On How Much Money You Need To Realistically Recreate The Scrooge McDuck 'Gold Coin Swim'

@Jeff Gordon@twitter Late to the party here, but I wanted to share my admiration. However, your last step, figuring out that it could not be US currency, is a bit off. You applied the volume value of gold bullion to the volume value of a mix of coinage. A mixture of pennies, nickels, dimes, quarters, half-dollars, and dollar coins would certainly take up more volume than the equivalent value in bullion. And we know that at least one of the coins in the vault is a dime. (See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Number_One_Dime#Number_one_dime)
