I have spent a while thinking about and searching for the best ways to display and store my collection. I will use this thread to share what I’ve learnt. This is a work in progress and I will be adding more content regularly. Note: I have included some affiliate links in this post, these help support me to keep creating content like this.

Generally I like to keep everything in binders whenever possible. Binders make showing off you collection easy and come in a wide range of prices from basic cheap office style binders to more expensive fancy binders
Personally I like BCW’s binder, it is good quality and not too expensive.
I also have a couple of these too and they are also good for the price.
For displaying slabbed coins I use these Lighthouse album pages, they fit all common graded slabs (eg. ANACS and ICG) as well as DIY slabs like these. The Coin Cards that I make are also designed to fit into these pages.
The pages are designed for albums but I have used them on a shelf by themselves and they work great.
There are lots of cheap bulk storage options like a box like this.
If you want the highest level of protection for your coins Lighthouse makes a special product with “Intercept” technology that is designed to stop coins from tarnishing. Read more about this here. They use this in some of their boxes for slabbed coins.
I haven’t tried these but there are also wall mounted display cases like this.
And nice wooden display boxes like these, but they take up a lot of space.
The coins can then be put into pages like these
There are several companies that make pages suitable for storing/displaying notes. I use the lighthouse pages, but BCW also makes high quality pages. I prefer the lighthouse transparent pages because they are more rigid than the ones BCW makes. The 3 pocket pages fit all polymerbit notes.
Slabs - Good for display but take up a lot of space
