Simply slide the coins in (towards the left side for easiest entering) and watch the read-out count! To remove change, simply unscrew the lid, remove the desired amount and then replace the lid. Enter the amount you have removed into the deduction buttons and the top digital display will maintain an accurate balance. Auto Digital Coin Bank requires 2 AAA batteries (not included). The digital read out will notify when batteries are low. Change the batteries before they have completely died and the bank will remember your total for 1 minute so you won't have to recount the change within.
