    Exchanged coins for dollar bills perhaps. – Phil Sweet Mar 29 '18 at 15:03

A possible definition that you might be looking for is:

Exchanging multiple coins/notes of a lower denomination for a higher denomination note/bill.

Eg. Exchanging four 25c coins for one dollar bill.


In the context given, it would appear that the speaker was in the habit of exchanging assorted coins for banknotes. Of course it's possible that "cashed in" could be construed as some other conversion, perhaps a bank deposit.

  • Thanks but can you tell me with easy words? I'm not a native speaker and learning English. – xaero2003 Mar 29 '18 at 15:08
