20 Challenge Coin Wood Display Box!

A popular size for challenge coins is 1.75 inches. This 20 piece wood display box is perfect for 1 3/4" challenge coins! Because the insets are 1 3/4" in diameter you will not need to use Air-Tite capsules with your 1.75" challenge coins.

NOTE: This box has 1 3/4" openings. Although it will hold challenge coins without a coin capsule it does require all other coins to be in an an Air-Tite size H or Guardhouse size LARGE capsule.

Choose The Correct Box For Your Coins


  • Measure your coin in millimeters - there are two ways
    • Use a website like or
      • Search for your coin specifications (note, especially in older coins, different years can be different sizes)
    • Use a ruler with a metric scale
      It's really pretty easy to read. The ruler is broken into big lines and little lines. Each big line is a centimeter (spaced about 3/8") and represents 10 millimeters (1cm = 10mm, 2cm = 20mm). Just go to the closest large line and then add the number of little line. For example, a silver dollar is 38mm (3 big lines + 8 little lines)
  • Find the correct coin capsule
    • Some coins are listed by coin type - cent capsule, nickel capsule, etc.
    • Some times you'll purchase by size - 19mm, 27mm, 39mm
      (note: size refers to coin size, not capsule size!)
    • Identify the capsule size - it is always listed in the capsule description
      For Guardhouse coin capsules they will be S, M, L or XL
      For Air-Tite coin capsules they will be, respectively, A, T, H or I
  • Use this box ONLY if your coin capsule is an Air-Tite Size H or Guardhouse Size L
    (or it is a 1.75" Challenge Coin with no coin capsule)

Will this hold encapsulated American Silver Eagles


YES BUT... the eagles must be in direct fit capsules.

There are two types of coin capsules - Ring Fit and Direct Fit.

Ring fit capsules have a black or white rubber ring that surrounds the coin and keeps it centered in the capsule. Because of the additional ring the overall capsule is a larger diameter (2") than the direct fit style. Air-Tite ring fit capsules for Silver Eagles are 'Model I'.

Direct fit capsules do not have the ring so the overall capsule size is smaller (1.75"). Air-Tite direct fit capsules for silver Eagles are 'model H'. The guardhouse equivalent is 'size L' If your encapsulated Silver Eagle looks like this you have have direct fit.
