Clean Your Wheat Pennies With A Rock Tumbler

Many coin collectors find their treasures using a metal detector.  Coins that are found in the ground, especially wheat pennies that have been there for many years, are going to be very dirty.

Or maybe you just want to brighten up your dingy old wheat pennies to make them look better.

Cleaning your wheat pennies with a rock tumbler can make a huge difference. From personal experience we have seen unrecognizable pennies go into the tumbler and come out very clean and readable!

Items Needed:

  • Rock Tumbler
  • Rocks (get the smallest bag of the smallest aquarium rocks you can find)
  • Water
  • Dish Washing Liquid

Steps: (make sure to read and understand the directions for your specific tumbler)

  • Fill each tumbler with about 1/4 to 1/2 cup of the aquarium rocks
  • Add enough wheat pennies so that the tumbler is about 1/2 full
  • Cover with water
  • Add a small squirt of dish washing liquid

Depending on how dirty your coins are, you may need to run the tumbler for 2 hours or longer and you also may need to change the water every couple of hours and add more dish washing liquid.

NOTE: Never mix your pennies with your silver coins.  The silver coins will turn a pinkish color from the pennies.  That's why we recommend a dual drum rock tumbler.

NOTE: ALWAYS USE CAUTION WHEN ATTEMPTING TO CLEAN ANY OF YOUR COLLECTIBLE COINS!
