What is the value of each type of coin in the jar?
penny= 1 cent
nickel= 5 cents
dime= 10 cents
quarter= 25 cents
loonie= 1 dollar
twoonie= 2 dollars
How many more coins would it take to fill up the jar?
The jar is about three-quarters full. So if you add a quarter more of the number of coins that are in the jar, then the jar would probably be full.
If the jar was filled with Canadian money, would you need more coins?
No, because unlike US dollars, Canadian money has more coins. So for example, instead of having four US quarters, we can just put one Canadian loonie.
