By Amanda Davis

A coin purse is a small bag that has a closure across the top that is meant to hold coins. Sometimes a coin purse is called a change purse. It was very popular and has lost some of it popularity over the years. It has become something of a relic. It may be that they movement toward using plastic has made the coin purse all but obsolete.

A popular style for it is leather with a snap type closure on the top. This kind is usually around two to three inches long and about three inches deep. There is usually some type of metal framing across the top and it is stitched up on three sides to form a pocket. A leather one can probably easily accommodate three or four dollars in loose change. A leather one can also be made from cloth as well. The cloth can be a host of materials from simple canvas to luxurious silk. It can also be made with embellishments like embroidered flowers or with rhinestones or beads. It can be very decorative and flamboyant. It can also be just a simple pocket with a closure across the top to carry coins.

It may have a zipper closure across the top or a Velcro closure across the top as well as the favored metal closure device at the top.
