Full Answer

Exchanging change at a bank is a no-cost option, and most banks exchange coins for cash. Some banks may require large numbers of coins to be counted and placed in coin rollers prior to acceptance. Using a coin sorting machine requires no real work, but most machines charge between 9 and 10 percent of the total amount as a fee before letting a person claim his cash.
