Acrylic Coin slabs with an, inert white, flexible interior.
I have been looking for suitable hard cases for my coin collection for years and have finally found these. They are of a similar type used by the major coin certification companies. I have tested many types for suitability over the years and these are the best I have found.
They measure approximately 85mm x 60mm x 10mm and have a shallow depression for adding a catalogue card on the inside of approximately 42mm x 20mm.
There will be a future blog post on coin sizes/suitability, but for now here is a quick reference for UK coins;

These should come up as free UK postage, but occasionally the system misses this. If it does, don't worry, the postage will be refunded.
Please note: Coins not included, they are just for the pictures.
Thank you for looking.
P.S. These are the sizes I am keeping in stock, but if there are other coins sizes you are looking for, please let me know and I will see what I can do.
