Does it really sit that flat with 100 Tokens? Do you think you could close it all the way with 150? I'm considering getting a few.


I filled it up and took 2 more pics so you can get a better view.

The pic where it is obviously popped open is all 10 pages filled for 150 tokens.
The pic where it is very slightly popped open is 8 pages filled at 120 tokens.
So, you'd probably want to stay at 7-8 pages filled (105-120) tokens otherwise you might risk the pages ripping from the spine if it's forced to close all the way. It is meant for normal coins (quarters) and not tokens.

But for $11 it has been awesome. I have 2 (myself & wife) which I've had for at least 3 years and we've loved it. Now if I could find someone who could make this same thing with a personal cover I'd be really happy. Maybe I'll try looking on Etsy and see if anyone can modify it so the cover is cooler looking.


Thanks appreciate the pics!!

I bought these glossy vinyl sticker sheets from Amazon, made this design and stuck it on the front. Looks pretty cool. My work printer didn't like the vinyl stock so there are a few imperfections. I'll take it to Staples and see if they can do any better.


Wow that's really cool!! Can you send a link to the vinyl sticker sheets you used?

How do you like it? Any issues? The reason I wanted a Whitman binder is because it's smaller than the binders Trent sells.

Also, looks like 41mm pages are sold out everywhere.



I like it, I had a problem of lost token and nothing ever comes out of this. Downside is finding inserts in stock, I bought a ton when I found some a few years ago.

Damn that's super nice. What program did you use to create the graphic in?? I have ZERO artistic capabilities.

I found the main image on the internet, did the rest in Photoshop. I can make something for you, just tell me what you want.

How much did it cost you to get printed at Staples and did you have to supply your own paper?

I supplied my own paper. I bought glossy vinyl sticker sheets on Amazon just for this project. 15 sheets came out to around $8. Staples only charged around $0.80 per print, pretty cheap. So, the whole project cost me around $22, and I have 13 sheets left for the next token album.
