Coin Counters Buyer's Guide


Coin counters save time and increase accuracy by counting unsorted coins. They eliminate errors that can be caused by manually counting each coin piece by piece. The coins are placed into the tray of the counter. The machine sorts, counts, batches, and adds the totals. Some machines are designed to exclusively handle US currency, while others can be used all around the world using a selectable gauge for adjusting coin thickness and diameter.


  • How many coins do I need to process at a time and at what speed?
  • Each machine is designed to process a certain amount of coins per minute. If speed is not an issue, a manual coin sorter might suffice. Manual coin sorters require an operator to turn a hand crank to load the coins through the machine. When the crank is turned, the coins fall into the appropriate slots and they are counted. If you are in an environment where large volumes of coins need to be sorted then a fast electric sorter might better suit your needs. Some electric coin counters can count at a rate of over 2600 coins per minute, which translates to a whopping 156,000 coins per hour.

  • What does it mean when it says a machine is "manual"?
  • For most models, manual means that an operator needs to turn a hand crank to load the coins through the machine. When the crank is turned, the coins fall into the appropriate slots and they are counted.

  • Do you plan on counting only U.S. currency or foreign as well?
  • Many models only have the ability to count U.S. currency. A few select machines that we carry have a selectable gauge knob to adjust the thickness and diameter of various coins. This allows you to configure the machine so that it can sort foreign coins, tokens, gold coins, etc.

  • What are your security needs?
  • Most of the coin counters/sorters we sell have a coin rejection feature, which separates suspicious coins from the pile being sorted. This is useful to prevent counterfeit or foreign coins from getting counted.

  • Batch: A set number of coins to be processed in a single program run
  • Chassis:
  • The framework to which the components of an electronic machine are attached.

  • Stacker:
  • Arranges coins in an orderly vertical pile
