Great Britain 2005 – Centenary of the Magic Circle - 'Heads or Tails' Scratch off Stamp.

Issue date: 15 March 2005

On a summer's day in 1905, twenty three amateur and professional magicians gathered together at London's Pinoli's Restaurant with the intention of forming a magic club. The result was the founding of The Magic Circle.  The Magic Circle today, is a premier magical society in the fascinating world of magic and illusion.

Royal Mail celebrated the Centenary of the Magic Circle with a set of 5 novelty stamps. Each stamp sought to bring a very simple magic trick to life. Among the five stamps issued was a 1st Class stamp depicting a coin with a blank center that can be scratched away to reveal either the head or tails to simulate the 'Heads or Tails' in the tossing of a coin.
