Less than 5kg? Donate it to Charity…

As a commercial processor of coins and notes the minimum weight of currency we accept for payment is 5kg. However, if you have less than 5kg and would like to donate your currency to charity then we will accept it on the basis that this will be donated (by us) directly to your chosen charity. Once converted and donated to the charity of your choice the official donation reference number will be emailed to you.

(If you only have notes for exchange the 5kg limit does not apply and they should be posted via Royal Mail signed for or recorded delivery.)

For advice on sending under 5kg please call us on 0161 635 0000

If you have less than 5Kg and would like to donate it to charity above then we offer a low cost way to send your currency via Hermes www.myhermes.co.uk

Please remember to select your chosen charity on the Cash4Coins Currency Form

What’s your postal address?

You’ll find our postal address on our currency form and address label, both of which must be included in your package if you send coins to us in the mail.

If you do not have access to a printer, you should write the address exactly as shown below on the outside of your package, and ensure that your full contact information is contained inside. For obvious security reasons, do not write Cash 4 Coins anywhere on your parcel. Please also write your email address below our address on the front of your package so that we can notify you when we receive it.

How to pack your foreign coins

Watch our short video to show you how to pack your coins and notes.

Find a strong carrier bag that has no holes, and place your coins inside. Secure all the way around with plenty of parcel tape. Now place inside another carrier bag and apply tape all the way around. Place your double-bagged coins in a strong cardboard box, and pack all the way around with scrap paper or any packaging material that stops your coins from moving around in transit. Ensure that your box is secured with lots of tape. You’d be amazed how easily coins can escape once they’re in transit, so don’t be afraid to be extra-thorough.

Once your coins are packed, contact us and let us know the approximate size of your parcel. We’ll email you a pre-paid courier label which you simply print and stick to the outside of your parcel ready for collection.

If you have any questions then contact us – we’re here to help.

I have more than 50kg of coins. What should I do?

For very large collections of 50kg or more, we will send a member of staff to collect your coins in person, and we’ll also provide the packing materials. Get in touch to arrange a collection.

Packing advice: Read Me!

If you’re using boxes from copier paper, be warned that they’re not usually strong enough to hold more than 12kg each. Please do not exceed the maximum weight of 26kg for any parcel, and as an easy guide, if you can’t easily pick it up, neither can we! If you don’t have a box that’s strong enough for your coins, simply contact us and we’ll send you one suitable for over 12kg. A small charge of £2.75 to cover postage will be deducted from the final coin value for this service.

What about insurance?

We understand the importance of insurance for your peace of mind. Any package we collect is automatically covered up to a maximum value of £100 if the currency is lost in transit. This only applies to collections we have arranged, where collection has been confirmed by the courier. We are unable to cover loss due to inadequate packaging, so if in doubt, use more tape!

If you need to insure your parcel for a higher amount, simply get in touch, and we will arrange the right amount of cover.

When we receive your coin collection, it is weighed, counted and photographed in secure conditions. If you’d like to find out more about how we protect your coins, contact us today.

Which foreign coins can I send?

We accept any currency from any corner of the globe, including notes! We even change old UK, Irish and pre-euro European coins.

All foreign coins and notes
All pre-Euro coins
All pre-Euro banknotes
Old British coins
Old Irish coins
All pre-decimal coins
Commemorative coins
Damaged and garbled coins
Bulk mixed foreign coins

 

Are there any coins you don’t accept?

No. But some old coins can only be exchanged for a nominal or scrap value – these include some pre-euro European coins. However, it depends on the currency and the denomination, so we check every coin and note individually to ensure you get the best return on your collection.

We can only offer scrap or nominal value on pre-euro coins from the following countries:

• France

• Greece

• Netherlands

• Italy

• Luxembourg

• Portugal

• Belgium

• Cyprus

We can exchange all Spanish bank notes, but only the most recently-issued Spanish Peseta coins. Earlier coins will be exchanged at scrap value only.

How much will I get for my coins?

We guarantee to offer the best exchange rate in the UK for any coin at any given time, with 100% customer satisfaction also guaranteed or we’ll return your coins straight away at our own expense.

When your coins have been received, they’re taken to our counting office for processing, prior to an offer being made. This can take anywhere from 3 – 21 days depending on the quantity of coin packages we receive at the time.

Your offer will itemise any coin that can’t be exchanged, and a generous offer will be made on collectible coins based on their expected sale value.

Prompt payments are made via bank transfer (UK only).  Worldwide by Paypal only or bank transfer by prior agreement.
