Cashing in some dollars coins

Hi,
I acquired a good lot of canadian dollar coins and wanted to exchange them for pounds. The trouble is that bureau de changes do not accept coins as a rule. Is there another way of doing this in Britain?
Thanks,
Shimei

some airports have change machines which will accept foreign coins.
And many airports, and some banks, will accept coins for charity.

That wouldnt work either, the bank wont want the cost of shipping the coins back to Canada.

Sometimes those machines that count cash for you in the supermarkets will do this although you'll be charged prob around 15%. Not all bad though as that 15% usually goes to charity
