Rolls of coins - where to get?

Hello all,

I stumbled across the Depositing piles of coins at the bank and coin counters thread, and realized that I'm a bit on the other side of the coin. (couldn't resist).

Anyway, our dryer only takes the 20 cent coins, which we don't seem to get in change too much. I'd love to stock up on a few rolls of coins - do they come in something like 5 franc rolls? Would the cantonal bank be the best place to get them (that's where we have an account here in Neuchatel)?

The obvious places, where you'd get anything to do with hard currency.

We get ours from the bank for large amounts. For smaller amounts, I inform the local Kiosk operator in the morning and pick it up in the evening in exchange for notes.

They have machines inside most Credit Suisse banks where you can get coins or notes

PS: Each roll will have 50 pieces in it regardless of denomination.

I am not so good in math but I think a roll of CHF 1 coins cost roughly CHF 50, give or take.

Re: Rolls of coins - where to get?

Thanks everyone! I am now (for a few hours anyway) the proud owner of two rolls of 20 cent coins.

Maybe someday we'll get a laundry upgrade and have a few more options. thanks again.

Wouldn't that be nice! If they can do this perhaps it's possible.
