    Maybe I should try cola first, because that is the only thing I have in my apartment right now.

    Vomit works just fine, the acid in your stomach has a pH value of 1.
    The downside is that vomit smells really bad and making yourself puke is not alot of fun.

    You can also wash them with pure white vinegar and rinse it with bottled (or just really clean) water afterwards.

    The problem with acid is that it will tarnsih your coins over time, if you plan to clean them only once it's not dangerous but if you plan to keep them and clean them again when they are dirty I advise you not to use strong acids.

    To find the best treatment, you have to know which metal or alloy the coins are made of.

    It depends on the year. If they are over 60+ years old they're pretty pure, but any sooner and the alloy starts getting cheap. It is possible to disolve more recent coins in ketchup and cola with in 3-5 hours (depending on your brand). I would suggest finding a coin collectors site and asking them.

    I mean they are all recent coins, but the fact is I don't think anyone's gonna take my coins at the condition they are in now

    yeah, if you soak in Hydroflouric Acid, that should work. Just make sure you don't do it for too long and please be safe about it.

    Yeah, if you get Hydrofluoric Acid on yourself, it will get absorbed through the skin, then it will demineralize your bones. It will also etch glass. It's better to use cola or vinager...
