The A4 albums are different from any other product on the market and available exclusively from Coin Hunter.
The coin foam in the 50p album has round holes the perfect size for keeping your 50p coins fixed in place, just press any 50p into any of the 40 holes. The £2 album has holes cut to perfectly fit £2 coins.
There are no spaces set aside for any particular coin design, which gives you the freedom to organise your collection in any way you like.
The solid card and foam structure hold the weight of the coins securely, so albums can be stored upright.
The A4 albums are just 8mm thick, so will not take up much space at all. You could store multiple collections and duplicates, 10 albums would store 400 coins in just 8cm of shelf space. Perhaps add your own label the the outward facing edge of the album.
The Coin Hunter branding on a white background is deliberatley understated so albums look good stored side by side on a shelf.

The Royal Mint Olympic 50p album is no longer available and cannot be re-produced due to the expiry of the London 2012 product licence. The new Coin Hunter 50p album holds all 29 coins, plus it has space for the completor medallion (if you are lucky enough to have one) and 10 duplicates.
The Royal Mint has produced a number of coin albums to store your collection of circulation 50p, £1 and £2 coins. Including The Great British Coin Hunt £1 Coin Collector Album, £2 Coin Collector Album and the Olympic 50p Album.
Albums were created to encourage people to build a collection of circulation coins by joining The Great British Coin Hunt. Coin hunters checked their change for special coin designs to try and collect one of each of the coin designs in circulation.
Albums produced before 2017 were printed with marked slots for each coin, which meant that the album needed blank spaces for new coin designs or would soon be out of date. With new designs being added each year, it would seem that marked slots may be a thing as the past, with The Great British Coin Hunt £2 Album (Extended Version) created as a box holding 10 blank coin cards each with space for 6 coins.
The older style albums including the Olympic 50p Album have sold out and will no longer be produced by The Royal Mint. With the old round £1 coins now out of circulation, people are looking for a home for their £2 coins and 50p coins.
50 pence coins have become very popular with collectors since the 29 new coin designs created to mark the London 2012 Olympics entered circulation. The Great British Coin Hunt 50p album and The Royal Mint Olympic 50p album command high prices on eBay as there is still a high demand for a product that has been discontinued.
With new prices of about £5 per 50p collection book, it is no surprise that albums (although limited to 10 per customer) are now snapped up by eBay sellers looking to make a quick profit when the stock at The Royal Mint runs out.
The original albums were priced at or below the production costs and played a part in bringing the world of coin collecting to a wider audience.
The official Great British Coin Hunt albums and the London 2012 Olympic sports 50p album have long since sold out with many now appearing on eBay at much inflated prices. As with all Royal Mint products, production ends at a point in time which creates a thriving secondary marketplace.
These coin albums are not elegant or timeless but they do have The Royal Mint branding which is important to many collectors.
This £2 coin collection album issued as part of The Royal Mint's Great British Coin Hunt is also no longer available to buy new from The Royal Mint.
The same is true of the newer Collector's Edition versions for £2 and £1 coins and all albums created for individual commemorative 50p coins and the 2012 Olympic Sports Set.
With the current lack of available royal mint collectors albums it is no surprise that other coin collecting albums are being produced by companies such as Lighthouse, Cambridgeshire Coins and Crown Coins.
