Hi all,

I know they are not everyone's cup of tea, but I was hoping to find if anyone has found a decent storage option for the Reverse Proof sets from the mint. I'm thinking of something like:

but it's not tall enough. I'd rather not keep them in a shoebox any longer than I have to.

My OGP items are in a two different nice and heavy boxes. Everything fits okay for now, but I will run out room soon. I have no idea where to get something to match (I will have to ask the person who gave them to me).

The dollar store looks like a good place to start.

I'm with you there as these are an odd size and I intend on keeping them as issued. For now, I was fortunate enough to get a box from work measuring 12 long, 6 wide and 6 high. Almost perfect. Long term is another issue as I'm still in the design stage of a solid maple coin cabinet to house coins. Picture a chest of drawers three foot wide, two foot deep and six foot high, each drawer being four inches in height with holes bored the diameter of each Air-tite holder. I have yet to find a solution incorporating these and the many proof sets into the design. Maybe a second, smaller cabinet to match? I only threw this out there to give you an idea if you have the skill set.

Would it be a mistake to transfer reverse proof innovation dollars to snap tite 2x2's for easier storage?

Depends on if you want to be able to look at the OGP or preserve it. IIRC in order to remove the capsules from the OGP you have to damage the OGP. If you don't care about that I don't see anything wrong with it.

Home Depot has an Iris 3 gallon storage bin that would work, but there's other things you could use also.

Each of the packaging is
5"x5.5" maybe 1/4" thick. To store so you can read the edge, it's the 5" height x 5.5" width. Then whatever the length will dictate how many sets you can put in the box.

If you wanted to do double rows you'd need 5"H x 11"W and a little extra if you want to put a divider in there.

Also want to consider that all the cotainers are different and the box height might be 5" bUT not the interior space with the lid on so you'd want to account for that too.

I have mine laying flat in a cardboard box in stacks. I'm sure at some point someone will make a box specifically for these sets, maybe even the mint once they get to enough sets that a box to house them makes sense.

If you lay them flat I'd say you need a 5-6" width box by at least 11"Length, not ideal but it will get you by for now to hold 20 of the coins with packaging at least depending on the height of it in two stacks. I believe someone will come up with a storage box for that once they put out enough of them to have it make sense to have the inventory.

interesting. Do you want to favor cheap, durable, pretty?

I have to observe that a cd case is 5.5x5x0.4 inches. Anyone tried an old cd carrying case?

Amos Advantage... now that's a name I haven't heard in years.

Looking at their site, I notice it says "COVID-19 and how it Effects you" - should be "affects"
Currently interested in buying 1957 and earlier Russian and Soviet coins. Let me know if you have any and we can hook up a deal!

The Really Useful Box, 6.5 l size, internal dimensions of 15 1/4" D x 5 5/8" x 5 1/2" should work based on the dimensions given in the post. Office Depot carries them. Their item is 452306. The box was designed for CD Case Storage.

The Mint did that for the silver proof sets back in 1999, sold a nice if somewhat expensive box that would hold the entire 10 years of the State Quarter series. Then 3/4 of the way through the series they changed the size of the set and added an 11th year. Now the expensive boxes would no longer work.
