WAUWATOSA, Wis. (CBS 58) -- You've probably heard that there's a national shortage of coins.
On Thursday, July 23, Jim Holton of Wauwatosa brought in three big bucket-loads of coins to the North Shore Bank at Brookfield Square to be counted and exchanged for money that's not quite so heavy.
Holton says he's been accumulating these coins for 20 years.
"My son when he was born, got a Packers piggy bank," Holton said. "So every day when I came home I stopped for a cup of coffee every morning and I just put my change in there."
Twenty years later, Jim Holton was scooping all those coins into the county machine.
The total was $5,366.05.
