Coin Tubes: Cheap & Safe Coin Storage

coin-tubes-photo-by-joshua.JPG Here’s an effective, safe, and cheap way to store a lot of coins: use coin tubes.

Coin tubes are plastic, (usually) chemically safe ways to protect many coins all in one compact area.

Coin tubes house a number of coins equivalent to quantities found in normal coin rolls. Here’s a breakdown of what most coin tubes hold:

  • 50 pennies
  • 40 nickels
  • 50 dimes
  • 40 quarters
  • 20 half dollars
  • 20 large-size dollar coins
  • 25 small-size dollar coins

Coin tubes cost anywhere from about 50 cents each up to $2.00 or so (based on the model and overall quality) and can be found at your local coin dealer. They can also be found on most online coin dealer websites.

My love for coins and numismatics began when I was 11 years old. I primarily collect and study U.S. coins produced during the 20th century. I'm a member of both the American Numismatic Association (ANA) and the Numismatic Literary Guild (NLG). I've also been studying meteorology and watching weather patterns for years. I enjoy sharing little-known facts and fun stuff about coins, weather, travel, health, food, and living green.
