When you look at the effort companies like MeTal Writing have gone to to come up with a perfect version of Koran’s Gold Medallion it makes you wonder why they did not look again at this beauty released by Tannen’s c. 1972. It is easy to do, easy to set, and the “engraved” medallion looks really good.
I just tried it three times using up most of the original gold leaf that was shipped with the product and it worked pretty much perfectly each time. You can see how good the number looks in the photo. But I would forget all the others and stick with this clean and smooth method from almost fifty years ago 🙂
The other neat thing about this item is the ease with which you can get the prepared medallion – the pad itself is cleverly gimmicked to load it right into your hand when you need it.
- The two medallions (only one is needed for the effect but an extra is supplied – one with a blackened reverse and one with a brass reverse).
- The clever plastic notepad (holdout) device to hold the medallion.
- The Jewelry box to reveal the medallion.
- A couple of pieces of the original gold leaf are left – I was unable to find more, but maybe you will have more luck.
- A fresh note pad
Effect: The MAGIC MEDALLION is based on Al Koran’s brilliant Gold Medallion. It took the improvements of Tony Slydini, Glenn Gravatt and Sam Schwartz to put it in the miracle class for mere mentalists other than Al Koran himself. This is a practical method of producing a sensational mental mystery.
Briefly, the effect on the audience is this. Three members of the audience are each asked to call out any one digit number. The numbers thus called are formed into a three-digit number, i.e., if one person calls out 3, the next calls out 1, and the third calls 5, the number formed would be 315.
Another spectator is handed a small black box and told to look inside. He finds a MEDALLION, engraved with various designs on its face. He is asked to turn it over and call out what he finds inscribed on the back. Turning it over, he finds a number . . . The NUMBER FORMED BY THE AUDIENCE 3 1 5.
This effect can be performed under the most exacting conditions and is professionally practical in every way. Complete with Medallion, Gimmick and Jewelry Box
