You don't want to say later "This penny was worth $50 until I cleaned it".

Both your British coins (which are still legal tender) and your French Francs (which have been superseded by the €uro of course) are commonly found by the million and are worth either nothing but scrap value, or their face value - however I cannot comment on the others.

Cleaning should be done with a dilute solution of tin oxide, using a soft polishing cloth. Soaking metal in tin oxide solution will not corrode it, rather it's mildly abrasive and will work as a grime/oxidation remover. (Tin oxide is what professionals use to polish glass to a mirror finish.)

boogieboy, The 4 British pound coins , as Qdos states , are only worth their face value (i.e. £1 each) they each had a very high mintage of approximately 20,000,000 each Which in relative terms is a ratio of 1:3 of the British population !!!

This 1967 Quarter could be worth $1 to $7 1967 Washington Quarter Value | CoinTrackers

I would say closer to $1 by the looks of it.

Tips:

Never try to remove the natural oxidation from coins, such as the tarnish on silver. This is called "toning" and the coin is worth more with it intact. Removing it will damage the coin's surface and greatly reduce its value. In other words, no dipping, polishing, or chemical solutions should ever be used on coins.
Those Italian 100-Lire coins (pics 2 + 3) were the equivalent of about 5 pieces of candy or a few telephone tokens
As already mentioned by Qdos, all those coins were circulated and have mostly sentimental (if any) value.
With coins it's always a 2 edged sword: Book value is one but then you also need to find someone willing to pay that price. My inlaw dabbles in coins and stamps He told me to check here:

What's My Coin Worth? Rare coin values. Rare coin prices.

Looks like you shouldn't quit your job just yet
