Coin Collection Programme / Serve the community

Coin Collection Programme
Coin Collection Programme

With increased popularity of electronic payment systems, coins usage has largely reduced. Many Hong Kong citizens accumulate spare coins and do not deposit or exchange them in the banks causing coin shortage and creating pressure to mint new coins.
The Coin Collection Programme launched by Hong Kong Monetary Authority is a creative solution based on the concept of “a mobile bank at your doorstep”. Two coin collection carts remodeled from 10-tonnes vehicles equipped with coin counting machines were specially designed to provide coin collection /exchange services to the public free of charge. This is the first of its kinds in the world.

The jury was very positive about the project in many respects. However, compared to other excellent projects, the coin collection Programme did not qualify for an award this year.
