    • My opinion is the original coin packaging, such as outer covers, the boxes, coa's etc are very important so yes, take good care of them. Over the years i have changed how i now store. This is down to having certain things happen, and storage space issues. I now remove all proofs from the boxes and store with the Bu/bullion items together. The coin boxes i wrap back up in clear plastic bags (so i can easily see and retrieve when i want) and stack them into those large cardboard archive-style boxes. Those are great, hold a vast amount of coin boxes yet still manageable weight to lift. Holes on the sides for lifting. Hinged lids. Label the front by year, or by mint, whatever suits. And you only need to store them in normal conditions like under a spare bed, back of wardrobe, etc. I used to leave the collector coins in their boxes but this became impractical for security. Also impractical when considering environment conditions for silver collectibles. These you would want to store in a space where you can control the conditions, such as you mention, and better to do this in a smaller better controllable space, which is what i do now. Also, what changed my mind about leaving some in their boxes is what i noticed with one series of proofs. These were proofs that came in very fancy heavily lacquered wood boxes. The first one i know had spent all its time in the box, for approx a year since issue. The second in the series had been stored out of the box. The first one developed cloudy white streaks across the mirror faces. The second coin is perfectly clear to this day, more than a year later. I eventually put this down to the box itself affecting the first coin, and the chemical vapours given off by the varnishes, and glues used to insert the nice velvet interiors. Those particular wood boxes did have a noticeable aroma when opening them, so i'm not saying all boxes in general will be the same or have any affect. But just be aware chemical vapours will effect silver. If you suspect a box manufacturer has gone a bit heavy on the glues, i would play on the side of caution if it's your ultimate decision to carry on keeping them in their original boxes.

    • I agree except the changing temps from the list might damage any packaging, but if coins I can’t see an issue
    • Nice idea for just coins, but I’m talking about keeping them intact in their presentation boxes
