etc. In US currency paper bills are called dollars ( $). |

We have given different names to our coins. |

1 cent
is called a Penny. 5 cent
is called a Nickel.
10 cents is called a Dime. 25 cents is called a Quarter. |

We do have 50 cent coins. But they are not commonly found. |

100 cents makes 1 dollar.
Therefore: |

2 fifty cent coins (50+50) make 1 dollar.
4 quarters (25+25+25+25) make one dollar 10 dimes make one dollar 20 nickels make one dollar and, 100 pennies make one dollar |
