Needing a small amount of coins for a school function on June 12, I assumed the logical place to go was my bank of more than 20 years, the Hongkong and Shanghai Bank.

An initial request at the general service counters was negative and I was sent to the basement 'cash' department, where I found they would only deal in multiples of $200 of each coin.
