Liberty Coin Service Foreign Currency Exchange Rates Far Better Than Detroit Metro Airport!

Dollars and Sense
October 26, 2017 6:00 PM

A comparison of prices customers were charged on October 16, 2017 by Liberty Coin Service and by the foreign currency exchange service at Detroit’s Metropolitan Airport showed that buyers could get up to 22% better prices at Liberty in small transactions and up to 11% better prices in larger exchanges.

Said LCS CEO and owner Tom Coulson, “When LCS Communications Officer Patrick A. Heller passed through Detroit Metro on the morning of October 16, he snapped a photo of the selling prices for ten different currencies on a sign at the foreign currency exchange service there. After he returned, we compared what customers would pay there compared to our own charges for the same currency. When you factor in the $9.95 transaction charge at Detroit Metro on top of the exchange rate, Liberty’s rates provide customers 18% to 22% more foreign currency for expenditures of $100 and 7% to 11% more foreign currency for purchases of $1,250 US. Even not including the transaction fee, which Liberty does not charge, Liberty provides customers more currency for every currency compared.
