Foreign Coin School Collections

Posted on: August 2nd, 2012 by Ian Stormnet

Foreign coin school collections – the easy fundraising choice

All schools need to raise well needed extra funds for deserving school projects. A great way to do this is to organise foreign coin school collections, it’s simple to do and a very effective method of raising money for your school. Many of our clients have regular school collections of foreign coins, we then buy the foreign coins and convert them into Sterling and pay the school via cheque or BACS payment directly into their bank account.

If you have over 5kg of coins we’ll even collect them for FREE!

As you will know many of the parents and friends of your school will have holidays or trips abroad and consequently they will have come home with spare foreign coins that they have not been able to exchange back in to Sterling. Most of the time this money is put in the ‘change jar’ or a drawer, never to be seen or used again! This is a great opportunity for your school to take advantage of this fact and put the unwanted foreign coins to good use at your school.

We’re trusted by lots of schools like yours to help raise valuable funds, here’s some recent comments:

“Cash 4 Coins is an excellent service that allows schools to easily convert old coins into valuable cash! Their service is quick and efficient and hassle-free. This is a top class service.”

Matthew – Sheringham Woodfields School, Norfolk.

“Cash 4 coins was an excellent fundraiser for us. It involved minimal work on the school’s part and we raised £400 to put towards a swing in our playground. Parents also found it a useful way to get rid of unwanted coins!”

Gemma Bicocchi (Class Teacher) – Kingswells Primary School, Aberdeen.
