I wanted to see if people display there collections or store them away. I have mine stored away right now but thinking of either displaying them in a case or for complete collections (ie. 2013 superman set) frame them up with supporting items (ie. catalog from the mint and stamp set)

Thought and love to see some pics.

Both.

My collection is in the safety deposit box, but anyone can see my collection through the PCGS Registry Sets and the Showcase sets. The showcase sets are really cool, because you can assemble just about anything together, as a collection, like I have done for the 1-cent special strikes that I love.

I have my Walkers and Franklin Danscos tucked away into my book collection but the rest of my collection is stored away in my safe.
You should always collect within your income, even if you have to borrow to do so.

I love this feature, but I wish you could add non-PCGS coins!

Check me out on eBay!

What collection as mentioned by TheDollarMan! And if anyone asks I just pull the old Jedi mind trick... "This is not the collection you are looking for"

I keep my collection close and under lock and key. This lets me pull them out and look at them every so often. I don't tell people that I have a collection though.

All of my good coins, and all gold or platinum coins (and palladium, too, if I had any), are stored away in safe deposit boxes, in multiple banks and multiple "cities".

Hidden. Only a couple of my immediate family members know that I collect.

I keep all my collection in my own personal safe, it isn't big but I am excellent at using small space to the maximum potential.
