Hi, you can buy dipping solutions and some people use chemicals like acetone to clean their coins but before you embark on cleaning you must be 100% sure that your coins do need cleaning as damage resulting in unnecessary or improper cleaning can wipe a large percentage of the value from a coin. I have a small page on my website devoted to coin cleaning which may help you.  www.coinwiki.co.uk

I will advice you to be very cautious about cleaning coins and to practice on coins with little or no value before trying it out on coins you want to keep. If you have any more questions just ask.

I hope I've been of some help Alastair
