The Mystic Twelve was an exclusive society of magicians in Glasgow, Scotland founded by Fred Burnette in 1920. Meetings were held on the first Sunday of the month at his home in Hamilton Drive and members were under an obligation to perform a trick on each occasion. Membership was by invitation only. Its first membership was recorded in Goldston's Magician Monthly for March 1921.

The Society's medallion was a clock dial with the letters MYSTIC TWELVE replacing the "numerals".

Members included De Vega and later John Ramsay.
