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

Almost everybody on this island has a POSB/DBS account :)
In the last 2 years I had to transfer funds to different kinds of people and not a single person said they didnt have a POSB/DBS account.

Nope - it is not free. It is 0.75c per coin

In that case, refer to my earlier post regarding the Singapore Mint. It's Free where/when noted. :wink:

Apparently only coins deposited to kids junior saver accounts will have the fees waived provided you follow proper procedures. Not good if you are single or a SINK or DINK.

I've been bagging my coins in ziplock bags , each bag containing $10 worth of coins.

I found staff at the MRT don't mind accepting coin bags when I want to recharge my ezylink card.... it just takes a little longer waiting until they count it all.
