Coin capsules

Recommended Posts

I am going to be getting some silver  britannias, I am thinking of buying coin capsules for them. I like the idea of protecting the coins. A few questions:

1. Can coin capsules themselves damage the coin in any way? (Milk spotting etc)

2. What are the best brands to buy? 

3. Where can I buy these cheap? 

Some google searches show 39mm ones for the britannias, some 40mm. Can someone please confirm which size is best.


P.S. Complete novice at the moment and new to the forum.

I must say that this is one of the most informative places for silver on the web.

Happy stacking!

For 2013 to present day you need 39mm diameter inner, 40mm for earlier coins that are Britannia silver alloy.

Genuine Air Tite H39  or premium ultra rimless Leuchturm ( GS.be were selling them but haven't checked today ) are the best quality and look great.
Otherwise if you are simply protecting the coin, any other brand ( much cheaper ) will suffice.

If you can get 25 Britannias, you can get them in a coin tube. Or you can get a spare coin tube (example) and fill it up over time.

Upside is it is easier to store, downside is the coins will not be protected when shown and handed around for presentation.
