Multiplying 20 nickels per dollar by \$1 million yields a total of 20 million nickels. It would also take 100 million pennies, 10 million dimes, four million quarters or two million half-dollars to equal \$1 million. To make \$1,000, it would take 20,000 nickels, 100,000 pennies, 10,000 dimes, 4,000 quarters or 2,000 half-dollars. Because one nickel has a thickness of approximately 0.077 inches, \$1 million worth of nickels would stack slightly more than 24 miles.
