I'm not to sure how much is there but you really sld go threw at least the quarters and dimes. Anything older than 1965 is 90 percent silver and much more valuable than face value...like 1.50 a dime and quarter around 4.50. Also may have some rarer coins worth money. I'd definitely pull the silver tho as its going to go way up over the next 5 or so years.

712.14.

Quoted from bigd1979:

1965 and 1966 for Canadian dimes and quarters too. Not as much silver but worth more than face value.

I have a silver 1968 Canadian quarter.

#162 10 months ago

$1004.69

Quoted from KozMckPinball:

There were some silver 1968 Canadian coins which were 50% silver compared to 80% for 1967 and prior. Most 1968 coins were nickel.

Verbal communication with the bank confirms that the coin machine is indeed operational today...

#165 10 months ago
Quoted from cosmokramer:

Gross weight 101lbs
Tare weight 2 lbs
Net weight of coins 99lbs

Sticking with my ~$700.00 estimate. I already know how heavy $300+ dollars in coins weighed.

And are you going to post how much of each denomination there is?

#166 10 months ago

1177.71 *REVISED

Damn, that was my third guess! Congrats!

#172 10 months ago

Thank you for doing this. A lot of fun.

LTG : )

#173 10 months ago

Oh damn, I was only off by $62.15. You had a little higher quarter ratio than I expected.

For reference, if that 99-pound bag had been ALL quarters, it would have been worth just shy of $2,000. It looked like it was almost but not quite half quarters... so the ratio of dimes (lightweight!) vs pennies (heavier but worthless!) and Nickels (like a quarter but also worthless!) was the real wildcard.

Fun diversion, thanks!

#174 10 months ago

I would like to update my guess

#175 10 months ago

I'm off by $5.37 (second guess)

#176 10 months ago

You should add the 89 rejected coins to the total.

#177 10 months ago

I wonder what the 89 rejected coins were?
Perhaps tokens, dirty, damaged, foreign coins?
Just curious.
11,893 coins is quite a haul.

#178 10 months ago

I was short by $4.32.
I didn't go over Bob.

#179 10 months ago

$1238.88

Was I close?

#180 10 months ago
Quoted from Electrocute:

Is it your best guess without going over?

....and give them 10%? Think I’ll just let my pile of change continue to grow.

Nope. Self checkout machines accept coins. I buy stuff and pay cash in all coins. No fees.

#181 10 months ago

The 89 rejected coins were put through a few times...only 17 were ultimately not accepted totaling $2.16

Thanks for participating

"Hey Jake! There's got to be at least seven dollars in change here!"

#184 10 months ago

That is an abnormally high ratio of quarters!

#185 10 months ago

Holy shit that's a lot!

#186 10 months ago

Looking forward to your 500 fish sandwich purchase in the Filet O Fish thread.

#187 10 months ago

Well.............since the numbers I picked for this guessing game (which was a pretty fn cool thread btw..) weren't spot on................ maybe my picks for tonight's Powerball will be!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

#188 10 months ago

My First guess, which I changed and my second guess,when totalled up together was the exact final count !

#189 10 months ago

$ 1238.88 wait, I had the last 3 digits perfectly. $688.88

#190 10 months ago

Dang, I almost put $1250 and bumped it up to $1450

#191 10 months ago
Quoted from cosmokramer:

This took about 4 years to accumulate, my wife and I both tossing in loose change at the end of the day.
I will post the weight on friday night and then post the final tally on Saturday.
The bank has a counting machine (I just need to call ahead and make sure it is working) and dont charge a percentage if you have an account there.

Avg of .86 cents per day added over the 4 years.

#192 10 months ago

Has a winner been declared? (Not me, I didn't even guess.)

#193 10 months ago

That was fun. I was only $128.25 off.

I remember years back I had two Growlers full of coins and I cashed them in to go to the casino for my buddy's bachelor party, it got me over $900...

Your picture looked somewhat similar in size..

#194 10 months ago

What are you going to do with the money?

Quoted from DanQverymuch:

I was hoping someone else would do the heavy lifting and declare themselves winner, but since that didn't happen I will look back and declare a winner when I have some time...

Our cruise booking guy called with a last minute deal one a 7 day cruise that we couldnt pass up...the Missus and I are heading to Cabo again...

This is the closest guess, but was placed after weight was posted...

Eric had the closest guess before weight was posted (1,234.56), then his guess was poached by 1 cent, Price is Right style...

#197 10 months ago

No wonder there's been a coin shortage across the country lately!
