The downside is that they are all in coins in your piggy bank, and using coins to make a purchase can be a hassle. Moreover, with deposit rates hitting 4%, keeping coins in piggy banks seems like a wasteful thing to do. 

It is also worth noting that you can use up to 20 coins in Singapore to make a purchase or transaction, as stated by MAS. Moreover, some shops have a right to refuse coins by putting a 'written notice' to indicate this. So instead of gathering dust, here are the places to deposit coins in Singapore. Some options are free, while others may charge a small fee. There are also locations for those holding 1st series coins, commemorative coins and even Brunei coins to deposit.
