A pound of nickels is the equivalent of 90.7 nickels. Each nickel weighs 0.176 ounce. Since 16 ounces equals 1 pound, 16 must be divided by 0.176 to discover how many nickels are in a pound.

One pound of nickels is worth about $4.55. With each nickel having a thickness of approximately 0.08 inch, a pound of nickels stacked one on top of the other reaches a height of 7.28 inches. Since each nickel has a diameter of 0.835 inch, placing 1 pound of nickels side by side would make a line that reaches a length of 6 feet 3.99 inches.
