  1. ok ive heard that a nickel weighs 5 grams but is that true?
    and if so, how many grams do other coins weigh?
  2. dime =1 gram
    penny =1.5 grams
    nickle = 4 grams
    quarter = 5 grams
    half dollar =7.5 grams

    ... just weighed those coins with my hand scales..
  3. A nickel weighs 5 grams. That's how you balance out hand-held scales. If your nickel doesn't weigh 5 on them, then you bend them around until it does. A nickel will weigh 5 on digital scales, too, if you want to check.
  4. 1-penny coins used to be 3.6, 2-pennys 7.0 in the UK, which was properly handy-like...

    now they've started using cheaper metal or something to make them, so they all weigh random amounts these days... fuck knows how they sort them all down the bank until they're regulated again...
