When you place your order for coins to begin coin roll hunting, most banks will complete this order without any added charge. They are merely providing a service that they complete almost everyday. However, in some cases, banks will charge a certain percentage per roll when ordering your coins, which can work out to about 10% of the total purchase (can be 10 cents per roll, or more). This could occur at any bank or at anytime really.

However, as a general rule, we still prefer that you order your coins from a bank you are signed up with and have a history with. Here is why. When you go to order your coins and the issue of extra fees comes up, you can always reply that if you can’t get your coins at face value, then you will be bringing your business somewhere else (to a different bank!). Bank managers will most likely not be willing to lose your account over these fees and will hopefully drop them altogether. If you have a good amount of savings in your account, you can use this to your advantage as well. Be sure to let them know that you have quite a bit of savings at their bank. Remember, you want to get these coins only at face value so you can begin coin roll hunting as soon as possible, so use everything you can to your advantage. Please note that you may need to have a minimum amount in your account for this, so make sure you meet this requirement.
Coin roll hunting requires that you pick up boxes fairly consistently, most likely on a weekly basis. Could you imagine paying these extra fees each and every time you pick up your boxes? This would defeat the purpose of coin roll hunting to an extent. Since we are making so many frequent pick ups for coins, this is another reason why these extra fees are never to be paid in our opinion.
Remember, always be polite when dealing with your bank, but also be firm that you will not be willing to pay these extra fees for your coins. With the above tactics you should be able to get your coins at face value, and if there is still a problem, you do have options at other bank chains or other banks. Once you have these coins, then you can begin coin roll hunting.
