Throw me a lot of pound coins and I'll do the experiment. I'm not sure of the drag for a coin.
I admit it's a matter of degree but 'anvil' implies a similar weight of steel to the weight of the jumper and a small increase in volume (anvils tend to be compact - see loony tunes!). In that case, the outcome is fairly predictable.
Or an anvil of change? (Say it)
(anvils tend to be compact - see loony tunes!)
Agreed, but the possibility of someone walking around with an anvil in their pocket struck me as rather remote and I therefore assumed we might be talking about something rather less massive 
I disagree about both skydivers hitting the ground about the same time, the one whose pockets still contain an anvil although his drag will be increased by the bulge thereof will certainly get down first.
