    You do not have to wait for the coin to completely drop before depositing another coin. If you deposit coins too fast then the machine will reject it.

    Don't worry the digital read out of your change will catch up to the amount of coins deposited.

    Some TD bank branches (including several in the GTA) are now offering CoinStar-type services. The service is definitely free for TD customers, but I'm not sure about non-customers. See for example http://dan.matan.ca/TD-Canada-Trust-Bank-Locations-With-Coin-Sorter-Counter
