Collected coins from ship mates to change into dollars for a donation. Have anywhere from 3-6 pounds of coins from each country. Need a US company/ financial institution that will exchange the coins for dollars. Thanks.

    I don't think money-changers accept foreign coins at all, only notes. And when you buy currency they only supply notes, with the purchase fee in exact local currency. Perhaps a numismatist shop will buy them. – Weather Vane Apr 30 '19 at 12:37

    Exchange of foreign coins requires so large volumes to make economic sense that it's only barely a travel question. You'd need to find a very specialized processor. Perhaps there's a better chance that Personal Finance & Money knows one, though the topicness of the question is a bit iffy there too. – hmakholm left over Monica Apr 30 '19 at 12:53
  • I know in the UK when you go to currency exchange places you can donate any type of currency you might have left from your holiday, maybe you can do this in the US? – BritishSam Apr 30 '19 at 13:03

If you have access to an airport where Virgin Atlantic flies, see if they will accept it. They have "Change for Children" appeal where they will accept pocket change in any currency on flights. I would try to call and speak to a manager first.
