Coin Sorter Buying Guide


Coin sorters and coin counters save a ton of time from:

Counting by hand
Driving to the bank
Driving to the grocery store to use their coin counting machine (and a fee to boot)

Buying a coin sorter is your first step in saving time and money from this tedious chore. Couple of things to consider when shopping for a coin counter or coin sorter are:

Hopper Size
Counting Speed
Anti-Jam Features
Value Counting
Ease of Coin Wrapping
Value Count Record Keeping

Hopper Size

The hopper size of a coin sorter determines how many coins you can dump at a time.  Volume and usage usually determines the size of the hopper you will need.  High volume coin sorting normally calls for larger hopper size.  Low volume coin sorting calls for smaller hopper sizes.

Royal Sovereign coin sorter hoppers can hold anywhere between 200 - 800 coins at a time.

Counting Speed

Coin sorter and coin counter speeds are normally measured in coins per minute.  Coins per minute is the number of coins a machine can sort or count in a minute.

Royal Sovereign coin sorters can count between 150 - 300 coins per minute.

Anti-Jam Features

Automated electric coin sorters may have a tendancy to jam.  Sophisticated and user friendly coin sorters will usually come with anti-jamming features to provide uninterrupted coin sorting.  

Royal Sovereign coin sorters come with automatic anti-jam technology that will self-fix jams.  They also come with removable tops for manual removable of more stubborn jams.

Value Counting

One of the key features to consider when purchasing a coin sorter is to determine if the machine has value counting capabilities.  Some coin sorters will simply sort coins by its denomination.  Higher end coin sorters will calculate and display the value of the sorted coins, by dollar value and quantity.

Royal Sovereign coin sorter series FS-2 and FS-4 come equipped with digital displayed coin value counting.

Ease of Coin Wrapping

Coin wrapping after sorting and counting your change is also a tedious task.  But some coin sorters will automatically sort your change into wrapper tubes to eliminate this step.  

Royal Sovereign coin sorters will automatically sort your coins into coin wrapper shaped tubes.  Simply place the correct denomination wrapper into its tube before sorting.  Once a tube is filled, simply pull out the wrapper and its ready to store or transport.

Value Count Record Keeping

Another option to consider when purchasing a coin sorter is record keeping features.  Some coin sorters will have the option to print out a receipt copy of your coin count, a very convenient feature for businesses.

The Royal Sovereign FS-44P digital coin sorter comes with the option of attaching a thermal printer that will print out a record receipt of the dollar value count.
