This fee is 0.75 CENTS per piece (dbs coin deposit machine) so with 1 dollar coin it is 0.75%

My father in law is a compulsive hoarder of coins too. He until recently had something like $3k of dollar coins stacked up behind the fanlight (window) above the front door of their home.

Don't ask me why! :???:

Now, should anyone else go to the trouble of taking and counting those free of charge? Indulging this curious habit? No, I don't think so.

Oh and he hoards $2 and $50 notes too (what is it that age does lol), and before you take those to the bank, they all have to be the right way up and facing the right way before they will count them.

Not denying anything of the above to SMS but you didn't want banks as they charge money. The mint also charges money so it simply looks like you don't know what do you want. On top of this the difference between the mint and the bank would be around $S2 if you are going to exchange 1000 (doubtful). Your efforts seem a bit pathetic.

x9200,

You didn't read my link carefully. Look at the bottom of the url page for the locations/dates of FREE coin exchanges. :wink:

I heard if you are a POSB/DBS account holder and are above a certain age (Senior Citizen), you can have the coins deposited into your account Free on certain days of the week. Is this true?

Absolutely not meaningless - just one you don't like or couldn't comprehend. Same was for the other responses in this thread. Now go, engage somewhere else more people to save 25c (and spend probably few dollars on transportation).

If you have an account there it's free as long as you are depositing it to your account:
