Finally got around to counting all of the loose change. Again, here is the picture for reference:
The breakdown came out to something like this:
Pennies: 408 = $4.08
Nickels: 134 = $6.70
Dimes: 207 = $20.70
Quarters: 355 = $88.75
Loonies: 39 = $39
Toonies: 25 = $50
Total = $209.23
Not the highest I have accumulated, but decent Iâ€™d say. I know what surprises most people usually is how many quarters there are as normally one would expect to only have a lot of pennies. Most of my loose change comes from buying items from stores that donâ€™t accept a credit card. Example, if an item was $1.50 most likely I would only have a five dollar bill and so at the end of the day that coin change gets stored.
Almost like a self disciplined savings contribution. I can easily imagine spending it too if I didnâ€™t store it away at the end of the day. Now the trickier part is usually afterwards on what to use the money on as I donâ€™t just want to spend it on say dinner but rather find a way to invest it to hopefully accumulate more funds.
