Hi does any of you know if the Vintage POTF coins fit into the new 30th anniversary album for the Hasbro Coins ?

I really need some kind of album for my Vintage POFT coins.

I'm looking around myself for something so I can let you know if I turn up anything that will work well . I was thinking the US silver dollar coin book , but those are slightly smaller than the POTF coins . I had originally bought the modern coin book thinking they would fit too , but they just fall out . So far the best thing I have come up with is one of the plastic sleeve albums that will hold larger coins , kind of like the sleeves that will hold trading cards , but coin size , but I haven't picked one up yet to try it out .

something like this http://www.wizardcoinsupply.com/product/he-harris-mini-coin-album-80-pocket.html

Thanks, let me know if you find something. It could be cool if there was something like the hasbro album so it could stand open and you could watch all the coins at the same time Very Happy

There is no American currency that is the same size as a POTF coin. Most people use a binder with universal insert pages. like so, http://www.centercoin.com/coin_supplies/heavy_duty_vinyl_pages.htm

If youre looking for something a little more classy, try and find a doubloon album. They are about the same size a potf coin. They arent the easiest thing to find as they are usally custom made.

There's a pretty interesting display idea shown here. Some of the sites that sell airtite holders have some binders and things like that for storing which might be a good option too.

Thanks for the great suggestions.

I was more thinking about something like this, but it should something that normal collectors can afford to buy.

There is nothing commercially made like the Executive Set(worst auction ever) you linked. If you want something like that you’ve got to make it yourself or have it custom made. They are not that hard to make. I’ve made two, myself. I would sell you one of mine but shipping it to Denmark would cost five times what you could make one for.

If you want something manufactured try looking for casino chip displays. There are all kinds of different designs out there just a google away.

Yes, it really looks great. Just what I was looking for, how much does it cost ?
