    exchanging foreign coins

    I found out that I have a large amount of CAD coins at home, mostly in small denominations such as cents, pennies, dimes, quarters and also some 2 dollars, totalling about 6 CAD.

    I don't think I will visit Canada or the US in the future. How can I get back something useful from the coins? For example, if I can exchange them for a 5 CAD note, I can happily deposit it into my bank.

    I would say you can't. Banks don't like small notes or coins in foreign currency.

    I would give them to a charity that accepts foreign currencies like Change for Food in airplanes.
