He has six more 50c coins than 20c coins

And all the money is $24 (2400c).

The extra six more 50c coins translates to an extra $3.

Remove the six coins and you have an equal number of 50c and 20c coins which has a total value of $21.

Pretend that one 50c coin and one 20c coin is now one ‘70c’ coin (two coins become one).

Since the total value of all the ‘70c’ coins is $21 (2100c), there must have been 2100/70 = 30 of such ‘70c’ coins.

This means that the $21 consists of 30 of the 50c coins and 30 of the 20c coins. At the start there were 36 of the 50c coins and 30 of the 20c coins.
