Moneybags is an enemy in Super Mario 64’s Snowman’s Land level. At first, they appear to resemble a regular coin, but once Mario goes near one, it will transform into a coin purse-shaped monster that hops around. Defeating them will earn the player five coins apiece.
Although they look like clams, Moneybags are actually money purses with their zipper undone along with eyes and feet. Due to the lack of a known name at the time when a FAQ was being made, the creator just simply called Moneybags Fake Coins, causing some people to confuse their names.
They are also featured in Coincentration, a minigame in Super Mario 64 DS.
