    Just to make sure...

    If I go to the bank, and get boxes of things, how many rolls, and what is the face value

    Pennies-$25 and 50 rolls

    What about nickels, and dimes, quarters and halves?
    Thanks everyone :)

    I have a couple boxes of nickels and they are a $100 box ..50 rolls x $20 in a roll.
    I also have 4-5 quarters boxes and they are a $500 box ...50 rolls at $10 in a roll.

    I never had an interest in dimes. I hate Rosies.

    I think you mean $2 per nickel roll.

    That's what I was just thinking. A $20 roll would be huge!

    So everything is 50 rolls to a box, basically :)
    Makes sense :)

    We oldtimers tend to think of bags rather than boxes. A bag was 100 rolls or $50, $200, $500, $1000, and $1000 for cents through half dollars. A box is half a bag.

    Dollar coins are a little different though. The old large size dollars were $1000 bags or 50 rolls and thy never came in boxes as far as I know. The small size dollars came $2000 to the bag or 80 $25 rolls. And they come in 10, 20, and 40 roll boxes ($250, $500, and $1000)

    Gold coins came in $5,000, $10,000, and $20,000 bags for half eagles through double eagles I don't know if quarter eagles came in $2,500 or $5,000 bags, They didn't come in boxes either.
