The puzzle actually reads "What two coins equal 30 cents but one of them is not a nickel?"

The answer of course is a quarter and a nickel. The quarter is the coin that's not a nickel!

The phrasing for this puzzle is actually "What 2 coins make 30 cents if one of them is not a nickel?"

The answer of course is a 25-cent piece and a nickel. The question says only one coin can't be a nickel, and that's the 25-cent piece.

A quarter and a nickel. That makes thirty cents, and one of them is not a nickel (the quarter).
