Someone should start a "toned coin only" PCI.

Didn't you know there is a toned coin forum? Not sure of the exact name but it is a forum dedicated to toned coins. Myself, I'm a coin collector and when ever I get a toned coin, into a cleaning solution it goes. Sorry about that to the toned people but I just think coins should look the way they did when they came from the mint.

I understand not liking colourful toned coins, but why do you want to make a coin look like the way it did when it left the mint? For older coins 100 years+ that just isn't natural, unless they are gold. If I see a coin that isn't unc and has no toning on it, then it just screams cleaned to me, if a coin is worn, it means it has been out and about so naturally it should have acquired toning of some sort.

 

If you had a nice antique table would you sand it down to make it look new?

 

Sorry Carl I'm not having a go its just I have never managed to understand the "blast white" phenomenon.

My thoughts precisely, although I can understand not liking artificial toning.

So guys let me in on how you make these tone? I mean, the first dollars have beautiful toning and they just aren't that old. You have a technique to make these tone faster? Let me in on it... ;)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

While there are many coin doctors out there turning these ASE's into crazy wild toners

there are many natural toned Silver Eagles that are truly beautiful.

 

I imagine that since these are .999 silver they will tone quicker and more than Morgans or Peace dollars.

But, this is only my opinion :ninja:

 

Maybe that would explain why the Mexican Onza's tone so strongly as well.

Na, its one that is in my 7070 type set, maybe MS64

Its much prettier in hand

Here's one of my toned Indians. I like the spectacular colors of yours, but the subtle tones of this one are also very appealing to me:

Your kidding of course. I thought everyone knew about the TCforum. It's for toned coins only.

 

No actually. Seems like most of the winning submissions in our "Popular Coin Idol" contests are toned coins. I think toning is a polarizing enough topic that it would merit two divisions in PCI contests. Heavily toned coins only in one division and untoned/white coins in another.

 

Kinda like Men's basketball leagues vs. Women's b-ball leagues! :ninja: (PLEASE Someone build on that analogy!)

In laymans terms, Can sombody explain the process of toning, and when it starts and stops (ie, if I have a very slighty toned coin will it continue to tone?)
