"Change purse"?

Change purse is a very unusual word in English

Maybe it's because I'm in my forties, but I don't find it unusual. People don't really carry a lot of cash anymore, so maybe change purses have gone out of fashion?

Also in my forties, also surprised anyone thinks this is an unusual word.

I have never heard of a "change purse." I know what a purse is but why?

It ought to be "coin purse", I think, but the very concept is anachronistic, at least one generation has passed since inflation has eliminated nonmechanical coin-only transactions.

(In fact, the only time I've heard "coin purse" used in the last twenty years is as a rude reference in Family Guy. I've never heard "change purse".)

Brianary....we actually said and say "change purse"...of course in my very old generation : )) AND I am now using one as the zipper broke in the change section of my wallet AND a lot of people still pay for things in cash and recieve coins back....of course not for cars, boats, houses in cash : ))

Coin purse can be used to carry change for bus tickets. It works better than a pocket even today.

Far more familiar with the term "coin purse"

'Pièces' for coins, should work?

This is my question too - I got marked wrong for putting "pièces" and not "pièce de monnaies". I thought the context disambiguated.

At least two dictionaries document "change purse": Macmilan English Dictionary and Merriam Webster's Advanced Learner's English Dictionary. And we have several people who confirm it.
