When I first started coin collecting, I wanted a storage mechanism that would satisfy the following criteria. Keep the coins safe Allow easy transport to show off the coins Make it difficult for my relatives to reach the coins, since they'll reach into a coin flip and rub their hands all over a coin if they can Provide some context and history for each coin Allow easy admiration for both sides of the coin Store the tag with the coin Look professional I came up with the following The coin flip is taped onto a printed page, which is then placed inside a page protector. Initially, the text came from Wikipedia, but now I write my own for each coin. I can fit about 50 coins in an album. However, over time I've come to realize the following shortcomings. Only about 5-10% of people bother to read any of the stories. They're just looking for cool coins. As seen here, the coin sometimes winds up in front of another coin in the same place, which looks ugly. I've tried placing the coin in different spots, but I still wind up with quite a few like this. Due to the tape, I can't access the coin if I want to. I'm quickly taking up space. I have four albums now and I originally told my wife that my coins won't take up much room. After a bit of thought, I'm thinking to do this. This has the following improvements. Four coins per page, so I take a quarter of the room. Pages will be alternated, so the next page will have the coins on the other side. I still have the stories if someone really wants with the QR code. Electrical tape is easier to remove, so I can take out the coin if I really want So far, the major disadvantage I see is I can't move the coins around as much. That being said, I'm fine with that. I'll just take care to group them around similar coins as I did here. What do you think? I'm debating whether to change the rest of my collection to this.
