If you collect coins, you know how grimy these coins can get. If you get them direct before being circulated, they are pristine. Finding a random collectible in your change or buying them off sites like eBay is a different story however. All those years in circulation, being handled (the natural oils on the human skin), and even being in storage can accumulate oils, dirt, and tarnish the coins.
Ultrasonic cleaning offers a very effective cleaning method without damaging the coin, which is especially helpful if you are looking to resell the coins.
Now, we realize buying a piece of equipment to clean your coins is an added expensive, but trust us, it is worth it.
Gentle But Effective Cleaning: in many cases, these coins hold value that is 10 or even 100 times or more the face value of the coin, so you want to make sure the coin is not damaged when it is clean. Our cleaning methods uses cavitation to create microscopic bubbles that implode on the object to clean them, so there is no abrasive cleaning process that can damage the coin.
Detailed Cleaning: As you know, most coins are loaded with intricate designs and grooves that are very difficult to clean, which is what ultrasonic cleaning specializes in getting clean.
Chemical Free: Using chemicals, you can risk the integrity of the coin. Our cleaning solutions are water-based, and perfectly safe to use on collectibles such as this.
Extra Tips and Consideration
Now, while we trust our cleaners not to damage your coins during the cleaning process, for rare or very valuable coins, we would still recommend leaving that cleaning to a professional.
Before putting your coins into the tank, give them a quick rinse with distilled water to remove any loose debris from them.
Choosing the right cleaning solution is very important, so we always recommend speaking to a member of our team to ensure you have chosen the right cleaning product for your collection.
Once the coins are cleaned, remove them from the tank and give them another rinse with distilled water to ensure all of the cleaning solution is removed from the coins.
After the cleaning process is complete and the coins are dried, use gloves and store the coins in acid-free holders to maintain their new appearance and prevent future issues.
