“Lucy Change" - Free Coin Counting Service
Sometimes we all need assistance with the little things — like counting spare change and piggy bank contents! Visit select American Heritage branches and use Lucy Change, our coin counting machine. Lucy Change coin counting service is absolutely free for all our members. See our Locations page to see which branches offer a Lucy Change machine.
American Heritage offers free Notary services and Medallion STAMP to its members, and it’s available at every branch.
A Notary is an impartial, state-licensed legal witness to the signing of a document. The Notary will acknowledge the signing with his or her own signature and with a notary seal on the document.
The Medallion STAMP is a signature guarantee program for the safe transfer of securities. By endorsing the securities transfer document with the Medallion STAMP, the transferring financial institution (American Heritage Credit Union) is guaranteeing that your signature is genuine.
To have a document notarized or Medallion STAMP guaranteed:
- The signer must present a valid photo ID and sign a log book
- Must sign the document in the presence of the Notary or authorized Medallion STAMP endorser
Please contact your local branch before you visit to ensure that a notary or Medallion STAMP endorser will be available.
