According to my math professor a dollar's worth in nickels weighs more than the equivalent in quarters or dimes for two reasons. First the size and composition makes the nickel slightly heavier than the other coins. Second, it takes 20 nickels to make a dollar, while it only takes 10 dimes or 4 quarters.
