I live by the border, and went to 3 different American banks.
They gave me any coins that I wanted, from dollar coins to half dollars. (No large dollars)
I did get a little hassle when I came across the border, but I don't think that it had anything to do with the coins.
The only thing he did was look at them, didn't say a word about them.(did not care)

Be HONEST with them, even if you don't think it's a big deal bringing them across.
I didn't think it was a big deal, it is just changing money for money.

If you want to get rid of coins without a hassle, go to a casino. They love to see people bring in coins because they have to buy theirs and believe it or not, they pay more than the value of the coins. (I worked in a casino bank for a while).

Pay more than the value of the coins ? highly doubt that. Most casinos are completely coinless these days.

Entering the US is fine, exiting the US with quantities of certain denominations could be problematic due to the export limits set by current cent and nickel melt ban.


Quote:
Specifically, the new regulations prohibit, with certain exceptions, the melting or treatment of all one-cent and 5-cent coins. The regulations also prohibit the unlicensed exportation of these coins, except that travelers may take up to $5 in these coins out of the country, and individuals may ship up to $100 in these coins out of the country in any one shipment for legitimate coinage and numismatic purposes. In all essential respects, these regulations are patterned after the Department of the Treasury's regulations prohibiting the exportation, melting, or treatment of silver coins between 1967 and 1969, and the regulations prohibiting the exportation, melting, or treatment of one-cent coins between 1974 and 1978.

The new regulations authorize a fine of not more than $10,000, or imprisonment of not more than five years, or both, against a person who knowingly violates the regulations. In addition, by law, any coins exported, melted, or treated in violation of the regulation shall be forfeited to the United States Government.

Nope, the only one on the west coast is San Francisco but Fed banks are not usable by the general public anyway.
