A transaction device is shown which keeps the cash supply secured, yet will allow change to be made for individual transactions.

Specifically, the device includes a cash register-type of keyboard with an exterior tray 10 at the top of a secured compartment 11 for receipt of currency, a belt 12 on the tray for transporting the currency from the tray to a point 13 where it is joined by another belt 14 for clamping the currency therebetween, and a take-up reel 15 for winding the belts 12, 14 and clamped currency for storage. The belts may be transparent and a sensing means 17 provided to sense the presence of each bill. Means may be provided for supplying change comprising the difference between the currency value and amount of the sale entered on the keyboard. The belt take-up reel 15 is located in the interior of the secured compartment 11, to which access is allowed only to authorized collection personnel.
