One of the most anticipated project release by Avi Yap is finally here. Wait… Who is Avi? Avi is a superbly talented and young coin magician based in Singapore who had successfully fooled and entertained a lot of big name magicians such as Chris Kenner, Chris Ramsey, Wayne Houchin and the list goes on.
After 10 years of working with coins, Avi has finally agreed to share with us his coin work through a series called “Art of Coins.” Each chapter will share some of Avi’s beautifully crafted routines that was reserved for his personal working repertoire. There’s no better routine to kickstart “Art of Coins” than Monarch.
So what is Monarch? Simply put, Monarch is Avi’s handling of the classic “Chink-a-Chink” effect. But there’s so much more than, with a decade in the making and being one of Avi’s oldest creations, Avi have spent a substantial amount of time to refine every aspect of the routine. What you will learn in this project is not just an effect or a trick, but an accumulation of experiences that Avi has worked and gathered over the years. Whenever Avi performs, this is usually his go to routine, and after learning it, you will understand why! It’s straightforward and highly visual! You could even perform it completely surrounded. What’s more, is that this routine is surprisingly easy to learn and do! If you want an effective icebreaker, you can’t go wrong with Monarch.
Included in this project is not just the routine, but everything you need necessary to perform the routine. Teaming up with the high end coin making company, Alchemist, the gimmick and the coins(Morgan replica) you will receive are amongst the best quality in the world!
There are 3 options available:
1. Quarters – suitable for performers who prefer to perform the routine with borrowed coins.
2. Half Dollars – suitable for performers who are looking to have better visuals yet still have the flexibility to use borrowed coins.
3. Morgans – suitable for performers looking for the best visuals.
The Morgan Dollar option comes with 4 ungimmicked replica coins that is arguably the best replica Morgan in the market up to date! Made with Cupronickel, the coins are made so that the details and the sound produced are extremely similar to a genuine Morgan Dollar! To make things even better, we made them as soft coins, meaning that there will be little to no talk when performing! AND it has the perfect weight for your everyday coin magic. They are specifically made for Avi’s everyday use and were made under the strictest requirements. We are confident that you will be happy with these coins.
Due to legal reasons, We are unable to provide legal tender coins in the project. However don’t take that as a negative but an encouragement to perform this with borrowed coins; which arguably makes the magic way stronger!
Monarch is one of Avi’s monumental pieces that is a testament to his growth. Through this project, we hope that you will be inspired to embark on a similar journey, growing and meeting many more people just like Avi himself.
Come and join us on this journey. It does not matter if you are beginner, enthusiast, or a working professional, we believe you will be able to get something out from this project. Diving into the mind of Avi now as he finally shares his coin work, starting with this, Monarch.
