Gary, you remind me of my husband. He also collects the coins he accumulates every day, and puts them into a coin bank he received as a child. Once it's full, he puts them into the paper coin rolls, and sets them aside. By the time the cruise comes around, we have enough cash to cover tips for the three of us as well as a shore excursion or two. I don't think we've come close to your amount, though. Congrats!
