How to count coins?

Gather all of your coins together. Empty your change jars,pants pockets,coin purse,piggy bank,and any other places you have holding your coins.

• Separate the coins into piles based on their type. Create individual piles for each coin type. All coins worth a certain amount should be grouped together.
• Work with one coin type at a time. Pull one pile of a particular coin type in front of you. Put the rest of your change aside for now.
• Create stacks of 10 coins each. Start creating short vertical piles,with each stack having 10 coins in it.
• Count the number of stacks you have and multiply by 10. Look at your stacks of that coin type and count how many full stacks you have.
• Multiply the total number of coins you have by the coin’s value. The number you get is the total amount of money you have in that coin type.
• Factor in the leftover coins that didn’t make a full stack of 10.
• Repeat this process for the other coin types you have. Make stacks of 10,count the stacks,then multiply by 10.
• Add up the final amounts for each coin to get a total amount. Plug each coin type’s final amount into a calculator.
• Roll your change as you get it. To avoid counting huge piles of coins,get coin wrappers from your local bank and roll the change yourself.
