(I’m a sucker for Canadian coins.)
Dansco used to produce a Canadian Type Album. However, they haven't produced one since the 1980s, by my estimation.
A little bit off topic, but I think Dansco really should improve their website. IMO, they have a great product but not a visually pleasing or easy to navigate webpage. Also, the pictures of their products don't do the product justice.
Dansco, in the early 60s, produced an album for German Commemorative coins and German Colonial Coins. However, these albums are quite scarce, to put it mildly.
I've seen photos of the commemorative coins album. If I could find one I would try and buy it.
I haven’t seen one for sale in quite some time. If I recall correctly one sold on eBay in 2019 for about $340.
Yeah. I remember I saw one a year or so ago sell for several hundred.
Spain would be awesome, but what year would it start with?
I'm no expert on Spanish or Portuguese coins by any means, but I'd probably start with the decimalized Real starting in 1848. However, if that proved to be impractical, I'd probably start with the Escudo (1864-1868) or the Peseta (1868-2001) in addition to any Euro-type coins issued for general circulation.
Indeed! Though I think the original album was issued by Whitman for that one.
Only problem is usually the earlier coins are likely to have a scarce type coin which is easily in hundreds or thousands of dollars.
I propose in the following two series album for most countries: 1870s - 1945 (end of silver coinage). 1945 to present.
P.s. can design any albums given time and effort. Any companies wanting to sponsor - pm me

Kingdom of Hawaii (pre-US)
Lots of absolutely gorgeous designs, lots of variety, silver crowns, aluminum...
I don't really collect by using albums - I like @gxseries method of creating a digital album better (did one for my SBA dollar set) - but IMO this would be a very interesting type set for collectors to work on.
album that covers the different coins produced by the U.S. for
I would love a complete British colonial type set! Imagine: Canada, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Hong Kong, Mauritius, Straits Settlements, East Africa, West Africa, etc.
