Hi,

I am fairly new to the Canadian Coin Collecting scene and was wondering if people would be willing to show off their collections so I could maybe get some ideas for how I want to store/display my collection? Or if no pictures explain how they do it?

Thanks,

Brett

I've always thought it would be great to have a systematic way to do this. The registry sets thing at PCGS is great but it's also sort of limited to PCGS-graded coins. It would be terrific to be able to post photos of as much as one wants to share. Graded and ungraded, or graded by various organizations and have discussions about what people are collecting and why. Discussions about the strengths and weaknesses of various coins could be hugely educational and it might draw more people into the hobby who are until 50....the internet generation and all that.

Which doesn't answer @bgl379475's question - just thinking out loud.

I have Whitman albums for Canadian Dollars. I don't have that many in the 1935 to 1952 Volume 1, but I have gotten quite far with Volume two 1953 to 1967.

Many people have shown their collections a number of times. using the search feature should turn up any number of them. The dansco 7070 type set is a popular one. I don't know if they make a similar album for Canadian types.

Thanks to all for the pictures and advice. I know Canadian coins are different in diameter than US which makes it harder to find supplies. It would appear the Lighthouse albums may be the way to go. As I am not seeing many other options.
