I was in the US over the weekend at my first US coin show in Hamburg, NY, among other activities. I was able to pick up a number of older dates I was looking for to fill my album. I also wanted to get a bunch of rolls from the bank to look for modern dates. Unfortunately, time constraints prevented me from going to a bank on the Friday and I had to go on Saturday.

There was really only one bank in the area that was open on the Saturday. Since I wasn't a customer with that bank, they were only willing to give me one roll of nickels, dimes and quarters when I had wanted 10 of each. I found a few dates/mintmarks I needed from the nickels and quarters. The dime roll was all 2018-P's that looked uncirculated.

I ran into that one day.
A bank wouldn't change out anything because I didn't have account.

Almost any service from a U.S. bank requires that you have an account with them .

I've done this a handful of times before at other banks in other cities without any issue. That being said, I can't blame them for only wanting to deal with account holders rather than randoms like me.

the problem I encounter is when the request is over $50-$60 in change. pretty much any bank I've been to will give it to me if they aren't having a bad day or shorthanded and busy, but when you go to $100 in quarters, $50 in dimes, ect. they demand you have an account or get out.

Ive even been looked at crazy for $10 in cents "Sir, you realize that 20 whole rolls of pennies don't you?"

Yeah I know. almost a half a box....

keep it under $50-$60 per bank and not all pennies and it usually goes smoothly when you don't have an account with them.

I like "can I possibly get some change from you, Nothing crazy like $50 in coins please?"

usually its fine as long as you dont' take too many of any one denomination. 2 rolls quarters, 3 rolls dimes, 5 rolls nickles, 10 rolls pennies. If they let you do $60 tack on another roll of quarters.

If you go in there asking for 10 rolls of each you're at $170 and without an account, on short saturday hours and short handed staffing, you are pushing it with the teller who would likely have to go to the back for them and let the line back up further.
