What we buy; What we pay
Exchange your Canadian, Euro, Swiss & UK coins and notes for U.S. dollars. Bahamas, Barbados, Bermuda and Cayman Islands, too. We also buy paper money from Australia, Brazil and New Zealand.
(scroll down ↓ for more countries, pre-euro currencies)
To calculate the amount we will pay you in U.S. dollars for your euros, pounds or Canadian currency, multiply what you have by the “Conversion Rate.” For example, if you send us 200 British pounds, all in coins, we will pay you $230.00 (200 multiplied by 1.15).

* IMPORTANT NOTICE REGARDING BRAZILIAN BANKNOTES: We only exchange modern Brazilian banknotes ("Reals"). We do not accept Cruzados or Cruzeiros because these are no longer valid Brazilian currency.
* IMPORTANT NOTICE REGARDING OLDER BRITISH COINS: When sending British coins issued prior to 1971 (the pre-decimal British coins such as the ½p, penny, sixpence, or threepence coins), please be aware that they are worth less than the more modern British coins. Prior to 1971 there were 240 pence per £; now there are 100 pence per £.
We buy many old (pre-euro) banknotes & coins, too (Austria, Belgium, Germany, Ireland, Portugal, Spain, etc.)
