I think the following will you the maximum numbers of coins:

 

1 - 13 quarters  x  0.25 = $3.25

$5.00  -  $ 3.25 = $1.75 left 

 

2 - 12 dimes  x  0.10 = $1.20

$1.75  -  $1.20 =$ 0.55 left

 

3 - 11 nickels x  0.05 =$ 0.55

$0.55 - $0.55 = 0 left.

 

4 - So, you can have a maximum of: 13 quarters  +  12 dimes  +  11 nickels = $5
