After a shake, a printed picture of a coin appears on the bag, and then, a jumbo 7-inch (17 cm) half-dollar coin falls out. The magician turns the bag over and shows a picture of a bill. When the bag is opened, a wad of paper currency appears.
Offbeat Money Effect
I found this one offbeat and rather odd. The bag with its money sign takes on the appearance of a money bag that a robber in a cartoon would carry. While the effect does work in two phases and offers two surprise productions, Im not sure that average spectators are fooled into thinking where did that come from? But perhaps Im thinking too much like a magician and not a lay spectator.
This routine could fit at the end of a money trick or misers dream sequence. Personally, I find this one a tad cheesy-something more for a childrens performer. Perhaps the best way to see if the effect may fit in your show is to watch the video (click here to view the video).
