CS ATM that accepts EURO coins (Zurich)

Hi all,

I have a large amount (well about EUR 50's worth!) of EURO coins that i'd like to get rid of.

There are plenty of CS ATMs about in Zurich where i can toss my shiny Rappen and get the money added to my account, but i haven't seen a EURO one anywhere.

Can anyone point me in the right direction?

Thanks,
StirB

Thanks for the advice.

I'd prefer to just swing by a machine to do it and not be a pain in the rear for anyone else in the queue doing serious business.

Is the machine in Uetlihof accessible outside business hours?

The Credit Suisse ATM Locator indicates that the Uetlibergstrasse 231 location is open 24 hours -- but it also says that it only accepts coins in CHF.

With www.comdirect.de you can maintain a free €-current-account, which lets you use Commerzbank's ATM-machines for withdrawals and deposits.

When depositing, some of their ATMs accept €-coins just like some Swiss ATMs accept Francs.

It´s a German bank with branches pretty much everywhere in Germany. So in Zurich they don't have any ATMs.

However, since nearly no bank accepts foreign coins, Comdirect/Commerzbank would be a way to get rid of €-coins pretty close to Zurich AND free of charge.

Only exception of a bank I know that does deal with foreign coins is "Reisebank" - which is (again) a German bank. However I would never avail of their coin-service, since last time I checked they charge a 40% fee.

Some German towns nearby Zürich would be Konstanz, Singen and Waldshut. In Konstanz I´m sure there's a Commerzbank, in the other places I don't know. If you're really considering this option, you can check www.commerzbank.de for branches.

Note that this idea involves opening an account with comdirect.de first! (Just want to make sure you don't go there in vain and return with your coins.)
