Euro Albums

Postby brismike » Thu 23 Aug 2012, 03:45

Hi Everyone - I have a question. What is the way that you guys store your Euro Collections? Especially if you are attempting to collect every coin from every country for every year?

Do you use those plastic Euro Sleeves that allow 3 plastic sleeves of 8 Coins to be placed in 1 plastic page,and then stored in ring binder album?

I think that the Numis version is called NH24 as per the one shown on this link

hi mike
some years ago i bought these euro sheets from numis to store many unc euro coins sets i had
but after one -two years the coins begin to loose the shine and even worst, got some strange colors in the surface
one main problem is these sheets is not suitable for unc coins cause they are not airtight and the air can go inside.
also if you put many sets inside the weight of the album is very heavy and not suitable for transport or presentation.

Hello Mike,

For me the best solution are capsules, but expensive.
Another solution, are the coin holders self-adhesive, less expensive and perfectly adapted.

What it is necessary to avoid, it is to store these coins in a plastic packaging (humidity = oxidation).
Here is how I collect my BU by Vatican.

Best regards, Indy

i agree indy the best solution is the capsules,
with coin holders self-adhesive if you want to store them for long period, you have periodically to replace them with new-ones cause the glue won't stay for ever.

I use 2 staples in addition to the glue and coins from 2002 are still OK.
