Dimes in Penny Bags
Pennies come in penny bags. This may seem obvious. But did you know there are plenty of other things in penny bags too? Dimes are the biggest culprit. Nickels, quarters, and euro are common as well. Not to mention the couple times we found teller keys in the penny bags (whoops).
In sealed penny bags from a bank, the amount of dimes can be quite intriguing! In a quality control check today of one individual bag of pennies, there were 68 dimes, 3 quarters, 5 nickels, and 1 silver dime. That’s pretty good for one $50 bag of pennies.
Best record of dimes: 131 dimes, 1 silver dime, 4 quarters, and 1 nickel all in one penny bag!
Of course, not every penny bag will have dimes. Though from our experience, quite a lot of them do. Some may ask, “Why do penny bags have dimes in them?” I’d advise the best solution is to look for yourself. Go grab a dime and a penny. Put them directly on top of each other. Notice the very similar circumference? A lot of coin counting machines accidentally throw those dimes right in there with the pennies. Unfortunately for the customer of the coin counter, their dime gets counted as a penny, creating a nine cent loss. And though that’s a whole different issue, it answers why dimes end up in those penny bags for you and us to find.
