Thanks, spruett001 and CoinHunter4!

I enjoyed doing it so much yesterday, that I did it again today.

I patiently waited for about a 15 minute dump at the local Walmart. There were several coins in there - a few dimes, nickels, and cents, along with 1 quarter and a Mexican coin - less than $1 total. Well, one of the dimes was a 1964-D!


This marks my 10th silver dime found in a Coinstar this year!
CRH Nickeloholic. 1,300,000 nickels searched in five years! Already have found THREE complete Jefferson sets!

Thanks CoinHunter4, Oldfordman, and jbuck!

My two best Coinstar find months historically seem to usually be November and December. People turning in their change to buy Christmas presents... not expecting anything like my all-time find from four years ago, but you never ever know!

Awesome finds everyone! I like checking these machines around Christmas time also; my best find was a Wheat cent that I found a couple of years ago in a Coin star machine at a Pick N' Save.

I was surprised to find something in the reject tray so soon after my last visit...

An utterly grotty and mauled 2010 20p, a dirty 2000 Spanish 2 eurocents and a practically mint state 2017 5p!

My local grocery store replaced their Coinstar about a year and a half ago with a generic Cummins coin counter that looks like the kind you see in banks. The unfortunate part of this is, it does not appear to reject silver coins, because I have yet to find one in the reject bin. The good news is, it has a magnet under the slot you dump the coins into which attracts foreign coins, and even if nothing is in the reject bin, I usually find a foreign coin or two stuck to the magnet that most people don't bother to pry free.

Today was the first day in forever where I managed to find a significant pile of change in the reject bin, and if anything makes me feel like a kid on Christmas morning again, it's grabbing a bunch of change out of the reject bin. Since it's the Christmas season part of me wants to visit grocery stores that still have Coinstar machines since I've had the best finds around this time of the year. Especially the grocery stores that have their machines off the beaten path, that way they aren't as likely to be constantly picked clean by employees and other customers.

-56 cents in ordinary change
-West Windsor parking authority coin
-4 Indian coins that appear to total 6 rupees
-Australian 10 cent coin
-Colombian 200 pesos coin
-5 cent coin from the Phillipines
-Best of all, a 1939 penny!

I have no clue how many different people contributed those foreign coins, as several were stuck to the magnet and could've been there for multiple machine uses.
