    It's actually worse, according to the piece, the bank said it no longer accepts any coins.

    Interesting...
    However, why doesn't he actually just spend the toonies? They are kind of a large denom. coin- worth $1.50.
    About the rest of his coins, it is obviously absurd that a banking institution would decline legal tender.
    "Grocery stores, they love coins." Well, they source their change from banks- not from consumers.

    I'd absolutely, 100%, without a doubt withdraw all deposits and close my accounts at said bank. I'd also try to get a grassroots boycott going to hit the bank where it hurts most. Their deposits and bottom line.

    This nonsense went back a few years ago when folks went to deposit commemorative issues

    I thought Toonies were a $2 coin.

    I forgot to clarify- $2 CAD is $1.5 USD

    It's like the bank branches here that are going "all-automated."

    No body seems to appreciate money anymore :(

    Ouch. Just a handful of years ago they'd be worth more than $2 USD!

    The kind that have figured out that they don’t make any profit on the transaction.

    I thought it was unusual that I have a US Bank branch that doesn't have mint rolled coins, still they deposit coins even if it's all pennies. :p

    My bank exiled and obliterated its automatic change counter over a year ago. If I have change to count (which, sadly, I rarely do these days) I have to use my wife's bank. I took that as a potential sign that currency was no longer welcome there. Sigh.
