    Looks great like gold but I can't get the shine in the picture. Is a natural or artificial toning? I took a picture with a coin of same age trying to show the difference between the two.

    Yellow is the beginning tone on a coin, this is easily replicated with a little heat.

    Could be natural. I have a 2007 Roosevelt that has slowly gotten more and more golden over the years, being stored in a Littleton folder.

    It's normal toning.

    The think is keeping the luster. In the picture don't show but shine like gold . Very nice looking. How I can preserve this coin to stay like this?

    You can keep the coin in an archival-safe folder or binder, or just keep it away from heat and light, wrapped in an inert material, like pure cotton cloth or something.
