Good news! We have added nine extra currencies to the list of currencies for which we exchange foreign coins. Here are the extra currencies for which you can now send in your foreign coins and get paid within 5 days of receipt:

Australian Dollar coins

It’s taken a while, but we finally figured out the logistics for the exchange of Australian dollar coins. We are glad to announce that we will henceforth accept all Australian coins for exchange. So if you have any leftover dollar or cent coins from Australia, now is a good time to exchange them for cash.

Estonian Kroon coins

The Estonian Kroon was replaced by the Euro in 2011. Should you have any obsolete Estonian Krooni coins in your drawers, you’ll be glad to learn we’ve started up the exchange for these. That way you can still get cash for your obsolete pre-euro coins from Estonia.
