"You've found some Niffler's Fancy! This plant is very rare and highly sought-after! See the gleaming copper-like leaves which some primitive wizards were known to use instead of coins! Nobody's yet studied its potion-making potential. Gather some — you will make your name as the first to study this extraordinary plant."
Zygmunt Budge[src]

Niffler's Fancy was a rare plant with magical properties. It had gleaming leaves that shone like copper,[1] and were thus named since Nifflers had an affinity for shiny objects.[2]

The shiny leaves of this plant were known to have been used as one of the earliest forms of wizarding currency, by primitive wizards. Perhaps because of this, Niffler's fancy was a rare plant, and its properties in potion-making were not well-known or studied; however, it was known that it was a powerfully magical potion ingredient, since it was one of the constituents of the Potion of All Potential.[1]
