I found some very large "replica" coins in the gift shop (the ENTRANCE gift shop, not the always notorious 'gift shop you have to go through in order to leave the park' gift shop Smile ).

Now, they arent exact replicas, but good enough to use in many instances. What surprised me was the variety. Here's what I saw:

penny
nickel
dime
'64 Kennedy
Franklin Half
WL Half
Morgan Dollar
Peace Dollar
Seated Liberty

Don't know the material, but definitely metal. $3 or $4 apiece, IIRC.

Just a heads up.
My ex-cat was named "Muffin". "Vomit" would be a better name for her. AKA "The Evil Ball of Fur".

I just got a jumbo Morgan from the bay for $3. It was from usa, Texas I think and is a dull metal. goes good with my soft, oxidized Morgans. I also got a penny 3" from the local coin shop for a few bucks. Maybe a jumbo spell bound routine?

I bought my Morgans replicas from China when I was there, and I am happy with them. 4 RMB each (about $0.65). Made of some brownish base metal with a dull silvery coating. A bit lighter than real silver dollars and not as nice, but so much cheaper. I don't think any lay person would notice the difference in a performance setting. http://www.52magic.cn/product.asp?id=3328
