How do all these people make fake coin toning? What chemicals do they use to make the coin tone? If anyone has a way of putting an artifical toning on the coin tell me please. Thanks everyone

One way I know of and have tried on some change is either putting it on a heat plate or in the flame of a gas stove.

I "heat treated" quite a few back during Desert Storm on the pot-bellied stove we had in out tent...to bad I don't know where they went...they were very "technicolored".

thanks guys... But I read a post today and he had a fake purple toning on an Indian cent. Did they use chemicals to make a reaction and cause toning?

Check out the recent post on AT coins. As noted there are many, many methods used to AT coins.
Many use heat such as in an over, or on top of a gas stove.
Some just place a coin or coins in the wet dirt.
Some use things like dish soaps, almost anything laying around the kitchen. Eggs are noted to do a job on toning coins. Match heads work OK too.

Water. I've seen some coins end up toned from being in a tip jar.

So why is there water in a tip jar? Or am I missing something. I thought a tip jar was on a counter for tips.

The surfaces of a cleaned coin are much more reactive than the surfaces of a coin that has normal wear so they will usually not develop a patina with a similar appearance, most especially with copper coins. A cleaned coin does not have to be treated in any special manner(heat, chemicals, etc) to develop funky toning. If a coin has been chemically cleaned though, residual cleaner left on the coin may also cause funky toning.

It's a fact that people tend to tip more when there is water in a tip jar. It reminds them of a wishing well where you throw coins in and make a wish before it hits the water. The simple addition of water in a jar is believed to be a psychological effect and has proven to work, especially at coffee shops and low end restaurants!

Maybe in Canada but around me if someone dumped water in a tip jar, the results could be something to remember.

It's probably not more tips, just less being stolen. Who would want to stick their hand in that gross water? Also, for the thief who doesn't care about germs, he would worry about being caught, what with the wet hand and all..

If all those reports about our currency having traces of Cocain on them, imagine the STUFF floating around on top of the water. Also, ever notice how many people spit on their fingers when pulling out bills from a waller. That too would be floating around in the water.
Now just what waitress would want to touch those?

Back to toning. Place some Garlic and Onions in your mouth, chew, then spit on those coins. If it doesn't tone the coins, next try getting close to someone and see how they tone from your breath.
