Do you have a large collection of coins but do not know how to properly store them? Then read on and learn the many ways of storing coins, along with their pros and cons.
Step 1: 2"X2" S
One of the most popular types of coin storage is a 2"X2" cardboard container lined with clear mylar. The coin is placed on the mylar, and the case is folded and stapled shut. With this method, the coin will not slide around in its case while handled.
Pros: Inexpensive, easy to label, compact.
Cons: Coin may be scratched by staples, the plastic in close proximity to the coin can possibly contribute to toning and spotting.
