I have heard you guys mention "Air Tite" coin holders, what exact product do you mean? I am thinking of purchasing a very pricey coin and I just need to get a single holder for that specific coin. So what Air Tite holders are we talking about here?

Are we talking about this?



Or this?

Air-Tite is a specific brand of capsule. Your second pic is of a flip (not air tight). This may help:

You can always think about having the coin slabbed. My preference is not to do that. That is just me.

1.
I prefer ex British Royal Mint hard acrylic plastic screw sealed capsules.
I get them from my LCS for 50 cents each.
The seal is far more positive than simple snap shut capsules.

For very valuable coins, I even use the ex British Royal Mint coin cases as well, and put the capsules in the felt lined case used for individual proof coins. The cases cost me a dollar each.
They were originally used for individual proof coins, or were for individually sealed coins in proof sets.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
2.
Nevertheless, snap sealed acrylic capsules are still useful. I occasionally use these as well, and if they are small enough, I put the encapsulated coin straight into a 20 pocket album page.
Sometimes, (if the capsule is small enough), I will put the capsule in a cardboard mylar 2x2 flip, before putting that into a 20 pocket album page.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
3.
Even simpler, I will put a valuable coin in a custom made flip, made by folding a piece of clear acetate sheet, recovered from food packaging, purchased at a supermarket. The coin goes into the flip that I have made, stapled and then put inside a standard 2x2 cardboard flip (as above), which is then put into a standard 20 pocket album page.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I have used ALL THREE methods quite successfully, and without any problems. My avatar coin (ancient Greek gold stater), is stored by the third method.

I'm going to use method 2, the snapped capsules, along with maybe storing them in a 2x2 so I can put them in my pocket binder. I will also use method 2, it just may take a bit for the order to ship the hard acrylic plastic screw sealed capsules.
