Cleaning Silver Coins

I was going through my grandmothers old predecimal coins, and noticed many of the silver coins could do with a clean. Does anyone have any tips for cleaning silver coins? I do not want to ruin them as they are important to me…but at the same time they could really do with some love…

Thanks

dont clean - you will destry.

Plain and simpel I could write a LOT but no dont

Have you ever tried a pure baking soda? It always works for me when cleaning my silver and gold coins before putting them on the display shelf.

Before attempting to clean any rare coin, contact the American Numismatic Association:
http://www.money.org. They will determine how to care for your specific coin.
