We want our coasters to be coasters, not a coaster display

How should I make my collection of pub coasters waterproof?

I have a smallish collection (around 30-40) of pub coasters collected over several years, and would like to be able to use them for their intended purpose instead of keeping them in a photo binder. There are enough of them, and in particular enough in various wobbly/oblong nonstandard shapes that I think I'm looking for something to coat them in, rather than little coaster-shaped containers to purchase. (Maybe I'm wrong about this?)
So, what's clear and water resistant and can be painted onto cardboard? A wax-based product of some kind? Something else? Mod Podge was my first thought, but I'm concerned the water-solubility would make them liable to get sticky...
