Jay Marshall Centennial Commemorative Coin

Society of American Magicians “SAM” 100 year!  Centennial coin has been minted with the society’s logo on the front, and a likeness of the Dean of American Magicians, Jay Marshall, on the reverse. PLEASE NOTE THAT THE BRONZE  was a gift item from the Society to every person who is a member of the S.A.M. or S.Y.M. during our Centennial year.  But the SILVER COIN made from pure .999 silver was a much smaller issue of only 250 pieces and sure to become a very collectible piece!

It has been said that if you put a coin in a magician’s hand, he or she will try to vanish it.
