Welcome, Shemesh9, to the forum. It's pretty standard stuff, but it does require a certain something, a standard dealer item. Here's one example, currently out of stock, but now you know enough to find others.

Please take a few minutes to go to the Introductions page and tell us a little about yourself.

I didn't mean the bending magic.
In the first magic he gives the guy an option to take as many coins as he wants. And tells him exactly how much he took

Yeah, I'm with Ray. That blew right by me. I thought he was just asking the guy to select a random coin for the bending effect. 

Gregory Wilson has an has a marketed trick with a similar effect. The name escapes me, but if you look on Penguin Magic, VI, or another large retailer and search for Gregory Wilson, you'll probably find it easy enough.

You mean
Exact Change by Gregory Wilson
 

But that's not it ..  the spectator takes as many coins as he wants without the intervention of a magician

I understand. I realize it's not the same trick, but like I said, the effect is similar. Unless someone on the board speaks the language we may not be able to help since there may be an equivoque or something similar at play. Have you considered contacting the magician from the program and asking if he's willing to share the name and source of the trick?

Until I get a translation it seems to me the magician tells the host to dig into the bowl and grab a handful of coins. The host cups his hands around them so the magician cannot see how many. The magician tells the host to shake the coins in his cupped hands so that he can attempt to divine the total of the coins. The magician announces his prediction and the coins are totaled up and the amount matches. For the purposes of this trick, the value of the coins is added up.

If it isn't a stooge, no clue. That presumes the coins in the bowl are fair. They do go back to the bowl, so that discounts one of my theories.

You might get better info asking a mentalist (?) This looks like a type of mentalism done with coins.
