San Cap Community Bank calls for coins

By Staff | Jul 23, 2020


Due to a national coin shortage caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, Sanibel Captiva Community Bank is asking consumers to turn in their coins for cash dollars. Customers also have the option to direct deposit the funds into their accounts.

Prolonged business closures and a reduction in coin production and circulation associated with the pandemic is resulting in a limited availability of coins required by banks to serve customers. The shortage is affecting local restaurants and businesses that accept and provide change in cash.

“Coin counting for paper currency or direct deposit is always free for our customers, and we are asking for their assistance in helping us increase coin circulation,” Lana Hollier, senior vice president and director of deposit operations, said. “Coin-counting allows us to assist both individuals who would like to turn in their coins and local businesses that in need of getting more coins into circulation to complete transactions.”

To have coins counted and exchanged, visit the following bank branches: 2475 Library Way, Sanibel; 7040 Winkler Road, Fort Myers; 15975 McGregor Blvd., Fort Myers; 11691 Gateway Blvd., Fort Myers; or 9311 College Parkway, Fort Myers. Social distancing and safety measures are in place.

Coins do not need to be rolled in order to be turned in.
