I got mine there (French site):

Looks like they only deliver within France, right?


I checked, they are in fact british! (Enveloppes "France", sure... Smile ).
If they can ship to France, I'll bet they can ship to the rest of Europe as well.


I just checked that. They only deliver to France, Réunion, Monaco, Luxembourg and Belgium.

It seems their "real" site (not country-specific) is http://www.envelopes.org/

Oh they have it country specific. Thank you so much for your help! They are pretty cheap there and very close to the manila envelopes in the USA. I hope this also helped many others as well, who had the same problem like me.

The envelopes you bought in the US are not the same as coin Manila envelopes sold in the UK. The US version is much better quality and is an orange colour.

UK envelopes are a muddy brown colour and are inherently dull. I know, I live there!

Amazon carries #6, #3, and I believe also #1

They don't ship to Europe though. I also looked at Walmart, because on their website they also sell these coin envelopes, but when I've asked a staff, they told me it's an online product only.


They do indeed ship to Europe, at least to Norway and my address
I have been buying from them for many years

I know that, but if I order them from the USA, the shipping is even more than the envelopes itself. I wonder why they are so unpoplar in Europe. What are they mainly used for in the USA? Really just to keep coins inside?

I ordered 500 manilla envelopes from Amazon UK on 8th September and they arrived today.

They are Quality Park No.3 coin envelopes made of sturdy 28lb stock with the all important "orangey" colour. They cost £17 including delivery from the US and, at around 3.5 pence an envelope, are definitely worth it. Wife finding it a bit sad that a grown man can be so excited over 500 small envelopes, though she will be happy to know that I will now be able to break the habit of having to go into every new stationary shop I come across in the blind hope that they will have something nicer than the "muddy brown and inherently dull" that I have been using for years.

Cool, thanks for the update. I'm glad you're satisfied with the envelopes, not to mention relieved that I didn't inadvertently lead you into to making a dodgy purchase!

I too bought the above-mentioned envelopes (http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B000Y4X6E4/ref=ox_sc_sfl_title_1?ie=UTF8&psc=1&smid=A2KVF7QXNCLV8H) a while ago and can attest to the quality. I never thought to share on the Café despite my troubles finding them as well.

You can get the same envelopes in bigger and smaller sizes too:

2.25 * 3.5 in: https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B000Y50ZD8/r......b9MVJ6VG
3.125 * 5.5 in (#5): https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B0007UQCUU/r......bS07Y9NY
3.375 * 6in (#6): https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B0012VIB0C/r......bYWTZQTD
3.5 x 6.5 in (#7): https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B000LGLBP6/r......bXA625EK

Worth noting that the price fluctuates based on the dollar as these are direct from the Amazon U.S. store but because Amazon now has their own delivery network they don't charge you as much for P&H so the cost comes WAY down as opposed to sending the same item via UPS or equivalent.
