Places with Coin Counters

Retail stores (primarily grocery) and banks are the two most common places to find coin counters. At the stores and banks listed below, you can bring loose change, put it in the coin-counting machine, and receive a payout in exchange for your coins.

Retail Stores

Coinstar, which has locations in a variety of grocery stores and other retail stores, provides a convenient option to convert your coins into paper money. However, it does come with fees of up to 11.9%.

To bypass the fee, opt for a gift card payout rather than cash. Coinstar offers gift cards from many well-known companies, such as Amazon, The Home Depot, and Sears. You can also donate your Coinstar deposits to several organizations, such as the American Red Cross or UNICEF, and get a tax deduction. Note that options for e-gift cards and donations are not the same at all kiosks.

Other Ways to Use Your Coins

Self-Checkout

A creative option for cashing in your coins is to use the self-checkout lane at the grocery store and just pay with coins. This is a fee-free option worth considering if you can make it to the store during a time when it’s not too busy.

Sell Your Valuable Coins

Before you cash in your coins, make sure you don’t have any rare coins. Though it’s a long shot, it’s worth looking through your coins to make sure you’re not getting rid of a rare or valuable coin. Your coin may be valuable if it is:

  • A penny made prior to 1982 (meaning it’s 95% copper)
  • A nickel, dime, or quarter minted prior to 1964 (meaning it contains silver)
  • A buffalo nickel (featuring a buffalo and a Native American on either side)

If you happen upon a rare coin, a certified coin dealer can help you find out what it’s worth.

    I’ve badly wanted a way to utilize my coins without having to roll them and I’m sure not paying 11% to Coinstar – I finally hit on using my coins at Walmart at their self-check out, just pour my coins into their slot – takes a little while but works great for any purchase under $20. I’m going to get rid of my coins this way – one sizable plastic jar down, two to go – after that I will just use those machines on an on-going basis for whenever I’ve accumulated a hand full of change, no more hoarding or worries about big jars of change building up.

  • Visions FCU, which has braches in NJ and in central NY has coin counters in some of their braches (including Westwood and Englewood Cliffs NJ). However, you can only use the coin counters if you are a member.

      Hi William,

      For starters, Coinstar has installed over 20,000 coin counting machines, though some of these are in Europe and Canada. You can contact them for more information with this online contact form or by calling 800-928-2274.

    • Rebecca Turley says:

      Hi William,

      There are more than 8,900 Coinstar machines located in the U.S. All of these machines are fee-based machines, although customers can bypass the fees if they opt to collect their money on an e-gift card. Hope this helps!

  • Just went into my local Chase bank and the teller told me Chase doesn’t accept unrolled coins any longer.

    • Rebecca Turley says:

      Hi Lorin,

      You’re right — you will be limited to those Chase locations that have coin counters. Keep in mind that not all locations offer this service.

      Hi Donna,

      Since so few banks have coin counters these days, the easiest way to find a coin machine is usually with Coinstar’s location finder. You can visit this link and enter your zip code to find the nearest Coinstar kiosk in your area. If you have any trouble with this, just let me know which state you’re in and I’d be happy to take a look for you.
