Lighthouse do have coin capsules for most sized coins. The problem is that you have to buy them in bulk. Some years ago, I added a nice FDC gold 1937 George V1 5 pound piece to my collection, which I received from Spinks in London. Because it was a single, and unprotected, an acrylic capsule was appropriate for it's protection. I headed for one of the main dealers in Sydney and procured the right sized capsule for my coin. That cost me 50 cents.
It is common for proof sets that have encapsulated coins to be sold as individual coins by the dealer. While I was at it, I also bought a box for holding a single coin, that fitted the capsule, so that my 5 pound piece is now encapsulated and housed in a plush metal box with plush leatherette finish. The total cost was 3 dollars.
