CLEANING ANCIENT ROMAN COINS GUIDE

There are many ways to clean ancient coins and there is no absolutely right way or wrong way, unless it damages you or the coin. The methods discussed below are safe and non-toxic. Other collectors may clean differently.

If using a sink, be sure to have a strainer in it so your coin does not go down the pipes only to be found by the Creature of the Black Lagoon. Word has it that he has quite the collection of wedding rings and ancient coins.

The Distilled Water Method of Cleaning Ancient Coins.

Steam Distilled Water Works Best. You can find it either in the drinking water section or the detergent section of your grocery store. In Milwaukee is is about 95 cents a gallon.

Pre-Cleaning:

1. Get a plastic basin and/or plastic colander (a bowl with small holes in it to let water strain out but not the items within it). Place the colander in the plastic basin. If you do not wish to use a colander then all of the following can be done in the basin.

2. Place coins into colander, and colander into basin, and put some liquid dish soap on top of the coins. Run some warm or hot tap water over the soapy coins until they are fully submerged. I usually turn the coins over a few times by hand just to make sure the hot soapy water makes full contact. Depending on my patience, I let stand for 5-30 minutes and then turn the coins over a few more times.. Next, I lift the colander out of the basin and run more tap water over the coins to completely rinse them of any residual detergent. Conduct a final rinse of the coins in Steam Distilled Water to ensure the tap water or detergent does not hang on and damage your coin.

Distilled Water Cleaning:

3. Some people use jars, I use plastic sandwich containers with lids for the next steps. Fill your container(s) with about .25 to .50 inches of distilled water and for best results set your coins flat within them without touching one another. I usually have at least .25 inch of water between my coins and the surface. If you have pets or farm animals, close or lid your containers. I also tape a small piece of paper with the date, the letters "DW" for steam distilled water, and the source of my coins. This labeling is optional. Set containers aside and try to think of something else. This is a good time to read up on ancient coins and/or check out new coin auctions. Come back the next day.

4. Next Day: Pull out your coins and go over them with a nylon or brass brush or a hard tooth brush to see how much dirt and crust you can get off. Some folks use a steel brush here, but I do not. If the water has dirtied up, has a lot of dirt particles in it, or is cloudy, then it is time to change it. Typically, I always change the water every 5-7 days regardless of how the water looks as the cleaning properties of the distilled water will usually be exhausted by that time. I jot on my label the date of the new distilled water.

5. Coins that have already cleaned up considerably should be moved to a new distilled water container. Leave the tougher coins together and check back with them and brush them again every few days. As more of these tough coins give in to the distilled water and your brushing move them to new containers. Over time, you will have a string of containers with coins in different stages of cleaning in them.

6. Continue to change out distilled water and brush. Some coins will clean up and possibly attribute in a few days, others will greet you next year with a mischievous grin and still daring you to give up.

7. Using party skewers (an oversized tooth pick), cotton swabs, and (only sometimes) dental tools, I then begin to work specific areas of the coin to try and get grime out of letters and tights spaces. Be mindful when using steel tools such as awls or dental picks, while you might get the grime out of those letters you may also gouge the letters out of the coins. Practice on expendable coins first. I now only very rarely will use steel tools. My hands are tremorous and I’ve gouged a few coins.

Drying Your Coins: Ancient coins are susceptible to Bronze Disease. After washing they should be completely dried. Some folks use hair dryers, some in the oven, and I have them by the heating vent. Electrolysis (another form of coin cleaning) will kill Bronze Disease.

Brushes: Nylon brushes are safe to use on coins. Brass brushes can make a lot of head way fast against crusty coins. Too much strength behind a brass brush can possibly scratch the coin. I will use steel tools on a coin but not a steel brush. A steel brush can quickly take the nose off a portrait! Imagine your nose under a steel brush, you get the picture. 

Some folks used toothbrushes with or without the bristles cut down by half. Cutting them down makes them stiffer. Some will use denture cleaning brushes.

You can get brushes either on an e-Bay search in "Coins" for "Brushes," or at a local hardware store. Some brave souls start with steel brushes. If your coin is silver or silvered (a silver glaze or wash of silver, but the core coin is not silver) be extra careful with a brass brush so as not to brush the silvering right off.

Usually every successful coin cleaned with steam distilled water has the mix ratio of 2 Parts Steam Distilled Water and 5 Parts Patience.
