According to the people at Money Clamp, their product is: “The World’s Only Money Clip That Works.” And while we, at Best Money Clip would have to disagree with this, we certainly wouldn’t disagree that the Money Clamp works very well. Their innovative (patented) clamping mechanism makes the money clip simple to use and will keep your essential items safe, secure and organized.
Why choose a Money Clamp?
- Slim – doesn’t take up much room in the pocket
- Works well with a small or large amount of bills and cards
- Wallet part keeps cards separate and neatly organized
- Can be used with or without the wallet
We’ve put together a comparison of four different Money Clamps where you can compare specifications. These vary in size, weight, material and price but all of them have one thing in common, they use the same Money Clamp patented clamping mechanism.

Money Clamp Zurich Gunmetal with wallet
Robust and industrial looking, the Zurich version is the priciest model in the Money Clamp range. It seems somewhat appropriate that it’s named after Zurich, Europe’s most affluent city.
This Money Clamp comes supplied with with a black stamped Congo Croc Leather wallet and is shipped in a stylish black leather gift box.
Pros: Robust, made from Nickel-plated zinc alloy, good capacity
Cons: Heavier than the other Money Clamp models
Money Clamp Geneva with wallet
We included the Money Clamp Geneva in our Review of 5 of the Best Money Clips, on the homepage of the website.
The Geneva range is Money Clamp’s most popular and well known. It’s an excellent budget option and at around $35 represents excellent value.
One of the best things about Money Clamps is that they work equally well with the leather wallet in the middle or with bills only. This particular model includes a slim Cabretta Leather wallet (in black).
Pros: streamlined design, slim, light, good capacity
Cons: some owners have pointed out that with the edge of the clamp being close to the end of the card holder it can make it a bit tricky to open at times
Money Clamp Milan Gunmetal with wallet
The Milan Money Clamp in gunmetal is both sleek and sophisticated. It’s a little bit heavier but marginally lighter than the Geneva model.
The nickel-plated zinc alloy clamp comes with slim leather wallet, where you can store cards, receipts, photos and other important items.
Pros: streamlined design, slim, light, made from Nickel-plated zinc alloy, good capacity
Cons: Quite a bit more expensive than the Geneva range
Money Clamp Geneva Mini Mesh with wallet
At a fraction of the size and almost half the weight of the Geneva, the aptly named Geneva Mini performs just as well as the larger version.
Some people actually prefer the mini version due to the length / location of the edge of the clamp. With it not being as long certain users find it easier to unclamp than the standard Geneva version.
Like the Geneva, the Mini comes with slim Cabretta Leather wallet (in black).
Pros: smallest money clamp, slim, super light, good capacity, very good value
Cons: smaller clamp may be a bit trickier for somebody with unsteady hands to open
There’s something for everyone in the Money Clamp range. Both budget and higher end options use the same clamping mechanism but vary in size, weight, material and price. A lot of it is down to personal preference and taste. One thing that all of these models offer is versatility – they will perform equally well, with or without the wallet clamped in the middle.
