Miser's Dream is a classic coin production routine in which coins are are seemingly plucked from thin air and dropped into a bucket.

The name of the routine was imported by T. Nelson Downs in 1895, which had previously been known as "Aerial Treasury".

This was previously used long before by de Linski under the name Le Rêve de l'Avare (The Dream of the Miser)[1]

Robert-Houdin was doing his version called "Shower of Money" by 1852.
