Gold Coin Treasure Chest

To the left is a picture of a gold treasure chest. Today's article is just for fun. While all of my articles are fun, today's is a bit out there, but a fun and exciting concept worth sharing. I recently purchased a treasure chest from my local arts and crafts Jo-Ann store. While I keep all of my expensive gold coins in my safe deposit box, I thought this would be a super way to store some of my silver art bars and rounds, copper bullion bars, and wheat pennies that I like to keep at home. Overall, really happy with my treasure chest and I'll spend today's article discussing my personal experience.

Collecting Coins Is Fun - Have More Fun With A Treasure Chest

While gold, silver, copper, and metal bullion is an investment at the end of the day for me, I also look at this investment as a fun hobby. I thoroughly enjoy collecting a diverse array of coins. What a great way to learn about history, spend time, and invest wisely (rather than wasting my money on paper assets). To make the hobby that much more fun, why not buy a treasure chest? After all, we're collecting treasure anyway!

Buy A Sturdy Treasure Chest For Your Coin Collection

Coins are heavy! Once you start accumulating a lot of wheat pennies, silver coins and bars, and bullion ingots (such as copper, brass, bronze, aluminum, stainless steel, and nickel bullion), you will have a lot of weight on your hands. Side note: The very weight of the metals alone tells you that you are dealing with real money and not fake fiat money. Moral of the story: If your treasure chest is not sturdy, it may cave in due to all the weight. I was careful in the store to make sure my treasure chest was sturdy enough to hold the weight of my growing collection. Also, if your collection is particularly substantial, you may wish to purchase a few smaller treasure chests to distribute the weight.

How To Store Your Coin Collection Within Your Treasure Chest

This is a super point in my opinion! While gold is very easy to maintain, the purpose of my treasure chest is not to store my gold which is safely stored away in my safe deposit box. Rather, I'm storing metals such as copper and silver which tarnish very easily. Consequently, I picked up some high quality air tight food containers at my local Longs. Within my treasure chest, I have a few air tight containers filled with my coins and bullion bars. I recommend doing the same to keep you silver and copper from tarnishing which is very easy. As a side note, I always handle my silver and copper with white gloves that I purchased from Jetco.

Enjoy Your Treasure Chest - Just A Fun Idea

To close out, we're in a bad economy right now. Times are tough. Why not make a fun hobby even more fun with a coin treasure chest? It's a cheap way to have even more fun with your hobby. Have a son or daughter who enjoys collecting coins? This is a perfect gift idea for them too. What a neat way to bring a bit of fun to their lives!
