One roll of nickels would consist of 40 nickels weighing 200 grams or 0.440924 pounds.

In addition, the nickel is made of a metal composition containing 75% copper and 25% nickel.

## how many nickels are in a dollar

There are 20 nickels in a dollar. One nickel is equal to five cents (0.05). One dollar requires 100 cents. 0.05 cents X 20 = 100 cents. ## How many nickels are in a pound

One pound of nickels contains 91 nickels.

One nickel weighs 5 grams or 0.0110231 pounds. Furthermore, 1 pound divided by 0.0110231 equals 90.718581 nickels or 91 nickels rounded up.

A \$200 face value bag weighs 44 pounds. In addition, contains 4000 nickels. And one roll of nickels is \$2 containing 40 nickels and there are 20 nickels in a dollar.

2000 lbs / 44 lbs = 45.4545 bags. Meanwhile, in dealing with sealed bags, is rounded down to 45 bags = 1980 pounds.

45 bags = \$9,000 = 180,000 nickels in a ton.
