Pelican Cases


Serendipity

Recommended Posts

How many stackers store their precious metals in pelican cases? I store my sovereigns and 1/4oz gold coins in a Peli 1010 Microcase. I bought mine from Atkinsons. The hard plastic protective cases are apparently waterproof, crushproof and dustproof. It’s a bit of a tight squeeze but my Peli 1010 Microcase can hold two air-tite “A” coin tubes. Alternatively, you can use three Royal Mint sovereign tubes. It’s worthwhile making sure the coin tubes are not stacked loose but are either padded out with spare coin capsules or stacked full because the case doesn’t stand upright.

I currently store mine in  in takeaway containers but have been looking at these as a better, all be it more expensive, solution. I have my capsuled sovs in Airtite  T tubes so would have to go up in size for those. They look very nice and rather more secure than my takeaway tubs!

Could you test by driving over them multiple time, please? 😉

The Pelican company also provide foam inserts to secure your tubes in place if you can’t find the right size cases. The foam inserts are available on Amazon. I’m always wary, of course, of companies that promise you crushproof products. I remember once buying an expensive stormproof umbrella with titanium rods from London’s Science Museum Shop. Damn umbrella barely lasted a month! I don’t know whether it was a crappy company or the English weather 😆

Yes, I am a big fan of Peli cases. I had some experience with Peli cases from using various pieces of equipment through the years and always appreciated them for the build quality and durability. Some months back (maybe even a year back) a member of the UKSS Facebook group posted a bunch of 1120's for sale at like £16 or £17 each so I snapped up a bunch. They are perfect for PM's... so durable and safe. The little ones are still pretty easy to hide away and can hold an impressive amount. I highly recommend them!

Does anybody know which case stores sovereign tubes and/or air-tite tubes upright as per picture below?

The 1500 case fits Britannia/Queens Beasts tubes perfectly (14 Beasts/25 Britannias max per tube)

I appreciate that a monsterbox fits the 20 tubes also but this one is air tight and has a comfortable rubber handle for 500oz of silver.

I'm not going to argue with you!

Not quite that bad😊...

Isn't the suppressor the most serious part of the kit (in the US)? Taking lots of hoops to jump through to register one?

Sounds 'nightmarish'? 😉

After seeing the stupid prices for these cases - I have decided to stick to monsterboxes lol. 
Am working out a way to convert a monsterbox into a better box - with the help of a rivet gun, some handles and locking clips. Hopefully if time allows, the experiment goes well...

I wouldn't pay full retail either. Curiously on eBay are more expensive than from Peli directly; still expensive

For this bit of kit, yes, the suppressor purchase was the most involved taking upwards of a year for NFA tax stamp approvals. All preceded by the paperwork submission which includes photos, fingerprints and background check.
