This is an interesting question.

According to the US mint the average quarter weighs 5.670 g which converts to about .2 oz

.2 x n = 1 ounce with n being the number of coins it takes to make once ounce.

.2 x 5 = 1 ounce - so this means 5 quarters per ounce.

There are 16 ounces per pound so 5 coins x 16 oz = 80 coins per pound

80 coins (in each pound) x 50 pounds = 4000 quarters

I may be off a few coins because I had to round off the ounces. But approx 4000 modern US quarters per 50 pounds.

HA and who said you never use math once you leave school!
