I started to post this in the "Numismatic Crime" forum. The text says it's safe and nonabrasive, but LOOK what it does to the poor coins!

Why does "Hamsters Park" not sound like a great place to shop for a sophisticated coin-cleaning product?

I'm not game to click on the link; my teeth are hurting just from reading the OP's title and brief description.

Definitely a Numismatic crime but might help some people that likes their coins shiny

Very true, but remember cleaning a coin can reduce the collectable value to zero, so that it's only worth melt or even face value.

But...but...but...as you can see in this picture from their own website...it makes coins "shinning bright just like a mirror!"

Why would anyone want their lower legs to be shining bright like a mirror?
