    What To Do With Those Foreign Coins???

    Foreign coins I have found in penny rolls include origins from Bahamas, Barbados, Bermuda, Canada, Euro (2 & 5 cent), Panama, and Poland (5 Groszy). I certainly see the desire to save pennies from Canada since they are no longer produced and perhaps collectable (if not now then maybe in the future). I wonder though the benefits of keeping the other origins listed. Is their an outlet for them?

    For the most part there isn't a good outlet for selling random common foreign coins. Some dealers might buy them for a few $ a pound.

    You can buy or sell them for $5-10 a pound on ebay.

    Problem is that most or all currency exchange places do not accept change at all so unless you know someone that travels there's no easy way to exchange or spend em.

    The shop I deal with pays $2 per pound for common foreign coins (Euros and Canada's not included, they don't want those).

    If you have any with errors/varieties there are some that collect foreign coinage... COC has listings for foreign coinage http://cuds-on-coins.com/ USA Coin Book has prices for some foreign coins https://www.usacoinbook.com/coins/ge...d-world-coins/ Hope that helps a little!!!
