Man brings in $7,000 worth of coins to Herndon credit union; sets record
by Gregg MacDonald, Staff Writer
The coin counting machine at Herndon’s Northwest Federal Credit Union branch recently got the biggest workout it has ever experienced.
George Shoemaker, 66, a credit union member for nearly 20 years, took to heart Benjamin Franklin’s adage “a penny saved is a penny earned” and brought in all the coins he had been collecting for 22 years — thousands of dollars worth.
During the more than two decades of collecting, all his pennies, nickels, dimes and quarters added up.
“By the time he brought the coins to us for deposit, it took over two hours to count them all in our coin counter, and they totaled $7,124,” said Northwest Federal Credit Union spokeswoman Amy Richards.
“This was the largest, single deposit of coins ever counted at Northwest Federal, which offers its members free access to coin counting machines. I have worked here for six years and nothing else has come close to this amount.”
