Does anyone know of a coin machine in town where you drop in a handful of coins, it counts them, then gives you cash back?

Bank of Montreal in Langford for sure, I've used it and got over $200.

I just roll my own. Coins that is. That way I don't have to give the countint machine any money for counting my coins.

whatever the fee is, I'm ok with it. Rolling up 4900 coins is not worth it

I've heard the casino cashiers at View Royal will gladly take your coins.

Has anyone tried it?

You can take your coins to CHEK, and donate them the the Jeneece Edroff Society.

Do you think the casino would process 1/4 wine barrel of mostly small change?

I thought someone mentioned a credit union in town had one. A quick Google search produced one in Burnaby but not here.

Google search says BMO WESTSHORE, 101 735 GOLDSTREAM AVE, VICTORIA, BC, V9B2X4 - 250 389-2485 has one

http://dan.matan.ca/...g-Machines-Maps

Confirmed from the BMO's site..(Missed some one posting earlier in the thread BMO had one ) Convoluted way to find it , You have to click on find coin counter locations, then you have to go to advanced search and select "Coin Counter"..

Looks like there may be a poker chip in there as well.
Life's a journey......so roll down the window and enjoy the breeze.

Good eye there LJ, I think there is more than one. I am still ticked off that our treasury is giving up on the penny. Now I will never fill that wine barrel up.

Here is a pic of the machine at BMO on Goldstream. The sign says over $250 and the charge 8%. I am assuming under that is free. I think you take a chit to the teller.

Your assumptions would be correct - the coin counter's just meant as a way to draw people into the branch, even non-BMO customers.

That's perfect.

When I was in London there was a bank that had the same - it was free as a draw to get people into the bank.

I was in the TDCanada Trust downtown the other day and the teller told me they are getting a coin-counting machine next month. She didn't have any more details than that.

Not that people will motor out to Sooke for the sake of a coin machine, but I noticed that Village Foods has one. Ka-ching.
