I want to buy a $1.00 newspaper. I have just enough pennies $0.01, nickels $0.05, dimes $0.10, and quarters $0.25 to buy the newspaper in every possible exact-change combination of those coins.

How many coins do I have?

The question is not clear.
If I want to make any combination possible using pennies, nickels, dimes and quarters I would need:
100 pennies
20 nickels
10 dimes
4 quarters
= 134 coins.
But I do not think that is what you mean.

You want to send a valuable object to a friend. You have a box which is more than large enough to contain the object. You have several locks with keys. The box has a locking ring which is more than large enough to have a lock attached. But your friend does not have the key to any lock that you have. Note that you cannot send a key in an unlocked box, since it might be copied.
How is this done?
