    I usually use some dawn and warm water with a SOFT brush if necessary. Then soak it olive oil or mineral oil for a few weeks or months. Re clean, rub lightly with Vaseline to seal it and either store or display.

    You can do the hot peroxide trick first but honestly the coin doesn't look bad. I would use the most gentle cleaning necessary.
    You don't want it "too" clean. I would stay away from any acids like lemon juice, vinegar, etc. That can (and usually will) easily destroy whatever value you have.
