Donate your leftover currency to Collective
Collective is a free contemporary art space that brings creative new perspectives to the city of Edinburgh
Situated in a heritage observatory, Collective develops and presents world-class exhibitions, events, workshops and discussions from ground-breaking local and international artists.
The organisation runs artist-led activities for young people, as well as the sector-leading development programme for emerging creative practitioners, Satellites.
Founded in 1984 as an artist-run initiative, Collective now runs from their home on Edinburgh’s iconic Calton Hill.
Money raised will support the charity’s work with artists and the maintenance of their incredible historic buildings.

How much of my donation goes to Collective?
We donate the complete exchange value plus 5% extra to Collective. There are no fees, neither do we subtract any commission. You will receive a confirmation email, containing the amount donate. We will share this information with Collective.
Which banknotes and coins can I donate?
You can donate any coins or notes, foreign or domestic. We will exchange whatever currency you send us and will donate the combined exchange value plus five percent extra to Collective.
We will exchange currencies listed on our exchangeable currencies page against the exchange rates shows.
All other banknotes and coins will be exchanged against their numismatic value, bullion value or scrap metal value, whichever is higher. It helps if you sort the currency before you send it. But if you are unable to sort your currency, don't worry. We will take care of the sorting and counting free of charge.
