    Default OT maybe? Depends where the funds go. Might be tooling. :D Any guesses?

    So I have been saving my change for a few years. I used to have a smaller container that would fill up within a year or so and be around $100-150ish when I cashed it in. Then I moved up to this container. It is the biggest cheesy ball container you can get. I haven't found any real size on the container other than it boasts "1000 cheesy balls".

    So whats your guess on the amount? To give some idea, when my $100-150 jar was full I dumped it into this container and it filled it maybe half way up the dollar.

    How did I know when I saw that jar, that there was going to be a contest involved?

    The diameter appears to be about 12 inches. The height appears to be 2.5 feet. That gives us 1.97 cubic feet.

    And that's as far as I can go. I can't tell the difference between the newfangled nickels and the quarters, and heaven help me if silver dollars get thrown into the mix. There's now way I can make a volumetric estimate of the value per cubic inch.

    So, maybe $500.

    Did I win?

    If what the op says is accurate $500 is way low.

    I say enough to buy 2 Sandvik carbide boring bars on Amazon!

    After close examination I believe it has contains $1189.27. This is base on an average deposit of $119.62. Please don't ask me how I know this.

    No idea on the amount in there, but I do know that a quart powerade jug holds just over $80 in mixed coins. I hate having coins and keys in my pocket, always threw the coins in jugs.

    Ok... So here goes:
    Looks like the jar is 1' diameter, 1.5' height. So the volume of the jar is pi*r^2*1.5, or 1.17 cu ft, or 8 gallons. 4 quarts in a gallon, so 64 qts.

    64*80=$5120

    Few years? holy moly grease. That is 1859 dollars and 45 cents.

    I have collected my loose change over the last 5 years in a car cigarette tray, maybe 15 coins total in last 5 years
    Not a big fan of cash payments.

    Now if there would be a jar for Ebay receipts that would be different
