Hi guy's got this last week in my change. The coin seems to be discoloured. Can anyone of you experts tell me how this happens.

Regards jim.

Looks like heat to me, Jim. You can get similar effects using a heat gun.

I remember people used to use Taco Bell napkins because they contained sulphur (?), wrapped the coin in a napkin and inside tin foil for a few months and they come out with extreme colours. To each their own.
