Coin Counter Machine

by Ka Edong on September 19, 2008

I spotted this machine a Jewel Osco shop in Chicago. It’s a coin counter. And if I remember correctly, it allowed the user to convert loose change to either cash or pre-paid cards or gift cheques.

I remember seeing a Philippine version of a coin counter. It was an invention by a member of the Philippine inventor’s association.

I remember it was like a lunch box with a window to see where the coins go. There was a receiving pan at the top of the box where all the coins were placed. The user would just have to manually slide the coin into a slot at one corner of the pan. When the coin fell through, it would be sorted automatically and will be stacked inside the clear box in a neat row of coins.

Nice!

    Yup, I’ve seen a machine like this before in Manila. But that was years ago and I can’t even remember where I saw it.

    But I think it wouldn’t be a big hit here in the Philippines where most neighborhood stores and the public transport are constantly short of change, much to the annoyance of the public.

    Yup. Suddenly the 25 centavo coins have been called back into active duty.

    It doesn’t take a machine in the Philippines to do this chore of counting coins.

    Anybody can ask the anak or pamangkin to just count the coins — for free! … or a little cellphone load :-)

    I actually seen this machine already. It was at Digos City branch of BPI. I saw one of their employees using it on counting bags of coins.
    In some Places in Philippines maybe there’s coins scarcity, but there are places where coins abound.
