Solution #79: Boxed In

Only one. Take it from the box labeled "Dime and Nickel." Since you know all three boxes are mislabeled, the box contains either two nickels or two dimes. Put the correct label on that box after inspecting one of the coins from the box. Then simply switch the two remaining labels.
