If you’re having trouble telling your coins apart, one of the simplest solutions is to check out the edges. Nickels and pennies have smooth edges and quarters and dimes have rough edges. Nickels are also thicker than the other coins. Furthermore, each of these coins has a distinct sound when they are dropped onto a solid surface. With time and a little bit of patience, you can learn to distinguish these sounds. When you’re on the go, you can use a wallet that has separate compartments for each bill and coin to help you keep up with your change.
