Can my business benefit from a coin counter?

Posted by: James on May 4th, 2011

ABC110 Electric Automatic Coin CounterJust as capturing Osama Bin Laden is important to the war on terror, so too can saving time and money be for your business.  No matter what type of business you run, it’s always a good idea to save energy, time, and money.  Have you been pondering up ideas to make your business run more efficiently, simultaneously making happiness a bigger part of your life?  If so, a coin counter might be the perfect fit!

One of the greatest things about coin counters that most people don’t realize is they are incredibly affordable.  Starting as low as $150.00, you can find a great solution for all your coin counting needs.  Whether you’re running a local laundry business, a church, an arcade, or any business with a lot of coins, there is definitely a coin counter just waiting to help your business run smoother, while at the same time making yourself or your employees more content.  Nobody likes counting coins when there are so many better things to do in life.

How do coin / currency counters work?

Coin counters come with many various functions.  With speed and amazing accuracy, all coin counters will add up your coins for you.  However, a lot of counters come equipped with the ability to sort, wrap, batch count, crimp, and bag.  They will use a metal basin that rapidly spins the coins into their respective slots or tubes.

If you run a business that deals mainly with quarters, there are many currency counters on the market for that, as well.  Take, for example, the Model 915 from Magner.
With this model, you simply set the machine to count the desired coin (quarter, dime, nickel, or penny) and dump in your stash.  The machine will automatically recognize the coin you selected, count it, and sort it into a bag or tube attachment, while at the same time rejecting all other coin types into a separate bin.

For counters that count and sort, either into tubes or drawer sets, here is a great video tutorial on how they operate:

If wrapping or bagging is more ideal for you, here is another great video to show how they work:

You might be wondering if coin counters will only work with U.S. currency or standard coins in general.  The answer is no.  Many currency counters will work with tokens, loonies and toonies (Canadian coins), and many others.  A great model to consider for this would be the Semacon S-120 coin counter.

As a pioneer in the money handling industry, Semacon has been around for nearly 20 years.  I have been selling these machine for over 5 years, and I’ve found Semacon to be one of the most reliable brands in the market.

From the most basic and affordable counter, to the high end robust models, Officezone is an excellent–okay, the best–source for finding the highest quality currency counters from all the great brand names like Semacon, Magner, Klopp, Cassida, and many others.  You can find our entire selection of coin counters here.
