We are a vibrant community of magic token collectors,
the Magic Token Society serves to support this fascinating hobby by engaging enthusiasts from across the world, providing exclusive tools and resources, and acknowledging remarkable token collections.
Officially there are 363 actual tokens that are listed in the Tams Journal Volume 18 Number 5 October 1978
written by F. William Kuethe, Jr. is the official guidebook and reference for the
Magic Token Society!
Magicians tokens are coins and palming disks that are made specifically for magicians.
They have been made of many materials like copper, silver, brass, bronze, nickel,
base metal, wood, plastic
and even paper.
They are often stamped with the magician’s name and likeness. If they were also used for sleight of hand, they would be made with special features. T. Nelson Downs for example, were unusually thin and well-balanced for easy palming
Tokens have been produced for as long as magicians have been performing coin tricks. These were often handed out to the audience as mementos. Other were advertising pieces and souvenirs. Many magic stores coined their own tokens to promote themselves.
