Our Hunt For Coin-Counting Machines
It took the kids quite some time to collect this much coins:
But it took us longer to find a coin-counting machine that works. We went to many banks, searching high and low only to be told that their coin-counting machines are out of order OR their cut out time is 11am. Who on Earth goes out to deposit coins so early? Okay maybe it is only ME who does not leave the house before noon… pfft.
I almost gave up and got tempted to deposit these coins in the coin machine in AEON in exchange for their cash vouchers but refrained as the idea of carrying these heavy coins to 1Utama simply doesn’t make sense.
Today, we were at Maybank Kota Damansara (the one with A&W drive-thru) and casually enquire if they have a coin-counting machine. To our surprise they do AND their cut off time is 3pm! This makes more sense to me :D
We proceeded with counting of the coins. It is so easy these days. Just dump everything into their coin-counting machine and the machine will not only count but separate them accordingly. Imagine counting those coins manually. It will take us forever!
Even with this machine, it took us quite awhile. Finally, we were told that there were RM543 worth of coins in there excluding the ‘rejected’ ones. The rejected ones are coins of different currencies and some local ones but with not so standard size I guess and also our 1cent coins. 1cent coins are not wanted anymore.
I deposited that RM543 into both the boys’ account. That means they each got RM271.50 richer that day, so much richer than their mother already ^_^
