Fool’s Gold

1st-level Illusion

Casting Time: 1 action
Range: Self
Components: V, S, M (a single real gold piece, and at least 1sp worth of copper)
Duration: Concentration, 1 hour

Casting this spell is likely to make most town markets quite hostile, provided the caster is ever caught. As an action, you disguise normal currency as gold, thus disguising its true nature. You touch a number of copper coins equal to the amount of gold you would like to create, up to 500gp. These copper coins then become gold coins identical to the gold coin material component. The fake gold coins revert to copper if brought more than 15 feet away from the real gold coin, or whenever they are touched by cold iron.

A creature carefully inspecting these coins may notice the illusion on a successful Intelligence check against your spell save DC. This may either be because the copper does not weigh as much as gold, or it might be due to subtle differences in the texture of the copper compared to the etchings shown on the gold coin.
Usable by: Bard, Sorcerer, Wizard
