Hey! So I have almost hit my milestone of 400 ounces of silver and 2 ounces of gold (starting to stack more gold)

I recently decided that since my cost/ounce of silver is under what spot price is, I have wiggle room with buying premium silver to allow me to collect coins that are more than just clunky metal.

I just purchased about 30-40 Government coins (2009-2019 Pandas, ASE, Libratads, about 10 CSM privys, Somalia, Caribbean, Elephant, Kangaroo, Koala ect). I also have 11 gold 1/10 coins that make me quiver when I see how they're displayed.

Can anyone share with me their display books or options for organizing these items? If I'm going to sit on 25 pounds of metal, I would like to make it look a bit nice!

The kid inside me says to buy/make a wooden chest with lots of hasps, latches, straps, and chains and unpackage all of your coins and bars and just throw them in haphazard.

There are a few album options in this thread: http://goccf.com/t/331184 -- my current album for silver rounds is this Lighthouse:

Working on: Peace dollars (two to go), US type (early Bust era), Indian quarter eagles, Chinese pandas, and San Francisco tokens.

We have seen some of those over the years. Here are a couple examples:

The second link in particular has multiple interesting versions.

Leuchtturm/Lighthouse albums or boxes to really do it up in style.
For bulk silver coins I use Pelican cases and empty monster boxes. Gold I keep secluded in secure storage.

I think it was a couple hundred bucks for my 5 tray Lighthouse case, but I've never regretted the cost once. It's just a beautiful way to enjoy your favorite coins. It's worth browsing the Lighthouse website for ideas.
