1965 quarter dime hoard?

Sorry to pop any bubble you may have, but assuming the coins are all dated 1965 or later they're only worth face value. Dimes and quarters from 1965 and later are made of copper-nickel and don't have any silver, so they have no value to a metal dealer. However if there are any halves mixed in that are dated 1969 or earlier, they contain anywhere from 40% to 90% silver, so those would be worth more if sold to a metal dealer. If you can't spend them easily, DO NOT TAKE THEM TO A COIN-COUNTING MACHINE! Those machines take 8 to 10 cents out of every dollar put in as a so-called "convenience" fee. Call a couple of banks and see if they take unwrapped coins. If you live in the northeast part of the U.S. there's a big chain bank with a green logo* that will count coins for free. (*) I work for a competing financial company so I can't use specific names.

A man has twenty coins consisting of dimes and quarters If the dimes were quarters and the quarters were dimes he would have ninety cents more than he has now How many dimes and quarters does he have?

20 coins, consisting of dimes and quarters. if the values were switched, the difference would be 90 cents. . This is how i came up with my answer. solving the system: one equation describes the number of coins: x + y = 20 where x is the number of dimes and y is the number of quarters. the other equation describes the amount of money: (0.25x + 0.1y) - (0.1x + 0.25y) = 0.90 (0.25x + 0.1y) describes when the dimes are quarters and the quarters are dimes. (0.1x + 0.25y) describes when the dimes and quarters are their original values. The difference is supposed to be $0.90 or 90cents. Therefore, by the elimination method of solving a system of equations: x + y = 20 #1 (0.25x + 0.1y) - (0.1x + 0.25y) = 0.9 #2 simplify #2 to become: 0.15x - 0.15y = 0.9 #3 x + y = 20 #1 0.15x - 0.15y = 0.9 #3 multiply #1 by 0.15: 0.15x + 0.15y = 3 #4 0.15x - 0.15y = 0.9 #3 add #4 and #3: 0.30x = 3.9 x = 13 therefore, the number of dimes that the man has is 13. to find the number of quarters, x is evaluated in the 1st equation. x + y = 20 13 + y = 20 y = 20 - 13 y = 7 This can be checked as follows. 13 dimes = 130 cents 7 quarters = 175 cents total = 305 cents 13 quarters = 325 cents 7 dimes = 70 cents total = 395 cents The difference between the two is 90 cents. Therefore, the man had 13 dimes and 7 quarters. . By the way, is this a question that you are doing in class, have the answer to and are seeing who can figure it out, or are you proposing it for another reason? Addendum (by PatrickLMT): Actually, this question was featured in the February 26, 1974 comic strip "Peanuts." Peppermint Patty had this question in school and despaired of finding the answer.

How many dimes 6 quarters?

Why do quarters and dimes have the milling on their edges?

Quarters ad dimes, and lager denominations of coins, used to be made of silver, and a few of gold. The value of each coin was basically determined by the value of the silver or gold used to make it.

Why do dimes Quarters and half dollars have notches?

The half-dollar, quarter, and ten-cent coin denominations were originally produced from precious metals. Reeded edges were eventually incorporated into the design of these denominations to deter counterfeiting and the fraudulent use of the coins, such as filing down the edges in an attempt to recover the precious metals. Currently, none of the coins produced for circulation contain precious metals. However, the continued use of reeded edges on current circulating coinage of larger denominations is useful to the visually impaired. For example, the ten-cent and one-cent coins are similar in size; the reeding of the ten-cent coin makes it easily identifiable by touch.

Why are dimes and quarters ridged on the edges?

It's called "milling", and it's a historical relic. At one time, coins were made of precious metals (gold or silver). Unscrupulous people would shave the edges of coins and collect the shavings to melt down. Milling the edges makes it obvious that this has been done, and that the coin therefore wasn't worth full value. Neither quarters nor dimes still contain any gold or silver, but they're still milled, mostly because they've been that way for a long time, and ceasing to mill them would make them look "weird" to people at this point.
