There are some nice coins around that come carded or on post office envelopes so I was wondering what do people do with them to display them? Would you be committing some sort of moral and economic sin if you were to free these coins and keep them in an album? Are there album pages that work for cards and envelopes?

I think I know what you are talking about but a picture would be of great help.
Describe it as if there were no picture.

Polarboy, I'm thinking this is kind of what you're talking about. This is one of my many (about 100) 'carded' coins that I'd love to add to my regular album (this one would be in my Canadian Quarter Album).

I too have just left them this way for now. I know if the time ever comes where these items need to go back on the market, it would most likely be much easier (and profitable) to still have them 'carded'.
I'm also looking for comments/feedback on this topic.

I would leave the coins in the original packaging - I have some in my collection as well; they are all in their original packaging.

I keep many of my cards (and similar packs) in full-page protector sheets that I place in a binder. They require a binder clip or two at the top to keep them closed and the coin folders from sliding out, but at leas it keeps the packages protected.

For the coin envelopes, check out pages for first day covers (FDCs) available from stamp dealers/suppliers - you should be able to find something that works.

Not sure if there are special album pages (I've seen some for regular mint sets but they are PVC so no good).

It depends what it is but I think taking it out of the packaging doesn't really destroy the value. I personally keep my coins in their packaging (though I have broken one PVC-encased set for the good of the coins) but I have bought coins broken out of sets.
