Hello. I'm Brian Kuszmar with thecoinbroker.com. Let's talk a little bit about military coin holders, or particularly, military challenge coin holders. Coin holders, I guess you can make your own, or you could go online and look for particular coin holders that are made by companies. They can come in, probably, small groups where you could hold several coins or one coin. But, I'd imagine there's different ways that you could find military coin holders. Again, the best way to do would be check online. And I think you could also go and make your own. Go to one of the local craft shops, too. The only thing you want to avoid is actually gluing or fastening your coin permanently to anything that you can't remove it from without ruining your coin. So, if you do go the route of making your own coin holders, I would suggest using some kind of method that doesn't permanently attach the coin to whatever you're doing it with, where you could take it off easily and not change the surface of the coin in any way. Again, if you're looking for pre-made holders, I'd suggest checking online, because they're not very commonly found at most coin shops. Another way that you could store your military coins if you did not want to put them on permanent display for people to see, would be to go to a coin shop and buy individual little plastic holders. Two by twos, which they're commonly called. The come up to dollar sizes. However, they may not hold the larger of the coins. But, again, I would suggest checking with the coin shop if you're looking for holders for your military coins that don't require being put on public display. Something just to put in a box or your drawer.
