I love coins. I think they're super pretty and shiny and wonderful and ....

I have no idea what to do with them though. So I have this collection of coins that just sit around most of the time (a small percentage of the time I take the out and admire them and put them back in the packet I keep them in).

Give me ideas for what to do with my coins to display them prettily!

    Get a leprechaun kettle and start filling it up.

  • We have an Ingress Coin chat if you're interested. There’s plenty of people in there that would love to have that coversation with you. :)

    get a pogs tube.

    bring to anomaly.

    coincheck everyone


  • Pogs. Those were the good ole days. Ingress coins could totally be slammers. I'd go with India coaster coin or one of those year 4 thickies.

  • OMG. Pogs. That is a blast from the past.

    A display case for your coins is probably your best bet.

    I like the pins for the same reason you likely like the coins, but they're easier to display since they go on my Ingress backpack. It's also a nice small talk center piece because sometimes people will ask about them.

  • I completely disagree with "a display case being your best bet". It's heavy, expensive, not easily to move and doesn't hold many coins. If you're planning to only collecting 20-50 coins, then sure, it'll work. Personally I use a double ring zippered binder with coin sleeves to house my unique coins.

    How in the world have we not talked poker?! My UCR coin is my card protector.

  • Maybe something made from fabric, with pockets the size of a coin, so you put them in and the fold the whole thing and be able to carry it with you

    I enjoy bringing at least one on trips with me as a good luck charm.

    When I go out to the bar, I like to take one with me for fiddling, playing coin games, or making bets.

    I switch out which get to come with me so they all get to see daylight and feel loved.

    No kidding. I'm a poker player too and have hosted many seedy poker nights. Never thought of using my coins as a card protector.

    I have a display stand — holds 20 or so coins and isn’t as bulky or inconvenient as a case. I won’t ever need more room but if I did I could get another one.

  • If one side of the coin is superior to the other, you could turn some of your favorites into wearable medals! All you need to to is get a medal ribbon and then hire a welder to attach it.

    You could also make them into a mobile (weld hooks/loops on or drill holes in coins).

    I've also seen a wire coin holder that looked like a vine, with the coins as leaves, that was wrapped around a lamp at the agent's house.

  • Well, that i one way to display them but it is a pretty non-reversible option though re: the medal conversion.

    That Vine thing though, sounds pretty cool, assuming its an indoor fixture though huh?

  • Speaking of coins... check out the new one by Chicago
