    I do the penny thing and am separating the copper out for myself and a few weeks ago I was with my boys and looked in the reject slot first thing and there was a quarter and I told the boys before I grabbed it that I bet it was silver and it was, a 1964. They couldn’t believe it.

    I found a silver dime and 2 WW2 silver nickels in and on our local coinstar machine in the last year and half

    Do you think it’s still worth collecting silver coins when the USA and Canada are becoming cashless societies like Sweden?

    Good Advice, About two years ago I found a 64 and a 67 half in a coinstar machine. Yeah, that was a good day!

    my wife works at a grocery store and one day a guy put through his change into the coinstar and 3 coins wouldn’t go through so he brought them to her and asked if she would give him the 2 dollars for it. they were a 90 percent kennedy half, a reg clad half, and a 40 percent ike dollar… its amazing what people leave or just trade away for face value

    1954 coin and it’s in great condition! A really nice clean silver dime 🙂

    My first time I found 3 shield pennies, I guess coinstar doesn’t like them either.

    ha, my wife works in a bank and they throw all that stuff in the trash barrel beside their machine. I always tell her to bring it all home but she’s afraid they’ll think she’s stealing. Last time I was there I found 1 silver, 20+ wheat pennies and two handfulls of tokens and forign coins. Then she yelled at me for going into the trash at her work in front of her boss…lol I think he might give her a raise if he knows we are picking the trash

    So far I have not found any US silver ….. but did find a 1936 British Shilling, about size of our quarter …. and a lapel pin with a dirty looking cresent moon that reminded me of New Orleans. Took the pin home and cleaned it up …. designer item from New Orleans, made as a Katrina fundraiser by local artist ….. sterling silver! Retails for $90!

    Wow, it must be a blast to want to buy a Coke and have to stand behind you in line for 40 minutes while you try this stunt.

  20. UnnamedThinker says:

  21. BetterSafeThanSorry7 says:

  22. David Frankel says:

    I found a 1964 dime yesterday in a coinstar. Great tip!

  23. Matthew Almeida says:

    really you can just sit there all day doing that and the machine will always give you a different one?

  24. WendelCanada says:

    you can get free silver from vending machines too just put in a dime and hit coin return until one that you want comes out

  25. NEXPAR says:

    Leaving money on the machine? That’s weird. The only money I see disposed of are pennies. Maybe that’s just Denver. Will have to keep an eye on these machines. Getting $3 for a quarter is not bad… unless you are the one throwing the quarter away.
