I went to try this but according to this:

http://www.coinscan.com/technical/canasp.html

Our (canadian) currency changes value fairly often

Also apparently our nickel now contains

.945 Steel .035 Copper
.02 Nickel Plating

I didn't specify, but I am basing this thread on the USA nickel.

I edit my posts a lot because I can't speak English.

This measurement is officially called RipOmeters in honor of the inventor.

Please stay within the earth's atmosphere for accurate measurements. In Holland and other countries below sea level subtract one nickel. In Australia please put a negative in front of the measurement.
