These dealers care nothing for Kino. They make their living short changing people to make a profit. His trick with the coin suggests that his dealings with Kino are based on smoke and mirrors so he can take advantage of Kino. Like his coin, appearing and disappearing, the buyer is trying to convince Kino of the illusion that his pearl is worth nothing.
