It will depend on what metal the coins (or the surface of the coins) are made of, Danny, but I think you will be able to tarnish them in a very hot oven or broiler easy enough. Tarnishes are generally oxides or sulfides, so you'll get fastest tarnishing in a wet or hot oxygen-rich or sulphur rich environment. So you should also be able to tarnish them by spritzing them with salt and vinegar.
