We started with MICHAEL FINNEY being the first we honored in 2016, with our unique, BEAUTIFUL collectible coins!  Followed by EUGENE BURGER in 2017, then GENE ANDERSON in 2018.  2019 brought us ROCCO SILANO as our Mystery Magician and honoree coin.  2020 was a unique year with the Covid-19 Pandemic.  Sadly, we had to cancel the convention – our special guest Mystery Magician was HARRY MONTI.  We decided to GIVE AWAY the entire lot of 100 collectible coins to our attendees who graciously “rolled over” their registrations to 2021.
Our 2021 convention was ALSO cancelled due to the pandemic (DRAT!) – our Mystery Magician we honored was the first husband & wife team to be immortalized on one of our collectible coins – CHUCK & JAN JONES!  We decided to also GIVE AWAY the entire lot of 100 collectible coins to our attendees who graciously “rolled over” their registrations to 2022.

2022 brought us our first “hand-painted” coin honoring JEFF HOBSON!

2023 was our “Lucky 13th” year – and we honored the incredible, CHRISTOPHER HART with a stunning Purple inlayed design featuring Christopher and his famous “Addams Family THING Hand”!

The TRADITION continues at AbraCORNdabra, The Midwest’s PREMIER Magic Convention..
We will have a limited number of minted collectible coins (Limited to just 100 coins minted for each year!) that will feature our yearly MYSTERY MAGICIAN on them.  The coins cost $20.00 during the FIRST YEAR they are offered…
The remaining unsold coins go UP in value & cost by $10 each year.
