Coin cleaning supplies and coin preservation supplies, like coin tools, are an essential component to any serious numismatist’s coin collection. Need to know how to clean coins? To properly clean your coins of contaminants like oil, tape, PVC or grease, start first by washing your own hands carefully. Use a suitable coin cleaner and pat the cleaned coin gently (never rub) with a soft cloth. Don’t store your coins again until they are absolutely dry.
Coin preservation, like all coin protectors, starts by keeping moisture away from the surface of your coins. A metal vapor block exposes your coins to an odorless vapor that provides unique corrosion protection. An alternative would be silica or clay desiccant that absorbs the moisture in the air to keep your coins dry and secure. Silica desiccant can be reactivated by heating in an oven to dry out the silica for nearly unlimited uses. As always, you can feel safe shopping at Coin Supply Planet because we want your coin collection to sparkle and flourish as much as you do, and we carry the numismatic supplies you need to make it happen.
