Steve Spangler Science: Colorful Coins

Change the color of those dimes or nickels you have using a simple chemical reaction.

If you’ve ever needed to clean a coin like a nickel or a dime, you might have used vinegar. That’s a perfect combination, unless you forget to dry the vinegar off of the coin! With the Colorful Coins activity, you’ll see how there is more to a shiny nickel or dime that initially meets the eyes.
