    Eesti Pank is presenting the silver and gold collector coins for the 100th anniversary of the establishment of the Republic of Estonia.

    “As a central bank we are making an important contribution to the celebration of the anniversary of the Republic of Estonia by issuing two collector coins. These coins of precious metal will support and help transmit the message of the date that is special for all of us”, said Ardo Hansson, Governor of Eesti Pank.

    The gold collector coin for the centenary of the Republic has been designed by Tiiu Pirsko and Mati Veermets. Its design features the Estonian national flower, the cornflower, and the oldest Estonian geometric design, in which the symbols represent perfect happiness, development and balance. The silver coin was designed by Margus Kadarik and Toomas Niklus and has a design featuring the outline of Estonia in blue, black and white on a globe. In the sky above is a line of poetry by Kristjan Jaak Peterson “Is not the language of this land singing in the wind, or rising to heaven, looking for eternity?”. The silver and gold collector coins were minted by the Lithuanian mint.

    That looks horrible, not sure if there is a way to get rid of them. Will stay loyal to ebay so I have the option to send it back if something like this would occur. Such a pretty coin but so much hair and debris.

    You could probably rinse it out with acetone, assuming that won't mess up the colored portion

    Is acetone also safe for plastic or it might affect?

    Not safe for most plastics - find brand new replacement capsules, but don't expose the existing ones to acetone!
    Coin capsules are made of acrylic - they will dissolve or deteriorate if exposed to acetone.
    See this reactivity chart for chemicals vs. plastics > Acetone x Acrylic = D :eek:

    Good point.
    I once poured some acetone into a styrofoam cup to do a soak for a coin.
    I stepped out and a few minutes later had a nasty mess to clean up.

    I had a friend come into the lab after riding his motorcycle and offhandedly mention that he had some bug juice on his helmet visor he was going to clean off with acetone. I must have been like that credit report advertisement as I dived for him yelling NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO... The visor was frosted, but he polished it out fairly well with toothpaste.

    When working with acetone, use a glass jar with a screw on lid (small jelly jar or marinated artichoke jar are good) - avoid splashing the acetone on the inside of the lid, as it will dissolve/deteriorate the plastic gasket material

    Thanks for the advice. I ended up using a glass double shot glass which happened to be the perfect size to fit a Morgan dollar with a bit of space underneath for acetone to reach all corners of it.
