These free coin counting worksheets are a great way for kids to practice your math skills – and of course start learning how to quickly and easily sort and count coins!

Why Use Coin Counting Worksheets?

When I first designed these worksheets, I wanted to come up with a way that my youngest daughter could help me sort through and count up a gigantic jar of loose change.

We have so much fun doing things like coin roll hunting and metal detecting as a family with kids so it always seems I have a pretty big pile of coins to sort through!

My daughter had never rolled coins before, and while she could count the coins, she was quickly getting frustrated because she would sometimes lose her place and end up having to count the whole roll all over again.

Being the inventive mama that I am, I decided to make these worksheets to help her and I figured if she liked them there would surely be other kids who would enjoy them too!

I could see these being a great way to keep toddlers and preschoolers entertained on the days the kids are bored and need an important job to do!

Beyond just using them to learn how to roll coins, there are so many other ways these worksheets could be used! You could use them for skip-counting, multiplication tables practice, and so much more!
