There is an old school method for carrying a wallet where the man stuffs a big hunk of junk in their back pocket and continues with their day.
For many decades, this is how most men carried their wallets.
Unfortunately, by the end of the day, many were left with sore backs; that is unless a pickpocket managed to snag it first.

Not to mention the fact that coins easily fall out of your pocket whenever you engage in some high energy activities, or even just sit on the ground.
So what can you do about your coins?
