Riddle

A magician comes to a small bridge carrying 3 pieces of gold. A sign if front of the bridge reads "Weight Limit 180 lbs." The magician weighs 178 lbs and each piece of gold weighs 1 lb each. After thinking for a bit the magician is able to cross the bridge with all 3 pieces of gold in one trip. How was the magician able to cross the bridge with all 3 pieces of gold?
In this scenario let's say that the bridge is weak enough to collapse with 1 extra pound more than the limit.
