Finding the Right Holder Starts With Size
The first step to organizing your U.S. and foreign coins is to know their sizes, so you'll know which coin holders fit your coins. That's why we created this handy coin holder guide to help you identify each coin's size. For convenience, all the coins are rendered in millimeters (mm).
Individual holders are a great way to protect your loose coins and paper currency while still organizing your collection. Learn more in this helpful article from Littleton's Heads & Tails blog.
Folder and Album Holders
Some of the most important supplies for coin collectors are folders and albums. These serve a dual purpose: First, they let you organize your collection by series. And second, they help you keep track of which coins or notes you have and which you still need. Equally important, albums and folders help protect your coins – even while you display them. Want to know more? Our Heads & Tails blog has a great article on modern album and folder design, which takes you through the time machine and includes the most spectacular "album" we've ever seen!
Hard-Shell and Tamper-Resistant Holders
More and more, grade-certified coins are collected in holders made of hard-shell, tamper-resistant plastic with labels that attest to their classification. You can learn more in this blog article on hard-shell plastic holders. You can even get custom boxes sized to these holders, including ones for our popular Showpaks that include mini story cards about each encapsulated coin!
