fireproof box for coins and papers

Postby Joe100 » Mon Nov 21, 2016 11:23 pm

I am looking for a small storage box for coins and papers that would protect from fire. Any suggestions?

Hi Joe100,

I did search a few years back. One of the best that I found is:

Sentry Safe
Fire safe/Waterproof NOTE: a fire safes have different limitations. This one is good for it's size and cost.
Model H2300
approx 15" x 14 1/2" x 7 1/2" exterior and approx 12 3/4" x 9 1/2" x 5 1/4" inside.

It easily holds a large number of the 20 slot plastic sheets for 2 x 2 mounted coins or you can just put in loose notes and/or coins .

It is available at Staples.

When I bought mine they were $69.95 plus GST (no Prov Tax in Alberta). That was a few years back so they may have gone up a few dollars since then.

I looked at a number of different sizes, however for my purposes this was perfect. Naturally it is heavy but can be carried around if you need to do so. The bigger ones were too heavy to carry if loaded.

The smaller mini safes didn't have the same features.

Good luck

You can store part of your collection at your bank.

Or use diversion safes.

Don't know if that would protect from fire. :D
