Imagine somebody from the early 20th century saving all those pennies and then taking them to the bank in wheel barrels .

I'd prefer 19th century with jugs full of large cents!

Is hoarding that many coins a mental illness or just a metal illness?

Publicity for the bank, and a story for ABC news, else I doubt they would have taken them.
They need the publicity, that parking lot looks very empty at 1:15 in the video.
I thought there would be way more money than $5136.14
I suppose I learned a large water cooler jug of cents holds about $340.00.

I remember hearing quite some time ago that volume wise, silver dimes are worth the most with the space they take up. A jug of dimes is worth more than a jug of quarters or halves.
There's a tip for you silver bullion coin hoarders. LOL

A penny saved, is a hernia earned!

So then, Mr. Smarty, which has more face value, a jug of dimes or a jug of quarters?

That's a lot of pennies.

That's a lot of cents?

I think the word penny has its place.

Well, for the most part, the accumulation WAS unsearched.

Given they were filled to the very top and were the exact same size jugs, a jug of dimes would have more face value inside by the information I have posted. I think it has something to do with the coin surfaces and unoccupied space.
Of course, this experiment can be done on a smaller scale. (which I might try)

Thanks. Wouldn't surprise me at all. Ditto with quarters versus half dollars, I'm assuming?

I'm guessing the $10 bills, unless you shredded them. Lets take $5K, which is only 500 $10 bills, which would fit easily in a single jug. Doubt you could fit $5K worth of quarters into a single jug.
