    How many cents in a 5 gallon bucket?

    Hello,

    I am thinking about selling my copper cents and have about two 5 gallon buckets full. Does anyone know approx. how many cents fit in a 5 gallon bucket? Answers I have found online range from $300-500. Can anyone tighten that gap for me? Thanks. HH!!

    I would think it would be higher say around $500-$700.

    Weight them. A penny weighs 2. 5 grams which is ~0.006 lbs, so what ever the bucket weights divide it by .006

    A zinc penny weighs 2.3-2.6 grams
    A copper penny weighs 2.9-3.1 grams

    I have had copper ones come in at 2.8 and 3.2 before but its uncommon.

    Get a measurement cup used in the kitchen. There are 16 cups to a gallon and 80 cups in 5 gallon. Count how many pennies in a cup multiply by 80 to get how many pennies then divide by 100 to get dollars. Then multiply that by 2 since you have 2 five gallon jugs. I would say right at $650.

    Selling them online + time and hassle = cheaper to just dump them in a coin machine, homie.

    Well I went to the trouble of sorting them. I put an ad on craigslist. If someone wants to pick them up they can buy them for 1.5-2 per. Otherwise they can sit at my place a while longer.
