it varies but somewhere in the 0.8-0.9 range is pretty common. I do not like using ml for a volume when describing a solid, so I mean 0.8-0.9 g/cm^3. 1 ml is 1 cm^3 so the same values apply. also, 1 g/cm^3 is the same as 1 tonne/m^3 (and 1 tonne =1000 kg)

From the Engineering Toolbox:

Typical Density of Coal

1100 - 1800 (kg/m3)

Typical Bulk Density of Coal

Anthracite Coal : 50 - 58 (lb/ft3), 800 - 929 (kg/m3)

Bituminous Coal : 42 - 57 (lb/ft3), 673 - 913 (kg/m3)

Lignite Coal : 40 - 54 (lb/ft3), 641 - 865 (kg/m3)
