I enjoy setting up my albums with 2" x 2" and 2.5" x 2.5" for my raw coins and 9 pocket pages for my TPG and arranging them together by date.

It's more interesting to me to see coins that were issued together rather than one denomination or type.

as above said, put them into 2x2's and then into 20 pocket pages and in a binder so you can stare at them all day long :)

I put them in 2x2 like said above and then into album pages.
I sequence them chronologically and have a separate album for sixpence/shilling/florin/other.

I chuck the whole lot in the safe and try not to think about how many thousand bucks I just spent.

I think I like CoinOS style the best since there is a limited range to Australian coinage. Probably get anthor folder for the foriegn coins.

I haven't done this yet but planning to.

With today's inexpensive printing charges. I am going to take pictures of my coins and make an album. A nice high quality one. So if I ever want to show someone or have a look for myself, all I have to do is pick up a book. The hardware goes in the bank vault.

What dont understand is I find album with all these perdemcial coins and then they will put all these rubbish coins with them ... I dont mean fakes, I mean like 20 cent pieces or like 50 cent pieces, its bloody annoying in my eyes I mean yea sure these values my change, but come at least find good examples of aus 50 or 20 cent coins. I mean I feel it just cheapens the look of their great collection even if they arent worth much.
