History and Trivia:
The famous magician and mystery writer Walter Gibson introduced the concept of this trick.
Prior to the introduction of the "nickel", five-cent pieces were made of silver and were called half-dimes. After the Civil War, silver was in short supply, so the coin was changed to a copper/nickel alloy. Thus the term "nickel" came to be used.
According to a March 12, 2012 article in the Wall Street Journal, it now costs the U.S. Treasury Department 11.2 cents to manufacture a nickel coin.
