The best coin in bottle ever, and one of the biggest magic discoveries of the century. VISUALLY melt a coin into a bottle and IMMEDIATELY GIVE IT AWAY as an impossible souvenir!

“A very clever piece that I’m excited to perform” - David Blaine
“It’s an actual masterpiece. The more time I spend with it, the more I realize what a big step forward this is. Way to go. A brilliant, magnificent piece from a brilliant magician & magic creator – what a mic drop of an entrance into the world of magic creators. This is one of those rare pieces where the method is as amazing as the effect. And the effect is perfect. What an absolute treasure. I’ve been involved in magic for most of my life and I can’t remember being this excited about a trick for a long, long time. Thank you Michael for making this.” - Nate Staniforth

“A brilliant, breakthrough new method for coin in bottle, which was virtually impossible to do because all of the ‘cool’ methods have already been discovered, but you did indeed create something cool and new here! A truly improbable discovery – the perfect impossible moment everyone’s looking for. The magic world thanks you!” - Paul Harris

“An incredible coin in bottle. This piece has a lot of value in it. Getting the coin in the bottle with your method is genius, but the other part that is genius is your melting through handling. We are just as excited about it. You’ve replaced the folding coin.” - Doug McKenzie

“I’m fooled. I think it’s extraordinary. Really, really special and I think the marketplace will LOVE this. For now, I’ll bask in the glory of just being amazed.” - Joshua Jay

“Mind blowing! The greatest magic trick I think I’ve ever seen.” - Bobby Motta

“Looks good – Very nice! Congratulations my friend.” - Banachek

“Hell yeah, you’re killing it – looks great!” - Eric Ross

“Very nice optics! Good work!” - Brad Christian

“I’ve seen Michael trying to come up with his own contribution to the coin-in-bottle plot he loves for YEARS. Not an easy task with all the versions already out there. When he sent me a video of a coin SLOWLY penetrating a glass bottle, I went “OMG, he finally did it”. Pretty Penny Principle is more than pretty, it’s gorgeous!” - Johannes the Dreamer, the creator of Breakthrough

“Not just an impossibly visual coin in bottle without gimmicks, but multiple methods and presentations to fit any performance style! The time, thought, experience and creativity that Michael John has put into this is abundantly evident. If you have the slightest interest in the coin and bottle effect, Pretty Penny is required learning.” - Karl Hein

“Michael John is a good friend. As you know, I have my own version of a coin in bottle that I have been using for over 50 years. This is totally different and quite extraordinary! Actually, Michael gives you a variety of effects starting with a borrowed penny (marked!) that penetrates into a glass beer bottle! It’s a real unprepared bottle and a real, unprepared penny! This is so cool! He also teaches how you can give away the bottle with the coin still in it as a souvenir! What a great effect! The person can take it home and show it off for years. What a great way to advertise yourself! Plus there is more such as having the coin visibly penetrate into the bottom of the bottle while you hold the top with just one hand! And he also showed me how he pulls out a coin that’s already in the bottle right through the side! I am excited because this is all based on a new principle I have never seen before. When you see it, you will agree and wish you had thought of it first! Even though I will continue to use my version in my own shows, I will also be using Michael’s version for certain other special situations. And that’s what this is – SPECIAL!” - Richard Osterlind

“For what it’s worth…You absolutely killed it. You birthed a few modern-day classics!!” - Jonathan Friedman, writer for Paul Harris

“Aside from the lovely visual penetration, MJ had taken the impossible object/give-away concept and made it the most practical, efficient and cost free version imaginable. You can give these bottles away and it’ll cost you pennies .. literally. Easy to prep and easy to do, this is worker material, just terrific!” - Steve Valentine

“This is so good that Michael should have kept this one for himself; I’m glad he didn’t.” - Doug McKenzie

Pretty Penny by Michael John is the greatest coin in bottle of all time because it uses borrowed ordinary objects. You read that right. Borrowed coin, borrowed bottle, it does not get better than this

Imagine this. A penny is placed on your palm, an empty bottle is placed on the coin. Not only do you see the coin melt through the glass bottle but you hand out the bottle for examination. It gets better just wait. Not only can they examine the coin and the bottle but the coin is stuck in the bottle forever unless they break it.

As if that was not enough, Pretty Penny by Michael John includes a total of four methods to perform the coin in bottle.

You’ll learn the
-Optical Rise
-Quarter Penny
-Penny Push
-Penny Slam

Here’s why we love it
-The penetration looks even better in person. The optical rise is a true innovation unlike anything we have ever seen before.
-The coin goes in and the spectator cannot get it out without breaking the bottle.
-All of the props are ordinary and you could perform Pretty Penny with items found at a bar or party you are attending.

The method presented is undeniably ingenious, demonstrating the potential to be even more impactful with the appropriate resources. The meticulous research required to identify the optimal material combination is commendable. Unfortunately, due to the current lack of immediate availability of these specific materials, the execution of this technique will be deferred. This interim period shall be leveraged to explore alternative material combinations or to locate a consistent supplier for the requisite materials. This approach ensures that the full potential of the technique can be realized upon procurement of the necessary components.

In the domain of magical illusions, the classic 'coin in bottle' effect holds a revered position, enchanting audiences for generations. However, its traditional methods hinge upon breakable, gimmicked coins or manipulated bottles—a knowledge not lost on the discerning public. Michael John’s innovative solution, ‘Pretty Penny,’ addresses these limitations, providing a much-anticipated rendition executed with an ordinary glass bottle and coin.
‘Pretty Penny’ exhibits a refreshing authenticity, offering multiple handlings with premiums on practicality and visual aesthetic—of which the slow penetration of the coin through the bottle as showcased in the promotional material is particularly noteworthy. While the method does necessitate certain additional resources, beginners and veteran conjurers alike will appreciate that both the bottle and the coin remain ostensibly unaltered—the coin, decisively so. The challenge of assembling the required props pales against the elegance of the final spectacle: a sealed glass bottle with an encased coin, a tangible memory for audiences to treasure.
The educational value of ‘Pretty Penny’ is augmented by its meticulous instruction, which is presented via a comprehensive digital download. In this medium, the nuances of technique and relevant theoretical considerations are articulated in high-definition clarity, eschewing the distractions of subpar audio or impromptu live performances. Instead, the focus is on the gradual mastery of skill through clear and well-articulated guidance.
Michael John's execution in creating a tool for magicians looking to perform an age-old illusion with a modern twist reflects a nuanced understanding of both the craft's heritage and its contemporary demands. Coupled with robust instruction and versatility, ‘Pretty Penny’ exemplifies an exceptional leap in magic performance resources.
For aficionados of magical arts eager to elevate their repertoire, investing in ‘Pretty Penny’ is not just a purchase—it’s an enhancement of their art. Its immediate availability for learning upon acquisition showcases an understanding of the modern magician's need for efficiency and expedience. ‘Pretty Penny’ stands as a testament to how tradition can innovatively meet the current standards of magical entertainment.

The recently presented technique is highly innovative, and I find myself thoroughly impressed with its potential applications. The ingenuity behind this method inspires a multitude of complementary ideas, drawing upon both established knowledge and the newly introduced concepts. The simplicity of requiring only a penny and a bottle to execute this trick is commendable, and it piques interest for its performance capabilities.
In examining the principles of this technique, it is evident that it has been thoughtfully developed to provide practical applications that are both efficient and effective. The tutorial proffered represents a seamless blend of quality teaching methodology and versatile execution strategies. This approach not only demonstrates its value but also highlights its viability across various scenarios.
I eagerly anticipate the opportunity to incorporate this method into my repertoire and am confident in its ability to captivate and engage others. I endorse this approach for those seeking to expand their skill set with a reliable and dynamic resource.

This particular magic trick stands out in its category for multiple reasons, creating a mystifying experience without relying on conventional gimmicks or deceptive paraphernalia. The remarkably straightforward setup allows for the coin to be genuinely trapped within the bottle, a feat that spectators can witness with absolute clarity.
The product eschews the need for specialized equipment to heat or modify the bottle, a trait that often marks the simplicity of the highest-quality magic tricks. Post-performance, the integrity of the bottle remains intact, offering the audience an opportunity to examine it meticulously. Correspondingly, the coin retains its unscathed condition, showcasing no signs of bending or abrasion, which further substantiates the illusion's perceived authenticity.
The instructional component is both accurate and concise, enabling practitioners to perform the trick with minimal preparation, which is a testament to the efficiency and quality of the teaching method employed. Although the trick entails a switch, the procedure's execution and its convincingly natural outcome overshadow any potential drawback associated with the method.
While the inability to use a signed coin might seem restrictive, this review suggests a suitable workaround that reinforces the illusion effectively. By using coins of identical date and wear ?C and employing a subtle marking as a mnemonic aid ?C the magician can convey the impression of continuity and authenticity.
This trick comes highly recommended, especially to those specializing in bar magic, where immediate engagement and close-up spectacle are paramount. The 'coin in the bottle' remains a classic, and when executed with such refined subtlety and apparent ease, it is sure to captivate an audience, leaving them with an indelible sense of wonder.

The adage that 'knowledge is power' is exemplified by the innovative magic routine Pretty Penny, a tool that leverages intellectual agility to awe an audience. For the astute magician adept at thinking on their feet, this technique is an indispensable asset.
It has secured its place in my arsenal of performances, particularly during walk-around entertainment at conventions, where it consistently captivates. Pretty Penny shines in its versatile and powerful application, providing substantial impact using completely unaltered bottles and pennies.
This astonishing method relies on neither gimmicks nor subterfuge, standing as a testament to its ingenuity. It is outstanding for its seamless integration into any routine, lending itself to a variety of scenarios that require adaptability and finesse.
The intrinsic value lies in its simplicity and the clear, quality instruction that enables diverse alternate presentations. It comes highly recommended for practitioners looking for an addition to elevate their craft effectively.
