A. Those commenting here on the Penny"s weight … The older "Wheat-back" pennies are about 3.1 grams and the newer ones 2.5-2.6 grams I think, so weighing a bunch of pennies at a time and dividing to find how many dollars worth you have won"t work very accurately to count the pennies unless you have a fair knowledge of how much of each of the older ones and how many new ones are in the bucket. You could "rough it" with: You"re likely to see less than 5% of the old wheat ones on average.

A. Art is correct, largely. The Lincoln penny Wheat Reverse does in fact weight (at pressing) 3.11g, and the new Lincoln Penny with the Shield Reverse weighs in at 2.5g. The Lincoln Memorial Reverse on the other hand, is your largest variable. The wheat penny was made until 1958. From "59 to "82 the Memorial Reverse penny was copper, giving it the same weight of 3.11g. Following that, from "83 until the bi-centennial in "09 and the minting of the shield reverse in "09, the Memorial Reverse Penny began being minted from the copper-plated zinc variety you see today. Long story short = pre-1959, 3.11g1959 forward 2.5gBut a nickel is a nickel, and those are a nickel in grams! 5 ¢= 5g! :)

And ... weight is also then varied due to things like dents, scratches, rust, dirt, corrosion, chips, etc. The difference is marginal, though, as someone stated earlier.Erin AndersonEpic Enterprises - Dallas, Texas, USA^

2003Q. How Much Does a Nickel Weigh?John C. - Dominguez Hills, California^

A. One nickel weighs exactly as much as two dimes^pennies but less than a quarter. . .If you cut a quarter into 10 equal pieces, each piece would weigh 0.57 grams. If you had 75 of those pieces, the total weight would be the same as the weight of 19 dimes.This information is accurate to two decimal places, but is only the average of the three nickels I happen to have in my pocket today :-)Bob Zonis- Bohemia, New York^
2003A. Actually, the precise answer would be 4.5 grams/nickel.75 pieces (of a quarter) x .57 grams = 42.75 grams42.75 grams / 19 dimes = 2.25 grams/dime2.25 grams * 2 dimes (1 nickel is equal to two dimes) = 4.5 gramsThis assumes the information of a quarter equaling 5.7 grams is correct.Scott S. - Bowling Eco-friendly , Kentucky^A. 5 GRAMS FOR A NICKEL, 1 GRAM FOR A DOLLAR BILL.LARRY L. - San Diego, California^

A. US Coinage Penny Standard weight 2.5 grams Nickel Standard weight 5.0 grams Dime Standard weight 2.268 grams Quarter Standard weight 5.670 gramsGregor C - Norman, Oklahoma^A. 4.9 would be the answer if you only had to go to one decimal but weigh it on a 5 decimal place scale to find a funnier one.William J - Beaverton, Oregon^2005A. I would like to add my 2 cents in on this one. First the weight of a penny. A penny (if you weigh 32 of them) can range in weight from 2.42 Grams to 3.18 grams the difference in the range is from .00 come .76 (from penny to penny so weigh more than one to see if your scale falls within this range) . If your scale weighs a penny and its within these acceptable ranges I would say the scale is accurate. if its out of that range I would think its off by the amount outside the range previously stated. Below 2.42 by .1 add .1 of a gram, above 3.18 subtract .1 of a gram, tare or adjust the scale to account for it.A nickel can weigh from between 4.9 and 5.1 grams (weighed a bunch) (heard of 4.8 to 4.85 but only was able to replicate with heavily used nickels or thousands decimal place scales even then about 70 percent of the time they were between 4.9 and 5.1)(depends on the wear, if you wanted to do a real locked down test you could go to the bank and get a fresh from the press new roll of nickels or pennies for that matter). If your scale weighs within that range I would say the scale is accurate to the hundredths decimal place.If you are just checking to see if the scale is accurate, go buy a certified 5.0 gram weight, then get a .5 gram weight, and a .55 gram weight and weigh them together, should be 6.55^6.05.Ok, that"s enough about weighing money, I went a wee bit nuts.

Mr D. - Seattle, Washington^Thanks, Mr D! You rock!Laura W ^A. Weighing money is important and so simple... Dimes, quarters and half dollars are $20/lb, and nickels are only $5/lb, and there are 181 pennies/lb ($1.81) and nobody seems to pick up on this simplicity... Furthermore currency is 6.2"x 2.6" x 0.0043" thick (233/inch) and it takes 375 bills to weigh a lb. Therefore, a briefcase 18.5"x 12.5"x 3" thick will hold $980,000 in $100 bills (two rows of seven <14 stacks> x 3" <700 bills/stack> = $980,000. And it will weigh 26.1 lbs (375 bills/lb). I know this because I am a father to my inquisitive children.Terry H - Davenport, Iowa^
And here we thought that you learned that only $980,000 would fit in a briefcase from countin" the loot :-)I was just about to offer to take the remaining $20,000 off your hands so you wouldn"t need to carry a second briefcase.Rock with Katie Holmes & Queen Lativarobbing the U.S. Mint =>

So a penny weighs 2 grams. In our science class we measured it and it weighed 0.2 gramsMaria G - Chicago, Illinois^Somebody misread the scale, Maria. Depending on how the scale is designed, the mass of the balance weight is not necessarily the weight of the item you are balancing against. Nurses would have a hard time weighing us if they had to slide a 200-pound balance weight along their beam scale :-)Maybe that was the weight of the balance weight?Ted Mooney, P.E.Striving to live Alohachrischona2015.org - Pine Beach, New Jersey^
2007Yep, my scale"s right! 5 grams! Thank you!Lindsey S - Kaufman, Texas^2007Thanks, Gregor Clark, you rock!Mark T - Montgomery, Alabama^2007 All you guys rock. Thank you all for giving this serious thought. Accuracy is essential. Peace.Danielle H - Eugene, Washington^
June 18, 2008no MR D - You seem like a smart guy with all those measurements and stuff but how do you get 6.55 when you add 5.0 + .5 + .55. I"m pretty sure that every time I do that it"s going to come out to 6.05 :-)Seth H - Merrimac, Massachusetts^May 6, 2009Q. What is the volume of a nickel?Walter W - Brook Park, Ohio^
May 12, 2009A. Hi Walter. 1. You can measure the diameter and thickness of a nickel and calculate the approx. volume. 2. Or you can use Archimedes" principle and measure the volume of water that the nickel displaces. 3. Or you can divide its 5.0 gram weight by the density of nickel for a good approximation. Do it all three ways and maybe you have a simple but interesting science project.Regards,Ted Mooney, P.E.Striving to live Alohachrischona2015.org - Pine Beach, New Jersey^
November 2, 2015Current coinage information can be found at:http://www.usmint.gov/about_the_mint/?action=coin_specificationsAnd for the record (assuming current coinage), it is two _pennies_ that weigh the same as a nickel, not two dimes.
