I just checked and I am using Kangaro munix too (blue colored box). I think in office we use max or Kangaro (green colored box) and the quality is little better.

I would rely on something like this:

Just a word of caution, (stuff I read when I first started storage in flips) if you store your coin holders stacked in a box -  stapled holders could scratch coins stacked next to them when you are putting them in or during removal.

Mayank, do those pins require a particular kind of stapler?

Ashwin,

For how long have you been using Kangaro munix? Did you use the same pins on the above posted rusted holders?  ;D ;D The following listing says that Kangaro pins have Electrogalvinzed coating that ensures high rust resistance (could be a marketing gimmick).

Joseph,

Dont know whether they are only compatible with Ace staplers but you may check out their entire range. I am sure this brand would be easily available in your nearest Walmart or any other good stationery shop.

In the last few months I've been using these and transferred the bulk of my coins to holders... So far none of them have rusted... The older rusted pins... No idea which ones those were

I'll still stick to self adhesive holders though. :) Their look is much better than all other options already discussed...

........on staple vs adhesive, i'd go for adhesive too....but not feasible for time and other factors for my needs....else I'd be all for it

I do agree and would have preferred the self adhesive ones but I had to staple the self adhesive ones when I tried fitting the Mughal and IPS coins in them............

I too never staple coin holders but self adhesive coin holders are not easily (and cheaply) available here so i take a mid way.

I simply glue the ordinary coin holder using rubber based adhesive Fevibond, it also helps in making them airtight.

Bond is very strong and using this i can even fit sultanate n thick coins (like kushan, Humayun's Bahloli etc) in 27 mm coin holder.

I have few British £5 crowns in self sealing holders (they weigh more than 25 grams) and didn't have any problem. May be the thickness of IPS coins is the cause of the problem..very much possible.

I tried that too, but without any success. You have to be very careful and patient (which I'm not :P) while doing that..I tried that with couple of cheap coins I had to see how it works but left trying after spending two hours without any result. :(

Yes, we have to be patient and careful :).
After applying the glue (only rubber based) i leave the same for 3 minutes (for drying) before pressing them together.

I still prefer Stapling to Sealing.
However, I use a Flat Clinch Stapler for stapling.
One great advantage of stapling is that, you can remove the staple and take out the coin, and again staple it.

I learnt a very bad lesson with such glue on holders for not cheap coins....

Ansari's method works perfectly, but only in combination with albums. I have used it for many years, having problems only when I changed glue. Over a long period, my glued cartons split apart again, but by that time, the coins fits the holder so perfectly the coin doesn't even want t fall out :)

My preferred glue is hard and white, not liquid, but in the past, I have also used liquid glue. Today, I use self-adhesives. Leave them outside an album and they come apart also.

I bought a great stapler for Rs 50... :P  i prefer spending my money on coins rather than a stapler....
I would like to buy the Bull Anna series.

I will also buy single coins of this series.

Please message me with your price and an image of the coin/coins.

@ Dheer - Although the Flat Clinch Stapler is made in India by Kangaroo, I could not find it anywhere. So, I got it from Singapore during my last visit.

I agree, many good staplers are available for Rs. 50. BUT they are ordinary and not Flat Clinch. The staple would be rounded at the back, and it is a real problem to keep the 2X2 holders in an Album Pocket with the rounded staples at the back. If you want to put the holders in Pockets, then either you have to press down the staples with  pliers to make them flat, or better to use a Flat Clinch stapler to have flat staples at the back.
