Has anyone ever used this album? I have some World bullion coins in some of their Quadrum Intercept capsules and noticed that they have pages that can hold these. The album looks really nice and would be a big improvement over my simple three-ring binder I have now.

They need to be filled or have blank Styrofoam flats to keep them from collapsing inward and putting pressure on the spine attachments. They also need to be stored upright, rather than flat.

Other than those two requirements, they are beautiful and no more expensive than similar quality binders from a store.

As another option I might suggest D-ring 3" zipper binders. They insure you never lose a Coin from it slipping out and offer far more storage options at a much lower cost.

Buy them when the going back to school sales start.

Probably not much help, but I use Lighthouse Grande albums for all my paper money and find them just great.

It's a good album, you'll like it. As long as you're not buying dozens of them, and realize that you get about a third of your cost back when you sell the empty albums later on, you'll be fine.

I agree with pax; this is a solid, sturdy album; the quality is top-notch. And yes, you pay for quality.

And like Coinfrog I use them for paper money but they are VERY sturdy and I don't see there being any problem with the album standing up to the weight of coins. As long as the pages you use are quality, this will be an outstanding storage system for you.

Wizard lists a bunch of their 4-ring pages that fit the album including currency 2x2 and 2.5x2.5 pages. I would hope they are sturdy.

That's a nice looking album! Definitely making me consider buying one more.

One of my favorite things about this album is the way the front cover attaches/detaches from the rings (you can see the mechanism in my 3rd pic above) so that the album lays completely flat. All of the Lighthouse albums I have do this.

I received two of the standard albums for Christmas and have finally managed to take a photo of one of them. I put my US coins not in Dansco albums, currency and bullion coins in one and all my World coins in the other. Here are a few photos of the finished product.

They also make a slab page - 6 of them fill the large sized binder (3 in the thinner one). Each page is a fold-over semi-rigid two-piece clear plastic and holds 9 slabs.

The binders+pages add up to a semi-pricy option, but it's a fabulous presentation for a slabbed collection. On sale, binder+4 pages for $40...

These look great! How are they holding up, half a year later?
