Do you buy my Yen coins too?
Unfortunately we don’t buy back coins but there are a few cool things you can do with them instead of filling up a random glass with them or keeping them buried away.
Donate your leftover coins to charity:
We’re partnered with a UNICEF program called Small Change, Big Difference. This initiative collects unwanted foreign coins and uses them to protect and enrich the lives of children around the world.
Even a couple of coins can make a profound impact, allowing a child to survive and thrive. For example:
- 1 UK penny = 1 day of clean drinking water.
- 65 euro cents = a pencil and book for school.
- 243 Thai baht = 20 doses of life-saving measles vaccine.
Donate your foreign coins to this program at any Travel Money Oz store and discover how your small change can make a big difference.
Do you know there are donation boxes at airports all over the world that collect your spare foreign coins and donate them to worthy charities? You probably don’t — according to finder.com.au’s research, less than 5 per cent of Australian travellers actually use them.
Airlines also accept leftover change on board and donate them to good causes.
