A roll of quarters weighs 8 ounces. A quarter weighs 0.2 ounces, and a standard roll of quarters contains 40 coins. Multiplying the weight of one quarter by the number of quarters yields the total weight.

A roll of quarters is valued at $10. Coin rolls contain varying numbers of coins, depending upon the denomination of the coin. Rolls of pennies or dimes contain 50 coins, rolls of nickels or quarters contain 40 coins, and rolls of half dollars have 20 coins. Dollar rolls contain 25 coins. Of these coins, the roll of half dollars and the roll of quarters, both of which weigh the same, weigh the most.
