## Related Questions Modern (i.e. 1965 and later) US dimes weigh 2.27 gm each which is 0.08 oz. That means 200 dimes weigh about one US pound, so 10 lbs would be 2000 dimes or \$20. One pound of U.S. dollars is equal to \$490.00USD. 20 pounds of dimes equals \$400.00USD. 30 pounds of nickels is equal to \$136.00USD. Assuming you're referring to cents minted after 1982 and dimes minted after 1964, the answer is simple, regardless of whether you estimate or calculate exactly:Estimate:A kilogram is roughly 2.2 US pounds. Dimes weigh only slightly less than cents, thus there are about 2.3 times as many dimes in a kilo versus pennies in a US pound. On top of that, a dime is worth 10 cents so a kilo of dimes is worth roughly 23 times as much as a pound of pennies.Exact calculation:Current US cents weigh 2.5 gm. One US pound is the same as 453.6 gm so there are 453.6 / 2.5 = 181 pennies in a US pound (rounded to the nearest whole amount), or \$1.81Current US dimes weigh 2.27 gm, so there are 1000 / 2.27 = 440 dimes in a kilo (again, rounded), or \$44.(FWIW, 23 x \$1.81 = \$41.63 so the estimate is pretty close to the exact figure!) All US dimes made before 1965 are silver and are worth at least \$1.25. A US dime is worth either:ten penniestwo nickles It depends entirely on what coins you use...for example you'll have more with dimes than with quarters.  Dimes dated 1964 are made of 90% silver and are worth about \$1.35. Dimes dated 1965 are made of copper-nickel and are worth 10 cents.  One dime weighs 2.268 grams, and there are 453.592 grams in one pound. Rounding up, that makes 200 dimes in a pound, which is \$20. The US didn't mint any dimes until 1796.  There has never been an aluminum dime created by the US mint Sorry, no US dimes dated 1973 were struck in silver the last year for silver dimes was 1964.  One US dollar is worth .66 of a pound. So, 2 pounds = 3 dollars. No U.S. dimes were struck in 1932. Look at the coin again.  It's worth exactly 10 cents; the US stopped using silver in circulating dimes in 1964. US dimes made since 1965 weigh about 2.268 grams. There are 680.4 grams in 1 pound 8 ounces. Therefore:680.4 divided by 2.268 = 300 dimes. As of 4/12 one Egyptian pound is equal to .165 US dollars. At present (11 May 2012), one British pound is worth about \$1.61 in US dollars.  One pound in British currency equals \$1.55 in US currency. There is 1.63 in Canadian currency with one British pound. Pre-1965 silver dimes weigh 2.5 gm, assuming minimal wear. A pound is 453.6 gm. Grab your calculator and take it from there.
