Review: Triad Coins by Joshua Jay and Vanishing Inc.

[vc_row][vc_column width=”2/3″][vc_custom_heading text=”Reviewer: Bernard Sim”][vc_column_text]I have quite a collection of gaffed coins, from mass produced coins by Johnson’s, Tango’s and also customized sets by Lassen. Triad Coins consists of an expanded [ and a normal [ over a shaved coin. The plus point for this is the expanded [ is nested the opposite way of the normal [. This way it enables you be able to safely palm it without the fear of the rest of the coins un-nesting.  


Triad Coins is similar to Lassen’s Triple Threat but at a wide difference in price( 59.95 vs Lassen’s $399). Lassen’s is a work of beauty. The set can be viewed at a close distance without being able to see the gimmick. Having said that, it is not fair to compare Triad coins with Lassen’s Triple Threat as there is a huge difference in pricing.

Here are some pics of Triad Coins.


Above are the coins un-nested, the size are about the same visually. But if you put them together, you’d be able to tell the difference in size. However, I don’t think your spectators will be able to tell during performance, so no issues here.

When the coins are overlapping each other. Looks ok to me.


The middle [ is nested over the shaved coin with the expanded [ lying on top of it. The normal [ over the shaved coins looks pretty good but the same can’t be said when the expanded [ is nested.


Comes with a box for you to store your coin set.

When you purchase this set, you will get a link to download a 16 mins video teaching you a basic routine. The good thing about this is that the normal [ and shaved coin can be used in your regular routines that uses an expanded [ over a normal coin. Currently, there is not much video material on double [ routines. However, there is a book “3T” which will have routines purely on Lassen’s Triple Threat in which you may use the routines in that for Triad coins.

Mass produced gaffs are cheap but you get what you pay for. You can’t expect a mass produced coin to be comparable to customized gaffs by Lassen. At this price, the gimmicked is well produced, I just wished that the video can be a little more comprehensive.

Magic is our passion but we are not a magic shop ? You can purchase this here!
