Please Remember that Proof coins which are Minted individually
without touching by Human hand should not be taken out of the Plastic
case in which they are issued. A finger print on a Proof coin will
destroy the numismatic premium on the coin.
Illustrated below is What NOT TO DO.
Fingerprints are clearly
visible on the coin on left and would be almost impossible to remove without
damage to Proof quality of coin.
