An Introduction To Coin Counters - Articles Surfing
Coin counters are machines, sometimes manual, sometimes battery operated and sometimes electrical which sort, count and sometimes wrap hard currency. Coin counters are useful at home for sorting loose change into bankable money.
Home currency coin counters
If you traditionally are a coin saver, maybe emptying your change pocket into a jar or bank, or even a box or larger container, you know that the coins become very heavy. They are too heavy to be carried around in a purse or pocketbook, yet the coins still have value. They can be a wonderful emergency fund for those last minute Christmas or birthday gifts when the credit cards are maxed out. If you have always hated the process of sorting, counting and wrapping the money which you have collected, a coin counter/sorter may be just the tool to make your shopping easier. Unless you are a coin collector and have special display boxes for unique or valuable coins, most change jar coins are a mixtures of nickels, dimes, quarters and pennies.
If you grab a handful of the change and put it into the hopper and turn on the coin sorter counter, you will soon have a collection of neatly sorted, counted and wrapped coin sleeves ready to take to the nearest bank or merchant. Another good use of the coin counter at home is to teach your child the value of saving. They will have the fun of putting coins into battery operated coin counters and saving toward a goal. For less expense, you may want to search for used coin counters. They are just as dependable as the new ones, although they may not include some of the more innovative technology available in the later models.
Commercial currency coin counters
Any time you have a business which garners a lot of coins; a coin counter sorter is a helpful tool to save you time and money. For instance, if you have a vending route with coin operated machines, it is helpful to drop the quarters into the coin counter and finish out your day with correctly wrapped and counted sleeve of coins. Of course, if coins other than quarters are required, such as in some older Laundromats, you may prefer a coin sorter counter. As its name indicates, the coin counter sorter will separate the dimes from the quarters, wrap each and provide you with the total dollars and cents collected by category.
Portable coin counters
Portable coin counters, usually means battery operated coin counters. They are useful in all the places where an electric coin counter would be, but in addition, they can be transported out on your vending machine route or to the local flea market booth where you sell your goods.
Think about a gift of a coin counter for a child's birthday gift, along with a few coins to get them started and you may help them develop good savings habits through out their lifetime.
A gift of a coin counter/sorter makes a thoughtful and useful tribute when a friend is opening a new business. They will remember you each time they use the coin sorter. If your budget won't handle a new electronic sorter, find a good quality used coin counter.
