So basically I am trying to find some older coins from coin rolls, when I mean old I mean coins past 1964, such as wheat pennies, silver quarters, dimes, and nickels, basically anything older than 1964. Also I'm looking for old old coins such as Indian heads, and stuff like that. This is my first time going to the bank for coins so I want you guys to help me out and figure out what I should get!
Thanks so much

You will not be able to get wheaties,silvers and pre 64 coins from the bank, you might once in a while find a wheatie here and there but your source to get these type coins would be either your local coin shop,or online such as eBay.
You can get rolls from the bank in any denomination and they will be varied dates and mintmarks.

Well not to sound to harsh but ; I think the bank your looking for is e-bay . Only Cents and Nickels will get you a few coins before 1964 from the Bank . In my opinion don't bother with Dimes ,Quarters ,and Halves from the bank unless you have the resources to pick up boxes at a time and have free time to search all those coins .
Other members will give you a different opinion .

I've heard that plenty of people managed to get old coins from rolls at the bank such as a 1908 dime.

You want figures? OK here's some from my experience having got rolls/boxes from the bank(s) over the past four years.

560 Halves: 0-pre1965, 0-1965to70, no proofs or quality coins

1,260 Quarters: 0-pre1965, couldn't even put a nice State or Natl Park set together.

4 boxes Dimes: 1- Barber2-Mercs, 1-Roosie, 2-proofs

82,670 nickels: 3 Buffalos, 1-1938D, 1-1939S, 31 Silver nickels, 6 impaired proofs, 2-Black Beauties.

Over 1 Million Cents searched. Consistent average of 5-9 Wheat cents found, NO key or semi-key dates and very few non-common date (mostly 1940's P mint, 1950's D mint) I did find an 1886 Ty2 IH in a customer dump roll.


All Notable coins were found BEFORE 2016, after then has been wheat cents and war nickels is all.

CRHing is really only for the error and variety coins anymore. Unless you get boxes of halves directly from your bank delivered from a Fed "Re-distribution" center, you will not be getting much silver. The ONLY time tellers may have silver is a customer dump. Sweet-talk 'em!

As a final note: I have tossed more Dateless Buffalo and Liberty nickels and even a few Indian Head cents in my bank dumps than I have ever found!

My experience is somewhat similar to Crazyb's (above). Without knowing more about your approach to collecting and roll searching, I'd suggest you just pick up whatever rolls you can get at a bank or two and go through them to get a feel for what's possible and adjust your hunting from that. Where you're at geographically can make a difference--results from searching bank and customer rolls in the metro Los Angeles area over several years are likely to be a little different than searching rolls from Palisade, Nebraska over the same period of time.

Volume is a key factor--if you can afford to search dozens of boxes of all coin types weekly, you're more likely to find something that interests you than searching four or five rolls a month. I increased my roll searching volume significantly 10 years ago and still haven't uncovered anything magnificent other than four common Indian Head cents and a late 1930s coin from the Soviet Union. Have come across some BU 1950s wheat cents and few steelies; very little silver. I did find a DDO Bicentennial quarter in a customer roll a few years ago--after going through 100s and 100s of quarter rolls.

Wish you luck!

Why not buy a few rolls of everything? I've been in the hobby since 1977, and from 2009 - 2014 I've found thousands of silver coins from bank rolls, including silvers from the 1800's. I wasn't big on searching cents, but did average 12 wheats per box. Keep in mind that the key to success is to search large volumes of coin. Not $50 here, $20 there, but in searching thousands of dollars per bank visits, if possible. That's what I did, using the same bank roll over and over. I spent maybe 3-4 hours per week searching those amounts, and dumping what was left. Good luck.

@T-BOP, I do realize that according to polls, a very large majority of Americans don't have an extra $500 in funds to cover an emergency expense. Try and save up till you do. Thats why I wrote "if possible". What's nice about roll hunting is that you are spending money, but getting most all of it back when you dump the rejects. As far as time, like I mentioned, it shouldn't take more than a few hours a week to search and dump a couple thousand in coin. Depending upon a collector's goals, one should able to search a grand in dimes in a hour or two, once you get good at it.

While I've found very little silver while roll hunting--due in part to the region I live in (a few high-volume silver searchers in the area)--I've had decent luck getting silver from teller trays. When I'm transacting business with the teller I always eyeball the change tray. Over the years I've picked up many silver halves that way--some quarters too. I have noticed that some branches are beginning to remove trays from sight--some have removed them outright.

As others are saying, volume is key if you want high(er)-return results.

I've mentioned this before, but another good way to find silver and older coins is by working a retail till. My 17 year old son, at his first job at Taco Bell in six months time, has found 6 silver dimes, 2 Buffalo nickels and about 20 wheats, a couple at least 100 yo. He has absolutely zero interest but knows his dad does.

Maybe he's an exterminator....


As to area, yes indeed but do realize that all coins are redistributed according to Fed Bank Regions so yes the chance of getting the same fair over again is quite slight. I had a running test for about 2 1/2 years where every box of nickels and cents I would mark at least 100-150 coins with a marker to see if I got any back again. I started in 2013 and to this day have found only two markers, and that was actually two weeks later from a bank that wrapped it's own rolls when it ran out of Fed Boxes, so a Customer wrap of sorts. Never have I found any others of the possible thousands circulating in Central Missouri and KC/STL region.

I would suggest getting a bank box of U.S. Pennies (that's what it says on the box), since it's the cheapest way to get good finds for face value, if you get lucky. It will cost 25 dollars to get one box. I have had great luck with most of the boxes, and have found Wheat Cents, Canadian Cents, and even sometimes Foreign coins as well.
