The other week I ordered a couple of coin folders that were ideal for my non-precious metal coins. The first folder has 50p's inserted, which although a bit tit to get in, it's ideal for them. There's ten pages in each book.

These are from wish.com and were only a couple of quid each. Ended up opting for the red folders as they were cheaper than a blue or green one. Cheap & cheerful but ideal storage.

The coins aren't mint condition, just straight out of the pocket and tills. 

Just how long would it take for pvc to damage a coin and what would be expected to happen?

I believe the plastic forms acid as it breaks down, appears as a sticky residue on the coin to start with. 

It's not overnight we are talking years, faster if exposed to sunlight that break apart the bonds in the plastic.

I wouldn't worry too much about the pvc , my old man gave me his collection of hundreds of coins that had been stored in pvc flips for over 40 years and there was only one or two that had reacted   and they were easily cleaned in some dip. Saying that it's not much more expensive to buy a album that is non reactive.
