Hello all, I've only just recently started collecting circulated coins. I purchased the coin folders from the RAM but the damned coins just keep falling out. The folders are designed pretty poorly.

Am I doing something wrong ? Or can some one suggest some better folders ? Dnt want my coins falling out in storage haha

Hi Karabeep, do you have a photo or link to the folders that you are referring to?

I personally would use either coin capsules or 2x2 flips.

I hope the folders don't cost more than the coins....

With the type of folder that you have linked, depending on how tightly the size of the coin fits the corresponding jacket, there is always the likelihood that a coin(s) will fall out if given the opportunity.

Lighthouse do provide a storage system called Numis that stops this from happening by having an inner sleeve that the coins go into which in turn slides into an outer sleeve.

The downside I find though is that the sheets aren't standard size so they don't hold as many coins and the matching albums covers for them are quite expensive. You can do though as I have done and store the sleeves in a standard 3-ring folder.

I use saflips with sheets - the coins might fall out by the 2x2 saflip makes it unlikely.

The stuff that the mint sells might be PVC too which is bad for coins. I use stuff from https://www.thepurplepenny.com/coin...accessories/ which I assume is more expensive but is good stuff.
