In a dollar, how many nickels are there?

A dollar is made up of exactly 20 nickels. Each nickel is worth 5 cents, while a dollar is made up of 100 cents. There are 20 nickels in dollar because 20 multiplied by 5 equals 100.

The nickel is the second-lowest denomination coin in the US currency system, after the penny, which has a denomination of one cent.
