COINTEST: Display Cointest

When I received the Carousel Horses, I thought I needed something to display them on, rather than put them into a binder. ATMouse has been a clever little muridae, and put togther a neat turned wood carousel. While the carousel was purpose-built, and very cute with a Mouse on the bottom, I thought it needed some bling. :)

 

Some may say I have wrecked a perfectly good Carousel :sad: ......but here it is:

Now for the cointest. I want to see how you display some or all of your coins.

 

The winner will receive an assortment of 3 coins:

 

* 2008 Compass Rose

* Chinese Fan

* JanGor Kitty

 

There will also be a booby prize for the worst way of displaying coins. :(

 

You have a week, and I shall decide the winner, because I like to practise despotism.

 

Enter as many times as you like for either of the prizes :)

It means I Can't find the display, do not have a display, would not know where to get a display, Last but not least do not know how to post a picture and only have 1 coin, (fortune favors the bold) the rest are in the field experiencing life in the fast lane. I do have a few different coins however that are for trade or leaving in caches, but no collection just the one that sits on my desk and reminds me to be bold and go for it when I am feeling timid, especially those FTFs where cachers meet and greet without and event.

The really special ones get better care:

WOW! Your display is fantastic!!!

 

Unfortunatelly, I do not have a lot of coins, so...I keep them in a wooden box from Lipton tea! :sad:

 

Actually, my complete collection of geocoins, pathtags, signature items, TB's, wooden nickels, casino chips, patches etc, can feet inside, and I have empty room too!!! :(

 

Here are 2 photos to see it! The photos were taken from my mobile! Sorry if....

I used to have my collection in a box of chocolates, but....:)

I am thinking to put them in zelatines and pages like my coin collection, but some shaped ones....???

 

I am changing baxes, according to the number of the cons and other stuff I have! So... :)

I actually have been storing the few I have on the drivers side floor of my car...

 

I was thinking, since my collection is getting pretty big (about 4-6) I might upgrade to placing them in a zip lock bag on the floor...

 

Evidently from this posting, I have some major upgrades that I could look into.

 

I like the cardboard box idea!

 

I will take a picture and post it here soon.

Am I the only one who puts the "keeper" geocoins/wooden nickels/sig items on display in the living room?

 

In a cabinet?

WOW! I would hate to dust all of those! LOL! We do have some displayed around the house (not just on Brenda's ears)...some in binders...and some fall into the disorganized display category (ie: in various boxes and baskets around the house).

Display??? Who needs a stinking display. Mine are all over the house. If I store them too close together they mate like rabbits... and then I have them all over the house again. It is a never ending battle. I do occasionally "round em up" using my "coin herding kitty" and then I sit on the floor doing a "Liz"... oh my precious you really needed polished today...... :P

 

Love ya Liz!!!!

BUT WHICH ONE IS YOUR FAVORITE.

 

It looks like a unique retirement plan. LOL My kids would die to play with all those coin. The few coins I have keep going to school with the kids for show and tell or get slipped into one of the daycare kids pockets to show a Grandma. Your display would be torture for them to just look at and I would have drool all over the glass.

One?

 

Getoutta here.

 

I've been collecting coins for over three years now.

 

I take them out and admire them, remember folks I've traded with, places I've been, gifts that were given.

(I'm such an easy person to buy Christmas and birthday gifts for!!!)

 

These are not just bits of metal...these are memories, art, tokens of esteem and friendship.

 

Of course I display them. And the door of the cabinet opens so easy....

Beautiful!! I just looked over these a few times...don't see any of our coins in there?? When I get a chance....

I love the curio cabinet! My wife wont let me display my coins like that. Says I already have enough stuff on display (40+ model cars I have built, 53 dragon figures, 75 shot glasses, 6 West Coast Choppers minis, Transformers - too many, 200+ matchbox cars). She says the coins would probably get lost or I would never dust them. I dust....when something accidentally gets moved...lol. So I have to keep all my coins in a binder.

I would love to finish the small hanging curio my father started to make a long time ago and never got to finish before he passed away. We dont have much on the walls around here so I think it would look nice with my coins in it.

But at least with them being in the binder, they are portable and I can grab them at any moment and go.

There are some amazing collections in some pretty amazing displays in this thread!!

 

Then there's mine:

The boxes were free, as I saved them from the recycling bin at work after setting up our blade server -- every friggin' part came in its own little box!

I was going to take a picture of my cardboard storage box and try for the booby prize, but E&Cplus3 beat me to it. We even have the same coin on the top of the pile (the BCGA coin). I'm not worried about displaying them because I'm not a collector. I intend to release mine. Soon. Now excuse me while I go check my eBay bid to see if it's still winning.

Where do people get those nice little clear plastic (I assume) individual coin rests? I need some of those!!

 

I'd post a picture of my display but I also use coin albums so it's not very unique.

 

"Coin stands" on ebay ~ they come in big and small. I mostly use the smalls but the very large and odd-shaped coins need the bigger ones. Sometime I even use the bigger ones flipped upside down if it fits better that way.
