So I weighed all of my bicentennials today and everything seemed to be normal and under the 5.67g but this one weighed in at 5.73g.

*** Moved by Staff to a more appropriate forum. ***







Is this a normal thing to find when weighing coins? I'm a little confused why the weight would be more than 5.67g without any extra dirt or material stuck to the coin.

. Mint tolerance is +/- .19 grams http://goccf.com/t/251134#2113155

The mint is more interested in production than quality so there is an allowable tolerance on the weight of coins.
Sometimes the strip from which the blanks are punched can be slightly thicker or thinner than normal.
In your case the blank was slightly thicker but still within the accepted tolerance.

Got it. Makes more sense now. It seems that the type 2 and type 4 coins overlap in weight being that the weights are both within the tolerance of .19
