A coin wrapper, sometimes known as a bank roll or roll, is a paper or plastic container for a number of coins. In the 19th century, coins were distributed in large cloth bags and coins were hand wrapped. Since the onset of the 20th century, coin wrapping machines have been in use. The earliest patent for a coin wrapping machine was in 1901. By 1910, automatic coin counting machines which could reject counterfeit coins, wrap coins, and crimp the coin wrapper ends were in use.
