How to clean coins

While many choose not to learn how to clean coins that they collect, for a myriad of reasons, there are many who do want to restore the coin to its original luster! For those who are searching for a safe, easy way to clean their coins, look no further. 

We want to offer tips for non-abrasive, water-based cleaning methods that will not reduce the value of your coin collection or ruin the precious coin.

Here is a guide for what to use to safely clean collectible coins!

Please keep in mind that you DO NOT want to use acid-based cleaners, tumblers, or other damaging cleaning materials. We recommend water-based cleaners (whether they are homemade or store bought), a microfiber cloth, and an eye for which coins require which treatment. 

Also consider that tap water often contains chlorine, which can have a harsh, negative effect on your coin. Use distilled water when mixing with materials such as baking soda or soap.
