I haven't used my coin sets in quite a while a found them rather tarnished. Whats the best and safest method of cleaning coins? i.e. Scotch and Soda, coin in bottle...

I just use a pencil eraser to rub 'em clean. I've found it works quite well. You can also buy that liquid tarnish remover stuff that you dip 'em in at your local supermarket.

Stick them in some lemon juice or vinegar for a few minutes and they will be nice new and shiny. I recently just learned that the more you use the coin and have your fingers rubbing it...the coin actually gets cleaner.

Brasso is what I clean all of my brass coins with, S&S etc... it works really really well. You can buy it in just about every super market/drug store, it's near the shoe poslish.
