    How do you store your ATB bullion?
    Does anyone offer a container that will hold 5 in their air-tites?

    try run a google search. think there was a website, or something similar that offered air-tites for a lot of different bullion types.

    I just collect the P's, so I leave them in the OGP and put them in the SDB.

    I can't remember right now what site I saw it on but I have seen ATB 5oz coin cases. Not sure if it's what you are looking for as I think it was for the collector version as it was a case that held 5.

    I finally found a good solution for this very problem earlier today, and quite by accident too!

    As krispy said, AirTite Z5 capsules are widely available for $1.50 each or so. Actually Apmex ship the bullion coins already in a Z5, so if that's your source then no extra expenditure is needed. But what to do with the Z5 capsules, or the Mint capsules that the "P" versions come in? Apmex make a wooden display box, and it's quite nicely done I might add, but with 5 coins to a display box and 56 coins in the series (112 if you're collecting both versions) that would require storing 12 or 24 display boxes! Sadly a non-starter for a safe deposit box or most home safes. I was poking around trying to find room to store the Glacier 5oz "P" coin that arrived this week, I noticed that the Intercept Shield box for Mint proof sets looked like Z5s might fit in them vertically. And whaddya know? They do!

    A single 13" x 6 7/8" box can store 3 rows of 15 Z5 capsules, plus (I think) another 8 or 10 in the space that remains. I don't have 56 of these coins yet to see if there's a trick to getting the remaining 1 - 3 coins to fit, but at worst you're looking at 2 boxes to store a set of 56, or 3 boxes to store a complete set of 112. This assumes that you don't mind storing the "P" versions' packaging in a closet or wherever, but it doesn't seem like a big deal to me. The really nice thing about this solution, apart from the space saved, is that you get the added benefit of the Intercept Shield protection. A full set of these is quite an investment and $20-30 to keep them safe from tarnishing seems well worth it to me.

    Many thanks to all that have responded. You've been a great help.

    Specifically, I'm looking for a container that will fit 5 pucks, in Z-5's,
    and a container that will fit 5 "P" pucks in OGP capsules.

    My intent is to make SDB storage easier.
