An actual Coinstar machine at Safeway @ Tillicum Mall, and looks like the rest have them too .... Bad news is it's 12 Cents on the dollar... https://www.coinstar.../SearchAddress/

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.

Charges 8% for the public, free for those with special accounts.

Finally got a chance to use it. Took in a sandwich bag full of coins and watched the count rise to app $25! There were three English coins in the pile somehow and those were dumped in the reject dish on the side of the machine. It was fun and I think my kids will enjoy trying it too.

Not sure why it was so fun but a couple waiting in the lobby nearby were fascinated and having fun watching the count of my coins.
