I have a big bucket of Thai baht coins that accumulated over about 3 years. Maybe 20-30 kg in weight. I would like to take them and deposit to my Kasikorn bank, or exchange for bills if anyone knows of any bank in Bangkok that has a coin counting machine. Anyone know of any?

 

I've also heard that Tops or some 7/11's might possibly be willing to do this for you. I feel kind of shy, and rude to ask the employees at any of those places to count all these coins. Might take hours. A coin counting machine surely is necessary.

 

Here is a pic of some of the coins (not all are seen here)....

Oh, i forgot to mention, i did call Kasikorn Bank, asked which locations they have coin counting machines at, they said "sorry we don't have", pretty shocking that a city like Bangkok, or country for that matter does not have something as simple as that.

In my hometown we have big machines in most grocery stores (the resemble those reverse osmosis water machines) where you go and DIY do it yourself, dump all your coins in, get a ticket and take to cashier they pay you in dollar bills.

 

I have a feeling of like, guilt? or sadness (for whomever has to count them) or something, to take coins to deposit lol WTF!
