Greed by Daniel Garcia

this is an excellent effect. Daniel Garcia tells you clearly how to make the gimmick step by step. the gimmick is so good it is practically self working. there is a very, very, little amount of slight of hand, until the last part where it's turned into a coin. just a warning to someone who wants to buy it: you will have to spend $7 at least and if you aren't careful it might even be $37.

This is a fantastic effect, but be warned: the new $10 will not work with this effect. You *might* be able to use the new $20, but I would not count on it.
Daniel Garcia does an excellent job of showing how to make the gimmick, but you will want to pause the DVD on a number of occassions. He goes slow, but as he has made many of the gimmicks, he will be much faster than someone who has not.
You will need a GOOD pair of SHARP scissors, or even a paper cutter. Barring that, a metal straight edge and an x-acto knife will work. Neatness counts, so you want to TAKE YOUR TIME making the gimmick. Garcia uses doublestick tape, but I found it to be cumbersome to work with, especially when it came to static electricity grabbing parts of the gimmick before I was ready.
All in all, this is an excellent DVD. I have no regrets buying it, with the exception of not buying it a year or two ago when the needed $10s and $20s were more readily available.
