This category includes magic with paper currency only, it does not include coin magic. Also, it does not include the Pen or Pencil Through Bill effect, which is covered in the Pen Magic reference page.
None of these effects are for
from this site. All prices are reference "ball-park"
figures only, and are likely not current. Some items may no
longer be available.
There are many effects that can be performed with paper money
a. Bill Switch. A single bill changes into another bill.
b. Bill Transformation. A quantity of bills change into a quantity of different bills.
c. Money Swindle. A quantity of cash is mis-counted in a convincing manner.
d. Torn/Burnt and Restored Bill. A bill (often borrowed), is shredded or burnt and found restored, often in a impossible location such as inside a lemon or a cigarette.
e. Floating Bill. A bill, often borrowed, is caused to float.
This is a large category, so in no way does this list represent an exhaustive listing of possible money magic effects.
