Deadeye Contact Coins

from 28.00

Aroundsquare’s Deadeyes are our first entry into the world of currency manipulation, and we’ve put a lot of time and effort into the refinement of this design, and the development of possibilities surrounding it. We’ve started calling these “contact coins” because they lend themselves to a style of manipulation that resembles contact juggling.

On the surface, the Deadeyes look like just a refined worry stone made from metal, and they certainly serve well for that. They are precisely crafted and beautifully finished, with an ergonomic indent on either side that is perfect for thumbs of any size.

But as you’d expect from AO2, there’s more to it than that. The concave shape and resulting ridge around the perimeter make the Deadeyes perfect for contact-style manipulation. With practice, they coins can be made to roll fluidly between the fingers, or back and forth over the thumbs, and isolations can be performed where the coins appear to be floating around the fingertips.

For this “pre-release” drop, the Deadeyes are available in mirror-polished gr5 titanium, and in two sizes. The large size is 37mm in diameter, and weighs around 24g. The small one is 30mm in diameter, and weighs around 12g. They both play well and feel great in the hand, but the large feels much more substantial and is more stable when performing contact-style manipulation, while the small is much closer to the half-dollar size preferred by many magicians.

As with all of our pre-releases, the final product and packaging specifications may end up being slightly different from what ultimately comes with the full launch. This batch of Deadeyes is a finished product (not a beta or a prototype), but we are contemplating laser etching, as well as some accessories like a microfibre pouch, that are not in the current drop, but may come later. The current drop is plain coin and box only.
