Is there a place where I can exchange foreign coins?

My father has built up a lot of US coins (nickles, dimes, quarters) from an old business he had, I'd estimate the coins are valued at around $60 US, is there any place in the GTA (preferably north) that will exchange them?

RBC used to do this. Not sure if they still do. You probably need to have an account in any case.
When i worked @ rbc back in 2008... they told me not to take usd coin. Only cad, usd paper notes...and gbp surprisingly!

Offer it to someone that you know that travels to US frequently at a better than posted FX rates or put an ad on Kijiji if you don’t know anyone personally and have no plans heading south yourself.

I guess next time I travel to the US, I can find a coin sorter over there and use that.

Foreign coins? I doubt it.
