The Best Wallets for Carrying Coins
Coins have a bit of a bad rep in the carry world – they dig into you when wedged in your pocket, they scratch your other carry items, and they announce your presence with a distinct clink-clink-clink that can get aggravating, fast. But perhaps it’s an unfair reputation. After all, in some places, like Europe and Japan, coins are a necessity, and in others they’re simply personal preferences rather than having to use a card or cash all the time. So maybe it’s simply a case of finding the right way to carry them. That’s why we’ve rounded up a selection of some of the best wallets to carry coins, with good looks, slim designs and functionality front and center…
