A. If you want to process coins in a wet system, you do not want to use abrasive ceramic media. That is used for metal removal. You need a non-abrasive media or porcelain. Any non-abrasive process is called burnishing or lapping. Almost any acidic chemical compound will produce good results, but should have a good inhibitor to prevent oxidation after processing and care should be taken in handling for the same reason. I prefer dry organic media treated with an aluminum polishing compound.

Q. I am using steel media in vibrator with local industrial shampoo.
After burnishing, the coin is rinsed in plain water, but some sticky layer of shampoo is not removed from silver coins.
So I want to know which detergent or powder we can use.
