"A friend recommended me Leftover Currency. I love how they buy all sorts of coins that the banks won't take!"

We've all got old currency hidden away in that drawer…

You know the drawer we mean, the one that contains batteries and old keys.

If you're like most of us, it's probably just sitting there not getting used, right?

It's time to turn your old currency into real cash...and do it soon, before your old Spanish pesetas from that holiday you took in 1993 become totally unexchangeable.

Yes. The risk of your shipment getting lost in the mail or being tampered with is very small: Less than 0.5%, based on Royal Mail statistics. Royal Mail has an excellent delivery record. If you follow a few simple guidelines, the risk of anything bad happening to your letter or parcel is very, very small. We have listed some helpful tips & tricks about how to send money in the post.

If you are sending currency worth over £20, we recommend that you use a recorded delivery service, like Royal Mail Signed For®, TNT Express® or USPS Tracking®. It will enable you to track your shipment and it will provide you with a proof of delivery.

We don’t charge any fees or commission. You will receive payout based on our exchange rates shown here.

Our overheads and margins are covered by the so-called spread between the mid-market exchange rate and our buy exchange rate. This is the same business model used by every bureau de change.

For currency types that are more difficult to exchange, for example foreign coins, the spread between the mid-market exchange rate and our buy exchange rate is typically higher than for types of currency that are more easy to exchange. Still, our buy exchange rates are the best rates for foreign coins and obsolete notes on the Internet. We monitor this daily. In the unlikely event of finding a better buy exchange rate for foreign coins or obsolete banknotes elsewhere, please let us know.

We don’t charge fees, but some of the third party payment institutions we work with may charge you a fee:

  • PayPal charges a fee of £0.20 plus 3.40% of the amount received. If you live outside the UK, the PayPal fees for international payments apply.
  • For international bank transfers: We don’t charge a fee, but sometimes your bank may charge you a fee to receive an international payment. This seems to be the case with many Canadian banks. Ask your bank if you’re unsure. There is no fee for customers living in the United Kingdom or Single European Payment Area (SEPA).

The following costs are paid by ourselves so you’re not charged for them:

  • Payment by cheque: We pay the postage. There is no fee for you.
  • International bank transfer: We pay the transfer fee. There is no fee for you.

There are no hidden fees. We do not charge any fees or commission.

Most certainly yes. Since 2012 we have helped over 50,000 customers in the UK and worldwide to exchange their leftover currency. We are rated 'Excellent' with over 4,000 five-star reviews on TrustPilot, and we were featured on Martin Lewis' MoneySavingExpert and Fox News. In addition to the general public, we work with well-known charities such as Unicef, public sector clients and corporate customers such as the British Museum and Heathrow Airport.
