"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.

Not long! We aim to get you paid within 5 working days or less, starting from the day of receipt.

It takes us 1-3 days to process your currency. Processing involves opening the post, counting, checking security features, sorting, sending the confirmation email, storage and data entry. We do this in batches. We start a new batch every second working day.

Next we get you paid. The time for a payment to come through depends on the selected payment method:

  • Payments by PayPal come through instantly.
  • UK Bank Transfers take 1 working day to come through.
  • International bank transfers take 1-4 working days to come through. 
  • Cheque payments for £10 and more are sent by First Class mail. They arrive in 1 working day. 
  • Cheque payments for less than £10 are sent by Second Class mail. They arrive in 2-3 working days. 

The majority of our customers receive payment within 5 working days. Should there be a delay for whatever reason, we will contact you.
