HI,
Kaps ext used to go to a used coin shop and look for really worn coins the more worn out the coin the less talking.I suppose you could use some really fine emmery paper and wear the coins yourself?

For those who do the classic Miser's Dream with a bucket, I'm curious whether you start with the coin stack already loaded, or whether you are able to pass the bucket around for inspection first. If the latter, how do you obtain the stack and then load it and get it in position without too much noise? I tried lining my bucket with felt which makes the loading and positioning quieter, but after experimenting with coin droppers, etc., haven't found a satisfactory method of obtaining the stack silently.

I've found all that's necessary is to keep the bucket on its side until needed, coins loaded in position. Take the bucket, and simply show it empty. Your hands cover the coins. They'll take your word. No need to pass it around for inspection, casting more suspicion on the bucket than necessary (I think).

Just read through the thread, I have always wanted to perform it but knew that my coin work needed work. I think I will pick up on the tips and give it another try. Thanks for all the tips!

Hi,
I start with the bucket on it's side and the stack in position. I see no benifit in showing the bucket empty. I also throw in to my routine the gag on the "jester pitch " video of comming from a kids ear with a lump of wax! a bit gross I suppose but the kids and Mams and Dads seem to love it! I also make funny (but old) comments when plucking the coins from various children, tipping coins from the childrens party hats, kids specticals and pony tails.
My aim is to make it fun!
