By Paul Rasmussen Subscribe to RSS | May 22nd 2012 | Views:

The coin collecting hobby has always been regarded as the “hobby of the kings”. Since the beginning of time the privileged class has indulged in the leisure of collecting coins and has painstakingly tried to keep their collection safe and intact. In today’s world coin collecting is still considered a royal hobby but thankfully there are several easy options available to store the coins in a secure manner.

Coin folders

These are folders specially designed to safely store and display the coin collection. They are available in a vast array of designs which differ on the basis of the number of ports, size of the pockets and the cover. One must always select the coin folders which have the correct size of pockets to accommodate your particular denomination of coin. Also the cover should be sturdy enough to face the testing of time. There are various brands offering several types of folders. The top three makers of coin folders are Littleton, Whitman and HE Harris. Among them, Whitman is famous for its versatile make which even beginners can use with great ease. Their informative extra pages pages also make them a favourite with the novice who begins their collection with a selected few coins. Another important benefit rendered by this storage method is the utmost convenience of display. With a good folder you can display your entire collection at the same time because they can be unfolded till the last fold without any hassles in between. When folded, the size of the folder is just the size of any other book making it easy for you to store them.

Coin albums

The albums to store coins are just like any other album with the only difference being in their pockets which are carefully designed to hold coins. The coins are covered with a protective layer which ensures prevention from rough handling. There are several companies which have been manufacturing supreme quality coin albums for decades. The popular ones include Dansco, Whitman and Littleton. Each one of them is the best in their industry and their speciality lies in crafting the cover of the album in such a way that besides providing the customary protection it also imparts a rich look. For increased durability, some albums are embossed in gold and an optional leatherette binder can be purchased which prevents the signs of wear or tear for years to come.

Besides these two popular storing options there are several other modes of safe keeping your precious collection like coin holders, coin tubes, coin slabs, etc. You can easily procure these accessories from various online stores which are specially catering to the requisites of the people addicted to this hobby of kings.
