Heh, I'm getting tempted! I think I'd better finish my next video off first, just in case I ruin the coin. :D

Its milled so I don''t so what harm you can do with any sort of cleaning as long as you don't over do it! (I think you will have to go a bit stronger than distilled water though!!!!)

Quick question, when you say zap, do you mean electrolysis?If so what do you use for silver as the electrolyte and electrode?

I assume everyone knows about cleaning silver with ali foil, soda crystals and boiling water. That would be my first port of call. :thumbsup:
