Tips for Counting Coins and Dollars - Almost every kid loves to collect coins and heap them up in a piggy bank. But most kids find it difficult to count their collected treasure. Here we have discussed a few tips that will help you in counting your collection of coins. Empty your piggy bank and gather all your collected coins. Separate the collected coins depending on their type. Create separate piles of each type of coin. Coins worth a particular amount should be separated and grouped together. Once you have separated them in different piles, count each of the pile separately. Start working with one pile at a time, Place one pile of coins in front of you and put other piles aside. For example, if you are working with dimes, place that specific pile in front of you and place others aside. Count one coin at a time. Stack the coins in a pile of 10 coins. Stack of 10 coins works ideally and separate the rest. Place the remaining coins in other stacks. Once you have piled the coins in a stack of 10, multiply the number of piles with 10. Take the stacks of that particular coin and multiply it with 10. You will get to know how many coins you have of that particular type.
