Inexpensive Coin Collecting Storage

Keeping your coins in good condition doesn't mean you have to spend a fortune on containers. For some ideas on inexpensive coin collecting storage, read our list of suggestions.

Cigar box – A cigar box is a great inexpensive coin collecting storage piece. It lacks sophistication and is more cumbersome, but will safely keep your coins in one place.

Paper Envelope – The paper envelope is a storage option that is low cost, and allows you to create a filing system. You can find a 2x2 version at most coin dealer shops. For long-term storage, look for a sulfur free version.

2x2 Cardboard – These Mylar and cardboard pieces provide excellent long-term storage for your coins while allowing you to view them. Watch to make sure the Mylar remains intact in the cardboard and refrain from use in humid areas.

2x2 Vinyl – These vinyl storage pieces, also known as flips, come in a 2”x4” size and fold over to a compact 2”x2” size. While one side contains your coin, the other side provides a card for you to label your coin.
