Launching today from Penguin Magic, Westminster Elite Playing Cards. Penguin has been doing a pretty nice job on their in house deck releases. Spotlighting some great designers and their fantastic work.
So the information we've been given from Penguin on their new deck:
Westminster playing cards are the ultimate collaboration between England and the US. Designed by Phill Smith (creator of Stegosaurus and the DMC Black/Gold Marked deck), the Westminster deck is inspired by the gothic architecture of Westminster Abbey and offers a timeless look combined with a premium feel.
Printed by USPCC on high-end Bicycle stock with top-of-the-line finish, traditionally cut, and with metallic green ink on the back design, these cards are just as amazing to handle as they are to look at. The deck features a custom Ace of Spades, custom gargoyle jokers with a built-in reveal effect, as well as a duplicate 2H and a versatile gaff card.
Classic enough for any poker table or magic routine, yet beautiful enough for cardistry with its intricate design and metallic backs, this is a deck that you will love to use!
- Limited 1st Edition
- Custom Back Design in Green Metallic Ink
- Custom Ace of Spades
- Custom Gargoyle Jokers with Reveal Effect
- High-Grade Bicycle Stock & Magic Finish, Printed by USPCC

Westminster should appeal to a wide range of Playing Card aficionados. The intricate design coupled with the familiarity of a poker deck keeps it unique enough without distraction. At the time of publication we did not have an exact release time or price. Once we receive the information we'll be sure to update it here for our readers. I would suspect, in what's become a pattern at Penguin Magic, a nice discount on brick purchases for early buyers.
Keep up to date with information on Westminster, along with everything Penguin Magic on social media. Follow them on Facebook, Instagram and of course their main site at Penguin Magic.
We want to thank our friends at Penguin for the opportunity to bring our readers some info and images of their new products.
