Re: I have a 5 gallon bucket of change. How much is it worth?
I know that 300.00, in quarters, weighs 16 1/2 lbs.
The rest of the math is beyond me.
It seems to me, to answer this question, is highly speculative because the writer does not mention the mix of coins and we have no idea how loosely or tightly packed they are or how orderly arranged.
One would have to account no only for the space in pail being occupied by the coins, but, also, the space not occupied by the coins.
My guess is: that you probably have about 800-900 dollars there.
If you want to cash it out, find a bank that has a coin counting machine and take them in and open an account using the coins. When they are counted, close the account at earliest time, without incurring an early closing fee. I have done this before.

'got a pint jar that when filled with mixed change will have about $30 in it. Times the 40 pints in 5 gallons = $1200

I recently cashed in a gallon milk jug filled with change; I got about $275. So I'd guess $1500 or so in your bucket.

I bet you have about $2500-$3000 in there. Just a bet.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 782016


More than that if it's an even mix of change. I had a water jug (you know the kind that goes on top of the cooler at work), and it was only a little more than a third full and I pulled $2700 out of it. A five gallon bucket full, $7000 - $10,000 easy.

You do realize that Change is non-fiat money, don't you? But in order to actually use the inherent value of the metals you have to break the law and deface or melt it down, which is illegal. Catch-22.

Had a pringles can full of change, no metal dollars or half dollars, but all the others, had around $70 in it.

The actual amount will vary depenind of course on just which type of coin it is.

Re: I have a 5 gallon bucket of change. How much is it worth?
I cashed in a 5 gallon cast iron milk can a few years ago and it had $3,256.19... It was about 3/4 of the way full of mixed change.

I have 5 more cans full and one that is 1/2 full now -

It's my version of emergency savings... and people think these are just for decoration in my family room - lol
(they're literally holding coin...)

Good Luck OP - it's usually more than you think... it's a pleasant surprise~!

Make sure you go through them before you cash them in and take out all of the valuable coins, like silver nickels & copper pnnies and anything with an indian head. Also, take out any coins that are double stamped (2 heads, or 2 tails) and any old coins... you'll be surprised at how many collector coins you'll end up with...

Remaining friends is only a viable option if there are no romantic feelings left in either of them, otherwise it leads to heartbreak. A clean cut is necessary in that case. I like how you think :) :hf:

Re: I have a 5 gallon bucket of change. How much is it worth?
I had a 12 ounce cup (volume) of mixed coins. It was worth about $20. It was probably light on quarters because I'd frequently "rob" them from the stash.

Five gallons of coins would be 640 ounces. Divide that by 12 and you get about 54 times the $20, which comes to somewhere in the neighborhood of $1,080. With more quarters, the value could be much higher since your ratio to pennies and nickels would be much higher.

BTW, quarters and dime are equal in terms of value vs. their volume. IOW, 2.5 dimes takes up the same space as one quarter. At least I read that in a book, so it's probably true.

I don't uderstand what your saying. In your first sentence you say two people can remain friends after a breakup. Yet you go on to say a clean cut is necessary. I take the latter to mean they can't remain friends.

Women I breakup have a problem being friends but yet if a woman breaks up with me, I never have a problem being friends with her. Why is that?

You will probably get the most out if it if you bring it to scrap trade since the metal is worth more than the value printed on it.
