    Get a box, it'll be like Christmas morning opening it up and finding out how many half dollars are in a $500 box

    Okay, work with me here. There are 20 half dollars in a roll and that makes $10. So there are ALWAYS twice as many coins as there are dollars, so a $500 box is 1,000 coins. PLEASE tell me you were kidding.... PLEASE?

    If this math is too hard for you, you might want to consider a different hobby. I hear wood carving is fun.

    How can you have twice as many coins as dollars?
    I thought the box only had halves in it.
    Do the banks do mixed boxes?

    OK there are 500 dollars face value in a box right. Now how many half dollars are there in a dollar face value? Two. So there should be 2 half dollars for every dollar in face value in the box. So 2 times 500 equals 1000 half dollars. Got it?

    Sum CTers aint got no edumikation i reckon.
    I congratulated so, i can figure it out in my head. 50 rolls × 25 coins in a roll equals =
    1250 ÷2 = 625 so...... There are $625 worth of Kennedys in a $500 box. :troll:

    If a bkx of halfs cost $500.00 and they are in 10 dollar rolls its $500.00 ÷ 10 = 50 rolls per box
