Federal Reserve Banks accept only genuine, current U.S. coin for deposit. Deposits of the following are NOT accepted at the Federal Reserve Banks:
Note: Effective May 9, 2016, the Federal Reserve Banks temporarily suspended the acceptance of uncurrent coin deposits. This suspension will remain in effect until the U.S. Mint resumes its bent or partial coin redemption program. The Federal Reserve Banks will send a notification once it resumes accepting deposits of uncurrent coin. View the customer communication (PDF) for more details about this temporary change. If you have any questions, please contact your local FedCash Services District Contacts.
Institutions should forward counterfeit or unlawfully altered coin directly to their local U.S. Secret Service office. If the Federal Reserve Bank detects counterfeit or unlawfully altered coin in an institution's deposit, it is forwarded to the Secret Service, and the institution is charged for the difference.
To prepare a deposit of current U.S. coin:
The bags containing your deposit must be securely sealed to ensure that unauthorized access can be easily detected. Use a seal that cannot be compromised without detection and bears your institution's identification. We may refuse a deposit if the integrity of a bag appears to have been compromised, or if the seal does not effectively deter access to the bag's contents.
For each endpoint, the basic level of service is one deposit and one order of coin per week. The Federal Reserve Banks recognize that factors such as volume and cost may require less frequent service to some endpoints and more frequent service to others.
The Federal Reserve Banks may, at their discretion, partially fill orders to maintain coin inventories. We may refuse deposits, defer or reverse credit, and/or return deposits if an institution fails to comply with any of the terms of Operating Circular 2. Returns are at an institution's risk and expense.
