Hello! Thank you for using Just Answer. I am James, and I will be assisting you. As we work through your questions, think about this as a back and forth conversation. Once you've received the information you need, you can thank me by issuing me a positive rating of 3, 4, or 5 stars. This is the only way I get credit for doing my job, so please do not forget this before leaving the site.

ANSWER: You are allowed to carry the coin collection in your carry-on luggage, so long as the carry-on fits in the overhead bin or under the seat in front of you.

You should keep them with you in your carry-on, and not put them in your checked luggage so that you are sure they do not get lost. You may also ask for private screening if you'd rather maintain more security.

I hope that answers your questions. Please remember that I do not get credit for doing my job unless you give me a positive rating of 3, 4 or 5 stars or any of the smiling faces. So please do that for me. You can still ask more questions even after giving a rating.

Thank you!

Hi, global entry is different than tsa precheck. If you have global entry and paid the extra $15 to get tsa precheck also then you will have that. Global entry is used for international flights you are flying domestic. This would not make a difference either way as long as you keep them with you so nothing happens to them you will have no issues going through security. I am deeply sorry for your loss and wish you and your family a safe flight and healing ! Please let me know if you have further question and please not I am not the first expert that responded to you. Hopefully I have cleared any confusion up for you,
