Before coin cleaning, keep in mind that most collectors agree, if you're in doubt about the value of your coin, don't clean it. Even dirty, you don't want to rub off valuable grime!

For general coin cleaning, soak in olive oil or warm sudsy water for several days. Use a nonabrasive cleaner if soaking doesn't work. Rinse with clean water and blot dry with a soft cloth.


After cleaning coins, don't use paper products such as tissue or paper towels to dry as they contain wood fibers which may scratch soft metal.
