The coin count

The annual coin totals were:

  1. $2 x 120 = $240
  2. $1 x 168 = $168
  3. 0.50c (old) x 9 = $4.50
  4. 0.50c x 349 = $174.50
  5. 0.20c (old) x 44 = $8.80
  6. 0.20c x 302 = $60.40
  7. 0.10c (old) x 108 = $10.80
  8. 0.10c x 185 = $18.50
  9. 0.05c (old) x 110 = $5.50

Total was 1,395 worth $691.00

I knew the old coins were not legal tender at shops but thought banks would still take them. But no BNZ said they no longer accept them. But rather than waste $29.60, I then trotted up to the Reserve Bank to exchange them. Even better they said they can just direct credit my bank account with them so in a geeky sort of way, rather cool to have a Reserve Bank deposit on the bank statement.

Anyway I now have $700 more to spend – Borders awaits!
