A friend of mine has a giant container full of various coins, mostly foreign, and according to XE.com, worth quite the pretty penny, pardon the pun.

The trouble is, any bank we go to to exchange these coins won't take it, so I'm turning to my fellow W's to see if any of you know what a brotha can do to get some of this exchanged to Canadian.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks!

Near an airport that has international flights, there should be a money changing place.

According to my friend who works at Bank of America, it is a bank policy not to take foreign coins and take paper only because the money has to be mailed overseas.

The coins weigh more than the paper, so there ya go.

I suspect your Canadian banks have he same policy.
