Photographing old coins

I have many old coins that are Copper Bronze & Silver etc from the 17and 18hundreds they are all well worn and a very dark color.

What is the best method for cleaning these coins  without doing more damage, I'm setting up a 3 light source and will figure out the best angle for the lights

Its mainly the cleaning that I need advice on  and perhaps the light angles as well

Thanks....Jeff
