Our Core Values
Global Coin Solutions was founded on two key principles
Helping Charities raise money
From the very start, our number one focus has been to work with charities and help raise much needed funds. Over 90% of the foreign currency we process has been for charities and their initiatives. In 6 years of business, GCS has helped raise funds for children’s charities & hospitals, homeless shelters, food banks, people with disabilities, cancer programs, and more.
We have worked with charities in Canada, the United States, and around the world.
Putting People To Work
Sorting foreign currency is a manual job; there is no way to outsource it to machines (and we don’t want to). The more charities we work with, the more money can be raised, and the more people we will employ. It’s a positive domino effect.
Prior to the pandemic, we employed 10 people at our facility in Toronto and remotely in Montreal. GCS is proud to employ people in our community. We are also an inclusive employer, hiring those with Autism for their unique abilities.
President & Founder
Message From The President
“Global Coin Solutions is enabling charitable cash donations in any currency.
During our 7+ years in business, we have collected and processed over 210,000 kg of mixed currency worth over $16.5 Million!
If you are looking for a new fundraising opportunity for your charity, you have come to the right place!”
Scott’s passion to help charities raise funds has driven him to push the envelope with leftover foreign currency fundraising. While this type of collection is natural for airlines and airports (and something that virtually every charity in the U.K. does), it is something completely new for charities in Canada and the US.
Scott’s business background includes over a dozen years with IBM / Lenovo, working in virtually every area of the PC business. In addition, he has spent several years in small business management and development.

Global Coin Solutions
Scott was invited to speak to 160 delegates with delegates from central banks, mints, academics and industry suppliers around the world. The Coin Conference is the only event to focus on circulating coins as part of cash strategies and, with three years having elapsed since the last event (in Rome in 2019), there was plenty to talk about.
Sustainability and re-circulation were discussed in almost every presentation
