The other day I took all of the change from the tray in my truck and put it into the 5 gallon water bottle that we store it in and noticed that it was over half full and was curious how much was in there. I searched online and found several discussions where they had values from $5-$14 per pound and around $800-$2500 for a full container. This is mixed change that we have gathered for the last couple of years. When I was in college I dealt poker and we used real quarters instead of chips for the rake, and I would take home between $5 and $10 every night for my emergency fund. A crown royal bag from a 750ml bottle was right around $300 for just quarters, but I didn't save the nickles dimes or pennies. I dont have anything personal to reference for how the distribution of mixed change would affect the total value. Anyone else save change like this, and have data for the value?
