TWO SIZES/ SAME TIME

< Previous Post

We would like to think we can!

The contest is over. But here is our new Kickstarter to make the coin.

It's the FLHEX project and it features an exciting deck of cards and a new coin with an odd shape, giving it similarities to both half dollars and silver dollars.

We have just a few days...Read about it and support our Kickstarter NOW!

Ok Gang,

I'm making a new coin that is both Silver Dollar Size and Half Dollar Size at the same time. I know, that sounds crazy. Maybe it is. Can you figure out how this is possible? That's our Contest...

Tell me how I could make a coin that is both Silver Dollar Size and Half Dollar Size at the same time. Comment Below before November 5, 2019 CST for your chance to win TWO of these new coins!! 

This is all happening because I'm starting a Kickstarter for a new deck of cards for Cardistry. The Kickstarter is a side project, because we are obviously a Coin Magic company. 

However, there is a coin component to this Playing Card Kickstarter. I'm making a coin that goes along with the deck! It's a way to connect the Copeland Coins Brand, and we all like coins, so why not?

As stated above, this coin will be very special. Can you guess how it is possible to share both Silver Dollar and Half Dollar sizes in the same coin?

To be fair, I'm being intentionally vague about the description. And the size is not perfectly the same to both coins, but will be with in a couple of millimeters. Pretty stinking close, I would say!

As always, I reward everyone who enters into my contest. So it doesn't hurt to take a guess at what this new coin will look like.

Have fun! You are allowed two guess... in case you want to get creative with one of them and be more serious with the other.

Okay, that's it. Comment below for your chance to win!

1. No purchase necessary.
2. Winner will receive two (2) of these new coins.
3. If the Kickstarter is not successful, these coin will not be minted and will not exist, so another coin prize may be substituted at Copeland Coins discretion.

    i would think the coin was hexagonal giving you two sizes depending where you held the coin
    great idea btw cant wait to see it

    I have been using some Japanese coins that I have described as simultaneously having both half dollar and silver dollar attributes. The Tempo Tsuho coins minted in the Edo period (1835-1870) are oblong with a width of about a half of a dollar and a length a little bigger than the circumference of a silver dollar. (https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tenpō_Tsūhō).

    I found these in a coin shop a couple of decades ago. I love using these coins because I can utilize either dimension (length or width) as is advantageous for the Palm I intend to apply, whether a classic palm, edge palm, a Goshman pinch, purse palm, and so forth.

    Given the origin of these coins and the hole in the middle, I also have been using them for a form of the Charming Chinese Challenge.

    It seems to me that this general coin shape may be the same kind of approach that Copeland Coins May be taking.

    My first thought would be a coin that can expand so the dollar size would probably have a hole in the middle not unlike the reialme coins

    A coin that works like the aperture of a camera. Where you twist it and it’ll grow or shrink depending on the state it is in. Half to dollar or vice versa.

    Magnetic backs with teflon to allow the coin halves to slide depending upon which needs to be displayed.
