What is the best way to clean old coins?

Answer

The best way to clean old coins is by not cleaning the coins at all as you can reduce the monetary value and they are worth more with the toning on them but you can try giving some coins careful washing with things such as warm water and mild detergent. But if you really need to clean, you can begin by washing your hands and then lay down a soft towel after which you set up your soapy bath. Then you can fill a second container with water that is distilled for the final rinse. You then dip the coin in the first soapy container and then in the second container you rinse it.
