Questions and answers on how to convert things from one unit or system to another
Forum rules
Dear forum visitors,

Our forum has been available for many years. In September 2014 we decided to switch it to read-only mode. Month after month we saw less posts with questions and answers from real people and more spam posts. We were spending more and more resources cleaning the spam until there were less them 1 legitimate message per 100 spam posts. Then we decided it's time to stop.

All the posts in the forum will be available and searchable. We understand there are a lot of useful information and we aren't going to remove anything. As for the new questions, you can always ask them on FaceBook page

Thank you for being with us and sorry for any inconveniences this could caused.

Crap, it won't let me post a link to the US Mint specifications.

Coin weights are specified in grams by the Mint
Penny 2.500 g
Nickel 5.000 g
Dime 2.268 g
Quarter 5.670 g
Half Dollar 11.340 g
Dollar coin 8.1 g

(All US paper bills are 1 g)
There are 453.592 g per pound, You do the math.

Only registered users are allowed to post links, sorry. Before we imposed this limitation our forum was full of spam. Prohibiting links for unregistered users proved to be the only effective way to keep the forum relatively clean.
