If left alone, raccoons will not cause any harm. Trapping and removing them will do nothing for long-term control, as the newly vacant niche will quickly be filled by raccoons from surrounding areas. Relocating raccoons—even to wild or wooded areas—is illegal in many places and will likely result in their death.
In nearly all cases, a raccoon that has gotten too familiar with a human home— hanging out on the deck or moving into the attic, for example— will leave after after the home owners use humane harassment techniques to scare them away.
Because raccoons are a rabies vector, they cannot be trapped and relocated under any circumstances. All trapped raccoons must be euthanized or released on the property where they were captured.
Raccoon Habitat Raccoons are extremely adaptable. They are often found in suburban and urban areas, making their homes in man-made structures like attics, sewers, barns and sheds. In urban areas, raccoons tend to stay closer to their dens with a range of only about 1 mile, depending on their age and sex.
If you've caught the animal in a cage trap and want to euthanize it, a CO2 chamber is best. Since you probably don't own one, shoot it. Please do not drown the animal - that's a cruel redneck move. It's usually easier to trap a raccoon in a cage than outright kill it.

To max out the number of pennies, melt them. That way if you can fit 18.927 / 0.00036 or 52,575 pennies ($525.75) in a 5 gallon bucket.
I brought a few quarts of pennies to the bank and they average about $11.00-$12.00 filled to the neck line. Five gallons is 20 quarts and allowing for less headspace than 20 jars would give my ballpark estimate is $250.00.
