Cardboard 2x2 Coin Holder Size Guide

Cardboard 2x2 Holder Staple Type
A lot of collectors use cardboard 2x2's for storing their coins. They come in two types either self adhesive or the staple type. Personally I have moved away from both kinds for a number of reasons to the more versatile Saflips but this article is to help those collectors and newbies determine the 2x2 sizes to purchase for each type of Australian coin.

The size suggestions below are just a guide and leave a small gap around each coin to allow for a comfortable fit of the coin in the holder and allow for you to view the edge of the coin. You can still of course use a slightly smaller size and you can always use a larger size to holder up the coins in your collection. The exception here is the suggested size for the 1937 and 1938 crown, the 39.5mm flip is the largest 2x2 size available. Again, these sizes are our experienced suggestions for use.
