    It depends on the coin and the way you want to present it.  Most people like their old coins to have that old petina on it.  Sometimes cleaning a coin reduce the desirable aspect of having an older coin.  I personally use vinager and baking soda, I make a paste and rub it on the coins or other silver items.  I really don't recommend polishing any old coins unless you are wanting to present them in a hard plastic cover.
