    Withdrawing Coins From Bank Account - any limits? 14th Jul 17 at 10:47 AM
    hi,


    I want to withdraw some cash from my bank account (Barclays basic), in coins, as I will be going to boot fairs over the next couple of weeks, buying and the odd bit of selling. usually In the past I have had a collection of coins set aside in jar!


    is there a limit on how much you can withdraw in coins, or even do banks let you do this? I haven't used a counter in ages (mainly online banking these days).


    I would probably want to withdraw say £100 in each of £2 coins and £1 coins


    thanks.

    I dont think so however you nmay wish to speak to the bank a couple of days prior to let them have sufficient chance to get the coins for you, thus ensuring they have enough there in addition to thier normal day

    as above , you need to make sure they have enough cash in branch


    we once had to go to the bank of England to collect a HUGE amount of 2p pieces as it was the only place in London that held large stocks (long story , went to a wedding and groom refused to make his mind up about what they wanted as a present from a load of us so we changed £200 up into small coins )

    Hi

    A bank should be able to give you this, but as others have said it would be good to go a couple of days early to ask. They may give you them on the spot, or arrange for you to come back. A lot would depend on whether they have that "bagged up" and could just hand them out. If it's all in tills or the safe, they may need more time.

    I've a friend who works for a bank and that's small change to them, so they may be able to help on the spot. You'd be more likely to get it first time if you go to a branch with a business banking counter.
