How do I Store & Protect my Coin Collection?

Written by Juliana Chard – Numismatist • Last updated 23 May 2019

Have you ever thought about protecting your coins by purchasing capsules or buying presentation cases to make a unique gift that extra bit special?

Most bullion coins are issued purely for the precious metal content; gold, silver, platinum and palladium. To be able to offer such a low premium over the intrinsic value, mints tend to issue coins without any protective packaging, unlike the proof and collectable coins. 

Coin Capsules

If you are purchasing a bullion coin, the likelihood is that it will not be issued in a coin capsule. If you would like to purchase a capsule for your coin, click on the sizes below. If any coins are missing on the list, contact us on 01253 343081 and we will be happy to help.
