Counting Coins Using Touch Points

Touch Points A touch point is a “dot” or “dots” on a coin
Each touch point is worth 5 cents Each type of coin has a different number of touch points depending on how much that coin is worth We always count by 5’s when we are using touch points on the coins

Nickel A nickel is worth 5¢ We say: “5¢” A nickel has 1 touch point 5
 This is a nickel We say: “5¢” A nickel has 1 touch point

Dime A dime is worth 10¢ We say: “5¢, 10¢” A dime has 2 touch points 5
 This is a dime 5 10 We say: “5¢, 10¢” A dime has 2 touch points
