This effect can only be done one-on-one with a willing spectator, because the spectator has to close their eyes at a crucial moment. If they peek they will see how it is done. It uses an old bar bet type of trick that is done with a bill and a coin and turns it into a magic effect.
How would you like to be able to magnetize currency? Well, now, you can create the illusion of doing so in just one second. With Magnetic Money by mentalist Mike Kempner, you will be able to instantly (in a matter of one second) demonstrate to your spectator that you are able to magnetize currency, and the best part? The spectator herself can provide you with the currency, no need to bring any props with you and no switch needed. All conditions are fair, yet you are able to do something impossible.
The spectator provides you with her own one dollar bill (it doesn't have to be one dollar, it can be any global currency bill) and one coin...it can be any coin. Let's assume it's a quarter. You accept this and do not switch it because there is no need with this fantastic technique. You tell your spectator that you are going to magnetize the dollar bill and the quarter so that they are attracted to each other. Of course, she doesn't believe you and challenges you to demonstrate. You accept the challenge. You begin by holding the dollar bill stretched with both of your hands, so that it is positioned vertically (not horizontally). You ask the spectator to hold the quarter 2 feet above this dollar bill that you are holding vertically. When she has done this, you ask her to close her eyes and drop the quarter and later open her eyes again. Believe it or not, the quarter sticks to the edge of the dollar bill, and it doesn't fall off. The dollar bill and the quarter can be examined completely and immediately because they are borrowed and ungimmicked. And the spectator can touch both during the effect, as there are no strings or any other props at play. It is simply the dollar and the quarter, that's truly it. A stunning display of money magnetism by a mentalist.

This effect will never work. It’s impossible to pull off. Spend your money elsewhere. I’m not a fan of writing negative reviews but this is the worst.
