Despite their name, Moneybags are more clam-shaped then bag-shaped, but they do carry around a lot of money. The rare arctic Moneybags can disguise themselves as coins.

OTHER BACKGROUND INFO:
"Moneybags are rare but potentially lucrative enemies. They're vulnerable to most conventional attacks, but will try to flee by running through pit areas in hopes that you'll fall. Moneybags spit out a coin each time you hit them, and if you hit them repeatedly, they'll drop a 1-Up Mushroom." - New Super Mario Bros. Player's Guide
