How to Care for Your Rare Coins Before Selling

Rare Coins:

Rare Coins Before you even decide to sell your rare coins, you will need to ensure they're in good condition. It’s normal for people to hold coins between their thumb and finger. But for rare coins, this should be avoided at all costs. Caring for your rare coins the proper way will help protect them from wear and tear. And should the time come you finally sell them, you're more likely to get handsome prices.

Slide 3:

For beginner coin collectors, take note of the rare coin care tips listed below.

Make Sure your Hands are Clean:

Make Sure your Hands are Clean Make it a habit to wash your hands before holding your rare coins. Oils, dirt, sweat, and acids on your hands can be transferred to the coins and react with the metal. Also, when fingerprints are left on the coin, removing them will only expose your coins to more damages. You may not see these damages instantly but they will show up after a few years.

Hold Rare Coins on their Edges:

Hold Rare C oins on their Edges Under circulated coins should always be held properly. Instead of pressing them in between your thumb and index finger, hold them instead on the edges. This way, you're less likely to transfer dirt or substances on the surfaces of the coin. In case someone would like to view or touch your rare coins, educate them first on proper coin handling.

Use Protective Coin Holders:

Use P rotective C oin Holders Protective holders keep your coins covered. They serve as protection should you or anyone drop your coins. The surfaces and edges of the coin will not incur damages or stains.

View Coin Collection over Soft Surfaces:

View Coin Collection over Soft Surfaces Practice laying a thick, soft fabric on the surface where the coins will be viewed. Should the coin drop, you can be confident they won't suffer from damages from falling onto a hard surface. Consider covering your floor in carpet too so coins are protected from dents or scratches even if you drop them. And don't drag or roll your coins even if the surfaces are already covered in soft fabric.

Invest in Cotton Gloves:

Invest in Cotton Gloves You can also use cotton gloves when touching your coins to keep your skin from coming in direct contact with them. Minimizing the coin's exposure from oil and other elements will protect it from tarnishing and discoloration. This is also one convenient way to examine or show off your rare coin collection. Even if the coin slips from your fingers, you can still catch it with your palm minus the worries of transferring dirt.

Wear Face Masks:

Wear Face Masks This is not necessary but if you want additional protection for your rare coins, then face masks are worth investing for. If you see yourself talking a lot when around guests, the face mask will keep your rare coins protected from moisture coming from your breath or saliva. Consider handing out cotton gloves and face masks too especially if you're letting others hold or view your rare coins up close.

Always Keep Food and Drinks Away:

Always Keep Food and Drinks Away You don't want your rare coins to acquire dirt or spots from food stains or spills. Do not eat or drink when examining your coins. Ask your guests or family as well to do the same.

Never Polish or Clean your Coins:

Never Polish or Clean your Coins This may sound ironic but you're only compromising the condition of your rare coins when you clean them. It's understandable to want your coins to remain shiny. However, if you'll polish them with cloth or use cleaners on them, chances are this will only cause damages. The best thing to do is talk to professional rare coin dealers so they can advise you on the best way to clean your coins.
