Coin Collection Display

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?

    I adore this! I have a small, global coin collection as well. My father is a numismatic (coin collector), so I get it honestly. I have been looking for a way to display them, but didn’t like the idea of framing behind glass because then I can’t ‘look’ at them. Coins have two sides, right?! Thanks for this ingenious idea! Pinning now!

    Thanks Christine! I can’t wait to see what yours looks like. A good hit to keep it clean, is to use a can of air to dust it.
