Coin Albums

Many numismatists with a sense of satisfaction recall the old days when, when they were engaged in collecting coins, they could buy albums for coins in almost any store in the country, which over time filled with new and new copies. As for the present, it is quite difficult to buy really good coin albums. This is due to the fact that in stores more and more fakes appear that quickly deteriorate and tear. In general, coin collectors believe that the best albums for coins are albums in which at least two hundred coins are placed, since, firstly, it saves the problem of storing such albums, and secondly, it saves money that can be spent on same purchase of coins. In addition, the album should be of high quality, be durable and have a beautiful appearance, so that each time you use or view it, you should feel additional joy and spiritual satisfaction.

There are also quite interesting albums for coins, which besides all the listed properties, have attractive appearance, and most importantly, they are devoted to certain events and commemorative coins that were issued for this occasion. A great example is the coin series, which was released this year especially for the bicentennial war of 1812. Remarkable is that the album has already collected coins dedicated to this memorable event, and you can simply admire these specimens by purchasing a series for a relatively small amount. In addition, this album will be a great gift for any collector-numismatist, such as his anniversary, birthday, or on the occasion of any other celebration.

Many of the collectors are independently engaged in the creation of albums for coins. This is really a very good step, as you can choose, or come up with a design, emboss, decorate the pages to your liking, and so on. However, such work can be done only by those who have at least some reason. Those who have no such experience can order the production of an album for coins from masters who, for reasonable payment, will turn all your wishes into the real thing. Here you can choose the material, and design, and the number of pages in the album, and at the same time and estimate how much it will cost you. Such an album will cost about four thousand rubles, which you will agree, there is not so much for manual work.

And finally, I would like to tell you that it does not matter which album you use for coins, because you don’t collect albums, but coins, but with this, if you really love your coins, then provide them with a beautiful place in your collection, because all of them are your hobby, something that you can be proud of in front of people and other collectors-numismatists who quite possibly have not yet reached such heights as you, and maybe never will …
