    As a child I use to save small change and take it to the bank, to put in my savings account. I once deposited £18 in small change - the bank was happy as long as it was correctly bagged.

    While living in the US I was shocked to discover that many US banks refuse to accept change, even packaged, or if they do - they take a commission on the deposit! A house mate was very annoyed to discover that his jar of quarters was going to be harder to bank than he had anticipated when I started to fill it many years earlier.

    Now I don't have a problem with shrapnel in my pockets, I give all my change to my better half, and she magics it away. It's better for me too, if I don't have change in my pocket, I don't buy snack food, and my pockets don't get holes in them anymore.
