Gimme Some Change

Jean gave Karyna a bag of coins containing only nickels (\(5\) cent coins) and dimes (\(10\) cent coins). The total value of all the coins in the bag was \(\$11\) and there were \(16\) more nickels than dimes in the bag.

How many coins in total were in the bag?

Note: In Canada, \(100\) cents is equal to \(\$1\).
