What are the best coins to coin roll hunt?
If your goal is to find some nice coins to keep and ad to a collection then look at hunting through nickel and penny rolls. If your goal is to find silver then you have dimes, quarters and halves you can search. Quarters are tough because you will not find much because they have been grabbed up pretty good.

Customer wrapped rolls are better if you can find them. You will be able to find more silver coins and copper pennies in them.

Are unsearched coins really unsearched?
Remember, a common-date, average-circulated wheat cent is normally worth two to five cents. Again, these so-called “unsearched” rolls of cents are generally profit-making ventures for the sellers. Relatively few of them turn up really good finds worth more than the going price of a roll.
Can you ask banks for old coins?
Yep, you can go into any bank and ask for rolls of coins, and if they have any unusual coins in their cash drawers (dollars, half’s silver etc). It is better if you have a working relationship with the branch, tellers can and do save coins for their “favourite” clients.
How do you identify a coin error?
Look for any cracks, cuds (or blobs covering an image, word, date, etc.), or missing elements on the images. Turn the coin from top to bottom (no, side-to-side will not work), if your coin was right side up before, it should be right side up now. If it is rotated in any way, it can be quite valuable.
What do you do with coins after coin rolling?
I roll them and take them to my “dump” bank,not the bank I get them from. Two or three boxes at a time. My bank has a coin counting machine (I got the rolls there) where you dump the coins yourself.
How do you get bank rolls with empty coins?
virtually every bank will give you them for free, just ask the teller. Also, it may be time to look around and see if one of the banks or credit unions in your area has a counting machine for customer use. My credit union has 2 in each branch, and they are completely free for members to use.
What do banks do with rolled coins?
Consumers can turn in their coins for cash at banks, which will give them their full value. Banks do not charge a fee to their customers when they deposit coins, but many require that the coins be rolled in wrappers. Some banks like Wells Fargo will exchange rolled coins for noncustomers without a fee.
