How can you maintain your coin collection?

We’re sure that your coin collection has a great personal and historical value. We’re also sure that you’ll do anything possible in order to keep your precious collection in the best shape possible, right? Well, if you are starting out collecting coins, and don’t exactly know how to take care of your collection, here are a few pointers to help you out!

First and foremost – don’t clean your coins! Yup. You heard us right. Cleaning your coins is not a good idea. You actually want to avoid even getting to the point where the coins are dirty, because frankly, coins, especially copper ones, just don't like liquids.

So you need to make sure that your coins will not get dirty and you should do so by keeping them in an album! Not your local Walmart $1.99 photography album of course. You need a special coin collection album made of quality plastic that is chemical free and will not damage your coins on the long run. There are many types of albums available and one of the most popular brands are the Dansco coin albums, which been around since 1937. Now that’s a name you can trust.

Once your coin finds its place in the album, you should never touch it again. I know. Heartbreaking. But your fingers are oily and can damage the coins. If you really must clean your coin collection, consider talking to a professional.
