How Many $2 Coins Fit in a 600ml Coke Bottle?

This goes back way, way back when I had my first child…over 12 years ago.  I had a friend who saved all her $2 coins in an empty coke bottle and ever since then, I’ve done the same on and off.  It’s a fun way to save for a rainy day and it can be a fun way for kids to save too.

But how many $2 coins fit in a 600ml Coke Bottle?  There are rumors of $1,000…and here’s the verdict:

How many $2 doing can fit in a 600ml coke bottle?

I fit $880

$120 shy of $1,000

    I just done it with a 2 litre coke bottle because I was saving for my cruise. I filled it and it was the grand total of $3062. Didn’t really miss it and it grew so fast. Funny though I wouldn’t spend any $2 coins whilst saving lol

        I have just counted out my 600ml plastic Coke bottle I filled with $2 Australian Coins.
        It had $908.00 jammed into it…… the last coin was even with the top opening.
        Only $92.00 short of the $1000.00 target I ead I would have.
        Close enough for me.

        🙂

    As a family we’re doing it now for a cruise in a big drink bottle total in 3 weeks so for $130 adds up quick doing $1 and $2

      You can tip them out of the top (it just takes a little while), or yes, just cut the bottle open and let it all spill out!

    Stumbled across this, I’ve got an approximate 2 litre vase… saving my £2 coins and whatever other change is in my pockets at the end of the week…

    Didn’t realise I might be able to save this much… Thank you for the post 🙂

    I super glue the lid on my 2ltr Coke bottle to avoid temptation of robbing it if I’m caught short of change it takes awhile to fill it but end result will be good

      I think it would depend on how often you had spare change to put in. I find I hold onto the $2 coins and avoid spending them if i can. So it would vary with each person.

    I did this before with notes, in a 600ml Coke bottle. I was laughing my way to the bank! I started out with coins, cashed them in for notes and continued for a while. I found it easier to make it a “bill” so every pay day I would take $20-$100 out and leave it there. It’s a really great saving technique. 🙂 doing it again but this time it’s for me and my little sister to go overseas or something :3

    Can’t wait to start mine!
    I’ve done it before ages ago but I mixed all coins gold and silver and it was still a nice sum but not as much if I were only using gold coins but this time I’m only going to use the gold coins only by having one with $1 coins and one with $2 coins
    I’m saving for a beautiful horse and gear
    I have 7 beautiful rescue pets so this will really help me along with my life long wish especially when most of my money goes towards my little 7 rescue babies who are all worth every cent
    Can’t wait to start !
    Good luck everyone xo
