It's not impossible to find it and the only hint of it is the quest "Ancient Portal Knowledge", which says that it's lost and player needs to reassemble it. It's unknown what it was supposed to do, there were 5 pieces of them, and it's unknown if it's still in game's files. It got removed soon after official release.
Magic Coin Purse and Epic Magic Coin Purse do stack extra starting cash bonuses. Thus, if a player has both of these Special Items, he/she can have an extra $250 starting cash ($50 + $200, respectively) free of cost for all future games.
