A bag of quarters weighs about 35 pounds, or 16 kilograms. This is a rough estimate, since the weight of a bag of quarters depends on how many coins it contains and the size of each coin. A quarter is 25.8 millimeters (1 inch) in diameter and 2.5 millimeters (0.1 inches) thick. In metric units, that’s approximately 9 grams per coin, so one pound of quarters would weigh about 1 kilogram (2.2 pounds).
If you find yourself with a large amount of change, check out these tips for counting and storing your quarters, dimes and nickels before you put them into bags for storage or transport:
Count all your coins before putting them into bags or containers for transport or storage. If you don’t have time for an accurate count, make sure to count at least every fifth coin to get an approximate total value of what’s in your container before using it to transport money or store it at home.
2) Don’t mix coins from different banks or states together in one container unless they’re in rolls (or tubes) made specifically for multiple types of coins — otherwise they’ll all end up clumped together when you.
