No, unfortunately we do not accept any foreign coins; however, there are plenty of things you can do with your leftover HKD coins!
- Give them to charity - UNICEF’s Coins for Kids is a charity that collects leftover FX coins. The funds then go towards a number of great initiatives such as providing clean drinking water, much-needed vaccines, food, school books and stationary. Click here to find out more. Many airlines and airports also have collection boxes or envelopes where you can donate your coins to charity.
- Save them for another trip - if you think you (or friends or family!) may be visiting a destination where they can use US coins, save them for your next trip.
- Keep them as mementos from your trip – it’s a fun way of remembering all the destinations you’ve visited!
The lowdown on the Hong Kong dollar
Hong Kong is a major global financial centre, so you won’t be surprised to hear that the Hong Kong dollar is one of the most traded currencies on the planet.
Hong Kong was a British colony from 1842 right up to when it became a part of China in 1997, but it’s always had its own currency. In 1972, the HKD was pegged to the US dollar, and it still is today – at a rate of about 7.80 HKD to 1 USD.
The government issues Hong Kong’s coins, but bank notes come from three banks: HSBC, Standard Chartered Bank and the Bank of China.
If you’re travelling to Macau from Hong Kong, you can use the HKD there too.
