• 1 inch (25 mm): Holds most* ancient through modern coins up to the size of a current US quarter dollar,or a
Roman denarius. Each tray contains 33 recesses of this diameter.
• 1.25 inch (31 mm): Holds most* ancient through modern coins up to the size of a current US half dollar, or
Roman as or dupondius. Each tray contains 28 recesses of this diameter.
• 1.5 inch (38 mm): Holds most (see *) ancient through modern coins up to the size of a US silver dollar (see ** ), or
a Roman sestertius. Each tray contains 20 recesses of this diameter.
• 1.75 inch (44 mm) A brand new size offering. Recommended for US silver dollars, as this size allows more
"breathing room" for the coins than 1.5" recesses (see ** ). Each tray contains 16 recesses of this diameter.
• 2 inch (50 mm): Holds most (*) coins, tokens, or medals up to 2 inches in diameter. Each tray contains 14
recesses of this diameter. (This size available in green felt only.)
Exterior dimensions of a 12 tray standard sized cabinet are approximately 12"W x 10-1/2"D x 9"H. The 15 and 18
tray cabinets retain the same basic footprint (W x D), but are approximately 10-1/2" and 12" in height, respectively.
This size allows your cabinet to be conveniently displayed on a desk or bookshelf. Standard sized cabinets may fit
inside various models of safes readily available to homeowners (e.g., Sentry brand), many gun safes, or possibly
even a really large safe deposit box.
Standard size cabinets are available with either 12, 15, or 18 trays. Any combination of trays with the recess sizes
listed below can be ordered to equal the total tray capacity of your cabinet. Trays can be configured with any of the
following diameter recess configurations in either red or green felt:
I can also build custom cabinets with more than 18 trays, larger or thicker trays with any of the above recess sizes, or
with larger recesses of either 2-1/2" (63 mm) or 3" (75 mm) diameter and up to 1/2-inch (12 mm) deep, to hold
unusually thick items. Trays can also be configured as "open format" to allow display of items that don't conform to a
size that fits in a round recess. Cabinets can also be fitted with drawers to hold slabs. Examples of all these options
are shown on the GALLERY page. Or feel free to contact me to discuss your specific needs.
* The maximum item thickness a standard cabinet's recess can hold is approximately ¼ inch (6 mm)....slightly less for the 2"
diameter. Custom cabinets with thicker trays can accommodate items up to a full 1/2" (12 mm) thick.
** A Morgan or Peace style silver dollar just fits in a 1.5" recess, but may not allow enough room around the coin to easily
remove it. If displaying silver dollars is your main goal, I recommend either the 1.75" or 2" size recesses.
