    Ideas on displaying coins

    I'd like to display my favorite coins with my Antique bottle/soda collection, but I'd like them to be a little secure. Im hoping this would be the right place to start this thread. Any thoughts? It's not like I have $100,000 coins but I'd like them to be behind glass or something. Ideas? Thanks.

    If you're wanting to go super DIY, buy a picture frame with the sliding cardboard backing. Use a junk coin and an exacto razor knife to cut holes. Place coin, then tape a new backing over the hole.

    Depending on your craftsmanship, you could make a really nice custom setup for any combination of any denomination of coin.

    Just lay them on your front porch. It will save you the cost of a door or window when someone comes to "admire" your collection.

    The first thing I thought of was to put the coins in coin pendant holders, shorten the chain, or use a ribbon and hang the coins from a few of the bottles. That was before I got to the part where you wanted them under glass.

    Do you like albums do display your coins? What kind of coins we talking about?

    One of the cooler displays I seen here was a guy who placed his finds under the glass of a table he made, if anyone knows what I'm talking about maybe they can post the link to it.

    I agree with Henry's idea. My neighbors have a coffee table similar to this one, which I believe is what you are talking about. Meybe the coins could be under the glass, and then the bottles are placed on the table? Hope this helps. I actually have a bottle and coin collection, and I might do this myself.Click image for larger version.
