How much does a thousand dollars in quarters weigh in us pounds?

$1,000 in quarters would weigh just over 50 pounds.

One quarter weighs exactly 5.67 grams.

There are 4,000 quarters in $1,000, for a total weight of 22,680 grams, which is equivalent to 50 pounds and .01 ounces.

Earlier this year in a robbery at the Roswell Laundry in Roswell, Georgia, someone stole several thousand quarters.

The total take was $950, and at least $750 of that was in quarters, that's 3,000 quarters (which would weigh close to 40 lbs!).
