Thread: Storing Silver

    Default Storing Silver

    Ok, I got some silver coins, and sealed them in cling film followed by putting them in a sealable box. They were brand spanking shiny when I first got them. Now after about 3 weeks, they have black spots on some of them. What can I do to avoid this from happening. Is there anyway to clean it? Is it worth cleaning it or will that just decrease their value?

    Proper handling is a must for any metal prior to storage - acids / oils from your hands can badly degrade a lot of things over time. If these coins are very valuable, you should be using gloves.

    I've read about using some sort of wax or oil on metal surfaces, not sure about silver though ... sorry.
