Nice, have been thinking of how to display my own collection now that I am home and have them all in one place. How did you make the coins stay up?

Thanks. I routed a slot in the top of each level.
I did some practice in some scrap pine first with some of my coins. That was I was able to get just the right width (1/4”) and the right depth to have them stand upright with just a touch of lean back.

Yes practice is a beautiful thing. With children in the house I am thinking more of a cabinet to close and LOCK to keep prying hands OUT. When I was in Kuwait I saw one of these with mirror on the back to show the backs of the coins as well. So many ideas, and only one small spot to put one box on the wall…...

The mirror is a great idea!
