Coin flips are small plastic, Mylar or PVC pockets that fold in half and are designed to hold coins. They usually measure five centimetres when folded, but can be found in an array of other different dimensions. A dealer or collector will typically take a coin and put it in the pocket on one side of the flip, and use a small piece of card or paper known as an insert to put in the other pocket to help identify the coin. In addition to coin flips, coin rolls in Canada are also considered a good way to store your collection.
What Are The Advantages Of Using Coin Rolls?
The advantages of using coin rolls to store various coins in your collection include:
- Safe materials
- Relatively small size
Coin flips are typically made from plastic, Mylar or PVC as the standard materials. But, it needs to be said that it is probably for the best that you always try to get your hands on coin flips made exclusively from Mylar. This because PVC is a chemical used in plastic to make it soft and pliable. As such, it can sometimes leach out of the plastic and deposit itself onto the surface of your coins, causing irreparable damage. You can easily tell if a coin flip is made out of Mylar because it will be a stiffer plastic than those made with PVC.
Relatively Small Size
The fact that coin flips are relatively small in size is another advantage of theirs. It allows rows of coins to be stored in a 2 x 2 cardboard box that can hold between fifty and one hundred coins in their respective flips. This allows a collector or dealer to organize and reorganize their collection as it changes over time.
Another hugely important benefit that coin flips have over other types of coin holders has to do with the fact that the coin can be very easily removed from the coin flip. This allows you to avoid the distortion or glare caused by the plastic when inspecting the coin with a microscope or magnifying glass.
