Money Magic by Will Blyth

Entertaining tricks and amusements with coins.

From the introduction:

This volume has been subdivided into three parts. The first part, comprising tricks necessitating special coins or apparatus, will involve a little outlay. This outlay, however, is not a big item, and a few shillings spent at one of the conjuring depots, whose addresses are to be found among the advertising matter in this book, will place the reader in possession of some really effective tricks. That is, provided the performer carefully follows the detailed workings given in the book; he should then be able to amuse and entertain both young and old with the material at his disposal. The second part of the book, dealing with money tricks requiring no special coins or apparatus, is really the most important section of the book. As soon as your friends know that you are able to perform conjuring tricks, you will be in constant demand. Very often the request for an item or two finds you quite without ordinary conjuring apparatus. But you are deemed to be a magician, and possessed of wondrous powers which enables you to do tricks at all times, and in all places. Such is the idea of many people who greet you with "Show us a few tricks, please" and to refuse would result in great loss of prestige. In the second part of this book, the performer will find much that will help him to give an interesting show, any time and anywhere. All that is required being a few coins, and the knowledge of "how to put it over," or, showmanship. The third part consists of impromptu effects and puzzles, more suitable for the family circle, or at the dinner table. In most of them of course the solution has to be disclosed in the demonstration, but the entertaining factor should not be lost sight of, even in these simple items.
