The numismatic hobby – collecting coins and/or paper money – can be both fun and rewarding. And one of the greatest joys comes from sharing your collection with family and friends.
Showing the coins and notes you’ve collected provides endless opportunities to reminisce about the past… learn about historical people and events… even ponder what the future will bring.
But as your collection grows, sharing it with others can become harder to do.
It’s easy to feel like you can only show off your collection when people come to your home. However, bringing it with you when you travel isn’t as hard as you might think. Here are a few ways Littleton Coin Company helps you collect on the go…
Littleton Custom Albums and Folders
Coin collecting becomes easier when you store your coins in Littleton’s custom albums and folders. With individual spaces for each coin, they help you organize, store and display your collection.
They also make it easy to take your collection with you.
Want to show off your Morgan silver dollars as you talk about infamous Wild West outlaws? Or maybe help your grandchildren learn about our nation, by sharing your Statehood or National Park quarter collection?
No problem. Simply bring your Littleton custom albums or folders along when you visit!
Portable presentation cases
Of course, many people who enjoy coin collecting have coins they don’t keep in albums or folders. But that doesn’t mean you have to leave them behind. Littleton also carries a number of portable presentation cases.
One case that’s especially helpful is the Lighthouse Deluxe.
This attractive case is made of sturdy aluminum and has a durable handle. The lid is heavily padded to prevent slippage. And inside, handsome velour lining beautifully showcases each of your coins.
It holds up to twelve 2″ x 2″ trays, or up to six certified coin trays. Plus, it locks securely to protect your collection.
Don’t forget your magnifier and gloves…
When traveling with your coin collection, always bring a magnifier. It will not only help you – and those you show your collection to – better appreciate the details on your coins and notes. It also comes in handy when checking your change to see if you’ve scored any exciting finds.
If you don’t already have a good magnifier that’s easy to carry, you’ll find a nice assortment to choose from in Littleton’s online store.
Also, remember to make sure you protect your coins when they’re being handled. We recommend these soft cotton-knit gloves, which Littleton employees use every day. They’re comfortable, absorbent and super affordable.
