My guess was going to be $676. I’ll forfeit the prize to @bebe80 unless the answer is exactly that.
Do we need to go down to the cents
I’m impressed no one has guessed an insane number like $3,000…
There’s a hint… It’s not more than $3000!!
Even if every single coin in that container was a quarter, it would be nowhere near $3000!
I didn’t say it was a good hint!
My guess is $538.
(I did a little analysis to help me out and all I will say is that everyone has made plausible guesses so far.)
Before I read any responses or did any analysis, the first number that popped into my head was like $76.
Haha. Two minutes of analysis significantly helped me too.
I’m guessing $572.
Feel free to DM or tell me your analytic details!! I’d love to hear how you came to the number!
FYI - I do have a tally of the exact number of rolls of each denomination. I know the ratio of which coin has the most vs. least. IMHO - It’s pretty fascinating to see what I collected / found most often.
I will be posting that tally with the solution on Monday!
I was also surprised at the number of $0.50 pieces and Dollar Coins in there. I don’t remember putting that many in there. I knew I had “buried treasures” in there to rediscover one day. It was fun! I even found a $2 bill I’d forgotten about!!
I did want to give some details about the container since you couldn’t see or touch it. That’s why I put in the measurements
For me the biggest thing to know was the weight!! I have picked up the jar over the years for fun, but moving it to the scale was precarious. 55lbs. of metal would have crushed a toe!!
I am kind of surprised the animal cracker container didn’t break open with that amount of weight!
Maybe you meant $576 or $676 and just lopped off the first digit
If you’d said all this first I’d have guessed more!
For the shake of transparency -
There really was only a couple half dollars and about $10 in gold $1 coins. So it wouldn’t throw off your guess too much!
I’m so bad at keeping secrets!! It’s going to be sooooo hard waiting a week to tell y’all the answer!!!
I am going to apply some non-sensical maths to throw in a guess.
I am thinking it is $476.07. So my guess is $476.
I’m on the edge of my seat waiting for more HHN announcements!!
We have one of those office water bottles that we collect coins in. Back in the early days of Disney travel my boys and I would sit on the floor in my bedroom counting and rolling the coins before our trips. I loved doing that!
I’m going to guess $327
I’m going to have to find your trip reports and read them.
