Another Reason NOT to use self adhesive 2x2 coin holders

October 27, 2008

I mentioned briefly in my post about 2x2 coin holders that the self adhesive 2x2 coin holders had a habit of coming 'unglued'. Well I read something today that should act as a warning to anyone keeping their coins long term in these holders. There's an interesting thread on the Australian Coin and Banknote forum (ACBO) about one of these holders coming unglued and the coin it held dropping on the floor when the holder was picked up. Net result? A big scratch on the coin and several hundreds of dollars in coin value being lost in just a few seconds just for want of not using a better coin holder.

*edit September 2012. The ACBO forum is now inactive. For coin and banknote discussion please visit the The Australian Coin Forum.
