Choose The Right Display Box for Your Coins
Guardhouse boxes are designed to work with coin capsules.
Each Guardhouse display box has one or more slots, which fit a SMALL( S ), MEDIUM( M ), LARGE( L ), or EXTRA LARGE( XL ) coin capsule. The sizes - S, M, L, and XL - refer both to the capsule size and the corresponding slot size in the box. Make sure to match the box slot size with the coin capsule size.
For example, a box with a ( 4S, M ) designation has five slots, four for a SMALL size ( 4S ) coin capsule and one for a MEDIUM sized ( M ) coin capsule.
When selecting a capsule to house your coin, select either a Direct Fit or a Ring Fit Coin Capsule. We recommend Direct Fit capsules for standard U.S. coin denominations, and Ring Fit capsules for everything else. Ring fit capsules require you to know the diameter of your coin in millimeters.
