Stopped by a QFC while getting out in the countryside to enjoy the beauty and air-conditioning with my wife and garnered a couple $1 Sacagawea coins, a 37 wheat (a first for me), $2 Australian, Chinese dynasty coin, and a few foreign and clad coins. Was pleasantly surprised....

Thanks for viewing!

Wow. Lately, not a thing in the rejection slot at any of the ones I've checked. Hard to be covert in checking these things, so maybe others are onto me. Great score, man.

Great mix you found there. Big bucks for a Coinstar.

I must live in a really cheapo area, never find any change in a coinstar.

Maybe in a frugal area where they don't throw away money. :)

From your second photo, the Chinese coin mint mark indicates it was minted in Suzhou Jiangsu province.
Good to know...would you happen to know the dates for that coin...I think my other ones were 1720-1850..

Hit Wallyworld coinstar today, 60cents in clad, not worth a pic
I understand
I'm trying to refrain from posting unless it's unusual...but congratulations anyway...60 cents is 60cents.... When you keep finding change in the coinstars eventually you end up with jars of coins. :)
