One is a half dollar and the other is a nickel. You have two coins, ONE is not a nickel, but the other one is!

One is a 50-cent coin, the other is a 5 cent coin....One is not a 5 cent coin, but the other is!!

There are 2 ways of answering it, first is this is usually some form of a "trick question" where the answer is, "a half dollar and a nickel, because the half isn't a nickel". However, a more technical answer would be that you would have one half dollar and one half-dime (half dimes were minted from 1792-1873, they were small 90% silver coins half the weight of a dime, the nickel is much larger and started being minted in 1866 and is 75% copper and 25% nickel)
