    Object: A bag of "silver" coins

    [Using a cordless microphone, someone clinks coins onto a table.]

    Listen! Someone is counting out coins. Big coins, coins that are probably worth lots of money. From the way they ring, they sound like silver coins.... Maybe even real silver, solid silver.

    Listen! They're talking about how many coins there should be. Hmm, I wonder what they could be buying that's worth so many coins?
