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.
What is the difference between a Buy rate and Sell rate?
The rates we offer you to buy different currencies from us. You’ll find over 60 foreign currencies in our handy currency converter tool, so you can find out in a flash how much it’ll cost to exchange your AUD for most currencies.
The rate you get if you’re selling a foreign currency back to us. Maybe you put on a few pounds over in the UK, or you were left with ten yen when you got back from Japan. You can sell those back to us for the good old Aussie dollar.
Both buy and sell rates change daily and can be affected by a number of different economic factors internationally and domestically (if you'd like to learn more, read our Traveller's Guide To Forecasting EUR blog). If you want to make sure you’re getting the best rate, or if now is a good time to buy or sell currency, make sure to keep up to date with AUD news and currency fluctuations with our Rate Alerts - Simply nominate the currency you need and the rate you’re hoping for and when it hits that point, we’ll let you know lickety split!
For a full list of sell rates, simply head into your local store or give us a call.
