Best Answer

The US struck 2 cent coins from 1864 to 1873, but never a 2.5¢ coin.

However there were $2.50 gold coins up till 1933, and the ubiquitous quarter is an analogous denomination. Neither one fits into a strict decimal coinage system, which would use 20 cent and 2 dollar coins instead.

When does cent become cents isn't one a cent and anything more than that cents?

"Cents" is the plural of "cent". This could be a little confusing, so pay attention. Referring to value, you can have 1 cent, 2 cents, 10 cents, 50 cents, etc. Example - apples are 1 cent each, oranges are 2 cents each. Referring to coins, you can have a 1 cent coin, a 5 cent coin, a 10 cent coin, etc. Example 1 - I have a 1 cent coin, a 2 cent coin and a 10 cent coin in my pocket. Example 2 - I have two 1 cent coins, three 2 cent coins and four 10 cent coins in my pocket. You are referring to the coins and describing them by their values.

How to make 63 cents with 7 coins?

There are many countries (or regions) that use cents as their minor currency units. They do not all have the same coinage. For example, the US has a 25 cent coin but not a 20 cent coin whereas the Eurozone has a 20 cent coin but not a 25 cent coin. Thus, it is necessary to know which country or region the question refers to. But since you have not bothered to share that crucial bit of information, I cannot provide a more useful answer.
