I've been reading a lot about people searching there rolls or keeping rolls of coins or even boxes. I also see they go to there local banks.

My question is do you just go there and be like can I get a roll of quarters and that is what you search or what?

Are there other places you can buy rolls and start the search?

You can get rolls from most banks - even banks you have no account with. If you ask for small amounts - you will get customer wrapped rolls. If you ask for large amounts (for cents - amounts over $25), you will almost certainly get as box,(or boxes) of coins. I go through about $150 worth of Lincoln cents a month. I get $100 at a time ordered a week in advance - and get 4 $25 boxes of Lincoln cents. Then throughout the month I just ask banks I run across (and have no account with) for $5 - $10 worth of pennies at a time. I purposely ask for small amounts at these banks to make certain I get customer wrapped rolls. They often contain coins that have not circulated in years (sometimes decades), and just occasionally portions of collections that are being turned in for face value. (like wheat cents etc...)

I normally roll search Lincoln cents. But you can still find silver in dime, quarter and half rolls.

Good luck, and let us know what you find!

Yes, customer wrapped rolls have the greatest chance of finds.

My favorite banks to get rolls of circulated coins are from small sized banks in medium to big cities, they usually re-roll their own coins brought in off the street. The same goes for almost any bank in small towns. Also look for smaller banks that may not do a lot of "business" type accounts for they will not need to keep their roll supply up for the businesses to give their customers change and will not need to order rolls from the Federal Reserve which have gone through special machines that account for coin weight "silver" and out of shape/error coins.
These banks almost always reroll the coins that come off the street.
And with the way the economy is now, many people are cashing in those jugs and jars of change they have been saving for years.
When I go to the big banks or really any bank, the first teller that greets me or opens up to me is the teller I will go to , to ask for my rolls. Just be somewhat business like and polite and you will get what you are needing.once I have a good conversation with the teller I ask them if they have rolls that come from the Federal Reserve or if they reroll their own coins. I like a small bank that have the rolls with uncrimped rolls, this can mean the rolls were hand loaded and the ends just bent over or taped shut....they don't have time to "search" the coins when they are trying to resupply their coin roll inventory. Hope this may help anyone who reads this, and GOOD LUCK!

Toddscoins, I've been roll hunting steadily for the last 4 years...multiple bank accounts and thousands of dollars worth searched...I have yet to come across a bank that has supplied me with coins directly from the fed reserve. How do you know that they come from the fed?
When I listen to LED ZEPPELIN...so do my neighbors...

Dirt fishing since '72

I go to carryouts and ask them to give me a roll from the cash register. They use some kind of plastic roll measure thing and they just give me the loose coins. I done that with nickels the other day and found a 1948. I haven't went to a bank in a long time though.
