I have a large jewellers safe(think fridge size) and it's located in a garage that doesn't have temperature control. I'm in Toronto and was wondering if anyone knew if I would be risking the condition of my coins if I decided to store them in it.

Appreciate any feedback...and moving the safe or renovating the garage isn't an option.

heat and humidity, are some of a coins worst enemy, for keeping them in mint states.. if the garage is going to experience big temperature swings, you will be risking the condition of your coins.. I would advise against it.

Definitely do at least this.
Humidity is more of an enemy than temperature.
Describe it as if there were no picture.

Safe storage of any kind is not to good.

The problem with this is those eventually fill and are no longer any good. I've done that in a gun case and forgot to check and they eventually filled and spilled all over the bottom of the place. Worse than if not used at all. If you use those you have to remember to change them a lot. And remember the air you have in that case will stay there until you reopen the thing. You should really find a place in your house for any valuables.
