Coin bags

Organise your bags by type of coin

Please try to group all of the same type of coins together when bagging them up. This will help us to process your deposit quickly and easily.

Maximum amounts per bag

You can deposit:

  • bags of £1 or £2 coins up to the value of £20
  • bags of 50p and 20p coins up to the value of £10
  • bags of 10p and 5p coins up to the value of £5
  • bags of 2p and 1p coins up to the value of £1.

How many bags can you deposit?

You can pay up to 5 full bags of coins into your account each day.

If you have more than 5 full bags, you'll need to pay these in on different days.

Loose coins and change

If you're depositing a small amount of loose coins, you can pay these in at a Nationwide branch.

If you have a large number of loose coins, we can give you bags to separate these into. You'll then have the same limit of 5 full bags per day.


Depositing into a children's Smart Account

If you're saving money into a children's Smart Account, you can pay in any amount of coins. To help us process your deposit quickly, please try to separate the coins into bags that contain only one type of coin.

Paying off a debt with coins

If you're paying off a debt to Nationwide (for example, paying off a mortgage, loan, credit card or arranged overdraft), there is no limit on the amount of coins you can deposit.

Find your local branch

When you've bagged up your coins ready for depositing, we'll be happy to help you at your local branch.
