Value of Coins

Aspen Higgins & Bryse Hoyt

Which one is worth more?

The weight in pennies matching your weight or the height in quarters matching your height?

We did a comparison between the 2 of us.

We used the value of pennies today, as well as on the side the value of copper within pre 1982 pennies.

We only used one type of quarter, this being the modern day quarter because the value within the quarter has never been more than what the quarter is worth.

Our findings are thus

The value of the pennies overweighed the value of the quarters for both us.

The value of pre 1982 pennies supercedes the value of both previous coins by a very wide margin.
