To the tune of $20, a pound of dimes is considered to be of value. U.S. Mint dimes weigh 2.27 grammes, thus it’s possible to figure out how much a pound of dimes is worth.
Since 1 pound contains 453.59 grammes, the number of dimes in 1 pound may be estimated by dividing 453.59 grammes by 2.27 grammes for a total of around 200 dimes. Since 200 dimes are worth $20 (200 x 10 cents) since each dime is worth $0.10 (ten cents), the value of 200 dimes equals $20. The value of a pound of any other denomination of coins can be computed the same manner.
