This is my first instructable, so any feedback is welcomed and appreciated.
Several years ago, my father left a coin collection to my sister and myself. We discussed what to do with this collection and both agreed that we wanted to take a representative sampling of it and find a cool way to display it. I made it my mission to create something to do just that. I wanted to give it to her as a Christmas gift. I have since made several different versions of this display, including a type set, state quarters, Lincoln bicentennial pennies, and the Westward Journey nickels. Most of the photos are for the State Quarters display.
Step 1: - Tools and Supplies Needed
Pencil and Paper (Graph paper is very helpful)
Xacto knife or some other cutting tool
Computer / Printer
Display Board (I used a plaque from a local trophy shop)
2 sided adhesive (I also got this from my local trophy shop)
Adhesive Backed Printer Paper
Small Craft Wood Pieces
Air-Tite Plastic Coin Holders (I found these on Ebay)
