How to Care for a Coin Collection

Many novice coin collectors may be surprised to learn that the seals they’re keeping their collections in could be doing more harm than good. When choosing a quality holder, it’s important to choose one that isn’t made from plastic, as this material will deteriorate over time and ruin the coins. Instead, collectors should look for paper casings to keep each coin safely sealed.

Another important thing to consider is where you store your collection in the home. Be sure to keep them out of damp or extremely cold environments such as a basement. To get more tips on caring for your coins, be sure to watch this video.
