What Is the Number of US Quarters in a Pound?

One pound contains 80 U.S. quarters. There are 453.59237 grammes in a pound, and a U.S. quarter weighs 5.67 grammes. That amount equals 80 quarters when it is divided by the weight of a quarter, 5.67 grammes.

The United States Mint carefully crafts each quarter to be identical. A copper and nickel alloy known as cupronickel is used to make coins.

A quarter has a thickness of 1.75 millimetres and a diameter of 0.955 inches. There are 119 reeds (ridges) on the side of each quarter, which form the quarter’s edge. While the sides of dimes and half-dollar coins also contain reeds, pennies and nickels have plain sides.
