Coin Tubes are a very economic option for long-term protection and storage of large quantities of coins. Coin Tubes will not scratch or rub off on coins. Coin Tubes are not air-tight and will not protect coins from the elements, rust, corrosion, or tarnishing. Coin Tubes are primarily designed for storage of large collections of coins. They are not appropriate for the displaying of coins.
Coin Tubes are available for most U.S. coins and are available in the traditional Round format and the virtually unbreakable Square format. The round tubes are manufactured by H.E. Harris and are crafted from inert, archival grade polystyrene and polypropylene. The square tubes are manufactured in the U.S.A. by Coin Safe and Numis and are crafted from inert, white, archival grade plastic.
