for YOU during the two day period. The cost? We have held the price again to only $250, the SAME price the Seminar has been given since 2004. MATERIAL TAUGHT AT THE SEMINAR IS NOT THE SAME AS THE MATERIAL WE PUT ON THE DVD's, so don't miss out!!! Space is limited to the seats in the theatre, so register SOON, at www.newyorkcoinmagic.net! Looking forward to seeing you there!

Update May 11, 2007:
original reason I started the Foundations section
of this website was to answer questions that I received over and over again.
Topics tended to be about the Classic Palm, the
With the increased availability of custom crafted gaffed coin sets, I have been receiving questions with more frequency about what type of gaffed coins should I get?
I have added a 7 topic essay to help you make your decision about gaffed coins that covers the following:
What type of gaffed coins should I get?
What type of gaffs?
What size coins?
Silver versus clad?
What are soft coins?
What is re-edging?
Should I get an expanded shell set or unexpanded shell set?
7. Do I need custom crafted gaffed coins?
Enter the Foundations Section to read this essay. Enjoy.
Update May 5, 2007:
It's been a few years since I added a new coin video. I figured it was time to share something new. Check out The Coin Change Chalice: in the Videos section. It is a magical chalice that turns all the coins inside to whatever coin was last placed in...
Update April 27, 2007:
I just posted my review of the The New York Coin Magic Seminar: Volumes 2,3, and 4 - Copper Silver DVDs. David Roth, Michael Rubinstein, Michael Gallo, and Geoff Latta have just released three new DVDs on Copper Silver coin magic (coin plots that use varied types of coins). Click the review for the details.
Update January 18, 2007:
In my last update in September, I alluded to a new routine that I am releasing in eBook form. I am happy to report it is ready to purchase. The routine is called "CAPLOCATION" it is an un-gaffed evolution of John Kennedy's Translocation using bottle caps. Click HERE to read more about it and view a demo video. For ordering, visit the Products section of this website.
Many people have complimented me about the Classic Palming teaching that I provide in the Foundations section of this website. If you are still looking for more material to teach the Classic Palm, a new DVD has been released through www.themagicbakery.com by Reed McClintock that deals exclusively with this technique. Click HERE to find out more.
Upcoming items: The New York Coin Magic Seminar Volume 2 - on Copper/Silver coin routines (a 3 DVD set) is supposed to be released in the near future. I hope to provide a review on it when it is released. Stay tuned...
Update September 27, 2006:
Sorry for the lack of updates so far this year. Things have been pretty crazy in real life this year. I do however want to pass on some exciting news...
First of all, go to www.homerliwag.com and watch the trailer for his new DVD, CoinOne. Secondly, after you watch the trailer, go to the shop section of his website and buy it. I have not seen the DVD yet, but just look at that trailer! It's AWSOME! This DVD contains two routines. The first is Homer's routine published in Chris Kenner's hard to find Magic Man Examiner originally entitled "Four Coins and a Filipino." As a bonus, Chris Kenner performs and explains his great coin routine, The Deep, from his book, Totally Out of Control.
If any of you liked my "Coinvention Crossing" routine, you
need to definitely buy Homer's DVD. The one move I use of visually tossing
a coin from one hand to the other, only to immediately see it never went is
directly out of Homer's routine. It looks incredible in his hands.
Also... Mike Gallo has three new DVDs out in the marketplace now. Head to www.newyorkcoinmagic.net and click on Mike Gallo's product page, you can buy them directly from him.
Lastly, I have a new routine coming out in eBook form. I plan on releasing it in October, so keep your eyes peeled...
