6,080 quarters rounded up one silver Washington (1957), six Canadians, one Philippines 50¢ and one French 10 Centimes (1855W). The French coin is the 4th oldest coin I've found! It is slightly bigger than a quarter and this one is extremely worn. You can definitely see the design/year if you hold it at the right angle, but it is going to be very difficult to take a picture of this one. Still extremely cool! Here's a picture of the same coin in much better condition than mine. Mine is from 1855 and has a W mint mark on the back meaning it was minted in Lille. 9,837,000 were minted.

350 dimes turned up one US penny.

440 nickels got me one Canadian and one US penny.
