Just like the best tricks in magic, the effect is a simple one: a soon-to-be-stunned spectator gives you a number from 1-100. You remove all the change from your pocket and the total matches exactly!
"Exact Change" by Gregory Wilson is easy to do. You start clean, end clean, can turn your pocket inside out or (if you're cheeky enough) have a spectator reach in for the outcome herself. This is a really great, self-contained effect that many professional performers are using. It resets instantly, uses no palming, no forces, special tailoring, or anything like that. It's a genuine anytime, anywhere miracle.
Question: will it work with any currency?
The gimmick works perfectly out of the box for USA and Canadian coins. With a clever make-shift idea by Jon Allen, the effect can also be done with English and Euro coins. Unfortunately, those are currently the only coins that we are aware of "Exact Change" working for.
"This fooled me entirely! I'm an instant fan and want to do it ASAP!"
"I love being fooled! How do I put this in my next TV special?"
"As real as it gets!"
"A beautiful perfect thing."
"That's #@&^ing amazing!"
"You fried me, I want to put this in my repertoire immediately!"
