    Answer:
    0.08lb or 1.28oz
    Step-by-step explanation:
    From the original weight of coins(1.92lb) if you remove 0.56lb, then the remaining gold is 1.92-0.56 = 1.36lb
    Since there are 17 coins, then each coin weighs 1.36lb/17 = 0.08lb
    Since there are 16oz to a pound, this would work out to 0.08 x 16 = 1.28 oz
