I realize that writing a post about a coin collection display sounds a bit nerdy, but it actually makes for a great decorating accessory. When I was in college (go wildcats!) I spent 2 summers backpacking around Europe. I wanted to collect a souvenir from each country I went to, but was limited on cash and space to carry them in my backpack. Coins were the perfect solution.
Once I entered the professional arena, I continued to travel and collect more coins. I searched for a good coin collection display solution and found an antique typeset drawer which met my needs. I did not want to damage the coins when affixing them to the display case so I used Mr. Mole’s Sticky Wax. It has worked surprisingly well.
I really love the way it looks on my living room wall and it makes for a great conversation piece. I have run out of space for my newest coins, so it is time for a second display case. Do you collect coins? How do you display them?
