Military coins can be displayed, organized, and protected if you place them in a coin display case. The case should allow other people to inspect the features of the coins.
1. Dome display case
This case has a transparent glass or plastic encasement that has a rounded top. It’s placed on top of a circular, wooden stand.
2. Rotating display case
This case has a rotating pin at the bottom. The rotating pin is attached to the stand of the display. The display has an indented centre where the coin is secured in place. You can rotate the case to the left or right. Only the front part of the coin can be viewed.
3. Wood display case
This square case is mounted on a stand. The indented centre of the display is where the coin is placed. You can only view the front portion of the coin.
4. Drawer display case
This case has two or more drawers that have a velvet base. Each coin is laid separately on the velvet base. To display the coins, just pull out the drawers. If you want to store the coins, just push the drawers back in their original positions.
5. Flip case
This plastic case contains 1-2 pockets. You can place the coin in one pocket and insert the coin’s description in the other pocket. You can also replace the description with another coin if you want to.
6. Ring type air-tight case
This case contains a foam that has a hole in the centre. The hole is where the coin is held in place. The foam prevents the coin from moving, especially if the case is big for the coin. The case has a snap-on cover to keep air and dust from reaching the coin.
7. Plexiglass presentation box
This box is a portable display case that’s manufactured from synthetic plastic. It can redirect the sun’s ultraviolet rays when it’s treated. It doesn’t break, but it turns to yellow overtime. The yellow colour can be prevented if the box is treated with an anti-yellowing chemical. The plexiglass presentation box is more lighter than the other presentation boxes.
8. Glass presentation box
This box is a portable display case. Military coins won’t be exposed to direct sunlight if the glass of the box is coated with special filters. The glass is usually manufactured from SiO2 (silica). The coins’ colour and structure won’t be changed by the glass. You have to be careful when carrying the glass presentation box because it may break.
9. Air-tight case
This case doesn’t contain a foam, but its size keeps the coin in place. The coin is snugly fit in the case. To close the case, you have to snap together the bottom and the cover.
10. Slotted display case
This case has slots that are arranged in columns and rows. Each slot is reserved for each coin. You can also place several coins in each slot if the slots are too big for one coin.
11. Wooden presentation box
This box is a display case that’s portable. Its base, sides, and frames are manufactured from mahogany. It doesn’t cause the military coins to fade over time because it lacks resins and harmful oils. It may be covered in special coating to further protect the coins.
12. Display case with photo
This case allows you to lay the military coins near photos. You may also replace the photos with coin descriptions. The case usually has a velvet background.
13. Cube display case
This case has an encasement that’s manufactured from transparent plastic or glass. You can see the coins through the encasement’s walls and top.
14. Display table
The table is a case that has a special cardboard or velvet. The coins are laid on the velvet or special cardboard. The coins are arranged in columns and rows. The walls and the top of the display table are made of glass.
The display case should let other people determine which organizations the military coins represent.
