About Coinage

Coinage is now in its 40th year of business. The company was founded by John Hailes who, as a young engineer, identified a need for vending machines in washing laundrettes – a simple, wall mounted machine that dispensed packets of washing powder, enough for a machine cycle. The Soap Shop concept was an instant hit and there were soon few laundrettes in the UK without one of his dispensers. The rest, as they say, is history. We are deeply proud of our roots and the foundations on which we continue to develop our reputation for supplying trusted and highly reliable products.

Our early machines, before the days of solid state electronics, used basic mechanics, levers… bells, pulleys and whistles…. and very limited circuitry.  Needless to say, the company was quick to embrace the emerging technologies that would catapult the potential of our products into previously unimaginable markets and customer applications.

We are totally committed to our customers, our staff and the ongoing development and quality of our products.
