Default Zip-loc bags

Anyone have any thoughts on storing circulated coins in zip-loc bags? I've
been keeping mine in them but am wondering if I might be asking for PVC
contamination.

Thanks,

Ken

Any "baggie" used for food is made of Poyethylense, which is safe for
coins. PVC is prohibited for food use by the FDA, because if its
potential toxicity.

Not as safe as polyethylene.

Zip locks are not a good idea due to the PVC. Butch

If you mean loose coins, it's hard to beat a glass jar.

GLASS JARS!


Be careful with those. Remember, those jars were engineered to hold a lot less
weight than solid metal discs.
