    you don't say what type of metal the coin is made of. I would first soak it in bleach water about 4 parts water to 1 part bleach. After about 15 minutes I would remove it from the bleach mixture and scrub it with a old tooth brush.

    I think that will take the green off.

    Good Luck

    PS sorry you had to clean the coin because it does lower the value.
