For those of a European inclination, the 10c weighs 4g... Takes about 15 (60g) to press a key on my trusty Model F.

I don't advise stacking coins. If you're making some meal, do you weigh the ingredients by putting coins on the other hand of a scale? Medieval at best.
When you're stacking coins, you are wildly inaccurate and guaranteed to pick heaps of coins from your keyboard at once. I advise this method. All you need is a plastic cap, from a spray or whatever, roughly the diameter of a keycap, put it on a keycap, fill it with crap (anything small) untill the key switches, then put the crap on a scale.
No coins all over your keyboard, much more precise, and you won't be handling coins which are researched to be dirtier than toilet seats.

I get my coins from the St. Francis Hotel in San Francisco.

They wash them and present the change using white gloves.

Mechanical's activation numbers are all listed here.

Rubber domes seem to fall generally in the 50-70g range with scissor switches being generally higher. Cut up a wine cork to ensure you aren't hitting the other keys and using epoxy glue for a 50g stack makes things a lot easier.

80g Toshiba convertible tablet scissor switch


Or if you have a "medical condition" this 50g weight can be found in certain shops.

My HP 210HD Netbook is 65g on the "Island" style scissor switches


And Keytronics lies about their rubber dome numbers. Bad Keytronics.

Some people like to drone on about the differences in Model M Buckling Spring switches.

These people are certifiable.

Those geekhack wikis are unreabable. More like ego documents of people who cut & paste other people's texts, and monopolizing them. Reminds me of Manyak. His cut & pasting wasn't a problem on geekhack until it turned out it got a lot of hits. And then you know what it is really about when a guy mostly posts his own pictures, each with a huge signature in it, and only links to his own wikis cut & pasted from the originals. It's like reading a book about stories the author picked up elsewhere where on each page the author's name is plastered over it in big font five times.
