So I have never went to the bank to search for rare coins. I see people buy boxes of coins and what not, but I was wondering how you do it. What do you say? Do they get mad? Can I get quarters, dimes, nickels and pennies? Do I need to give them notice? If it helps I bank at CiBc...Any advice would be great!

I typically just walk in and ask "Can I buy a box of pennies and a box of nickels?" I haven't had one yet say no. I have had a couple of tellers ask why - and I just tell them that my son and I collect coins. They haven't seemed to care, they just go to the vault and bring them out.

Now, when I start doing halves, I'm going to have to ask them to order me a box - but since I know them by now, I doubt I'll have a problem.

Yeah just go in and ask for a box. I have had one bank tell me I had to order them because they don't keep s lot of coins on hand. You will do fine. The first time is always a little scary.... Lol

First time, they thought I was crazy to want 2000 nickes. But I got them. I was told they order on Thursday, so I made sure I have enough for the g-kids and myself. (usually 5-7 boxes) I did this a couple of times and then the bank queen bee flippantly asked jokingly "you do have an accout, right?) They were annoyed, at least. I had to open one in order to feed my habit. But all's good now. Halves are the only thing they wont order, no demand. Well I demand. I've met the president, we're chummy now, maybe a way in. They're just people. Treat 'em right and let them know what you're doing. You'd be suprised, I got 3 silvers saved for me by the queen the other day.

You might have to go to the business banking desk to get your coins. I would pick up boxes of nickels once in a while, the tellers just thought I was weird! I asked them if anyone else was ever picking up boxes to search but I was the only one at that branch.

Yeah I go to CIBC aswell and I just walk in and ask for a box of what ever I want to search (except halves because they dont carry them). Some banks want you to have an acount and others dont care. One time I went in to CIBC and they wouldn't give me any boxes becuase they said they didn't have the key to the vault!

Happy Hunting!

You get days off for rain? Wow, hope you are getting paid still...

Just wait till you show up at the bank and all the tellers know your name and are headed to the vault to get your weekly coin order.

The only time I have had a problem is asking for boxes at the little small town banks. Sometimes they may run short on rolled coin and will ask if I could wait a week or so until they get more coin. Not really a problem at all but an opportunity. I know then that they will gladly accept my re-rolled return coins and will remember that I helped them out and they will more willing to save odd stuff for me.

Yeah, Just go in and ask them, No problemo.

I've tried CRH'ing, It's *** Edited by Staff | The bad word filter is in place for a reason. Bypassing the filter and making the intended word obvious anyway is completely unacceptable. ***. I did a couple boxes of quarters and dimes, and didn't find anything other than some over circulated commemorative coins.

Don't bother.

I have to say thanks for all the great advice in this post. I went to the bank last week and bought two boxes of pennies. On the last roll in the first box I found a 2006 unmarked magnetic penny! What a great feeling for someone who has never found any coins that are too special.
I'm hooked!

to buy is one thing, to trade is another, I basically go into any bank and always get my coin, usually you have to have an account to trade (ie a box of pennies for a different box of pennies). CIBC is usually pretty lenient and will let you cash your coins for paper money even though you don't have an account. The others I had to have an account. Only bank I have traded my paper money not my bank at is CIBC and they traded. Just started searching paper money so only got at my dad's credit union and my bank.

No,no fees.I have a bank account at C.I.B.C.The banks can only charge face value.I once asked one teller if I could have that half dollar she had in her drawer.(A 1966 silver half)Cost=$0.50 Same goes for rolls/boxes or just change,to do laundry etc.
