Ever look at that big bucket of coins sitting somewhere in your house and think "Boy I wish I could fulfill my wildest dreams with the money from that." And then you think "Rolling all of those coins is going to be the death of me." Well now you don't have to ignore those coins but embrace them with this awesome coin sorter that takes about ten minutes to make!

Step 1: Step 1: Get your supplies together

You'll only need a few things for this project. 
- Scissors or an X-Acto Knife
-Box with lid
-thin cardboard or posterboard
-coins to sort
It seems appropriate on so many different levels that separating loose change is being done in a box emblazoned with the name of a member of the Rothschild banking dynasty. <br> <br>It's a practical tool, social commentary and parable all rolled up in one. <br> <br>(I imagine the lightweight dividers might be a bit flimsy for larger fistfuls of change. Perhaps some thin plywood or balsa with holes drilled and then glued into place would do the trick there.)
This is neat! You could use that extra space for the dollar coins or the 50 cent pieces! You don't see them as often anymore, but they do pop up now and then :) <br /> <br />It is nice to have coins organized. I hate digging through my coin jar trying to find the quarters :)
After building this I noticed you don't need 4 dividers, you only need 3 (Nickels, pennies and dimes). The quarter divider is redundant because the quarters won't fit through the nickel divider anyway. You're just going to be left with an empty space. <br> <br>I guess the empty space could be useful for pouring in new coins if you're going to keep them inside the box. But if you do this eventually the cardboard will snap from the weight of all the coins in the box.
