Important for her

You should definitely know that about your Safebag handover

  • Label the safebag before you fill in the coins
  • Close the safebag carefully with the integrated adhesive tape. We ask for your caution, as the integrated adhesive tape sticks very strongly and can only be used once

Safebags can be returned to all private customer centers with cash registers and other selected private customer centers. You can find the right private customer center by selecting the "Coin acceptance" feature in our branch search.
