General dirt and dust can be removed from your medallion using either a soft, natural bristle brush or a soft, lint-free cotton cloth.  

Applying a thin coat of microcrystalline wax (e.g. Conservator’s Wax, available at Lee Valley Tools) annually will help protect your medallion.  Apply wax in a thin coat and then buff surface to a sheen with a soft, lint-free cotton cloth. 

It is strongly advised that you refrain from using commercial metal polishes to clean and polish your medallion.  Your medallion comes finished with a protective patina.  Commercial metal polishes contain harsh abrasives that will strip your medallion of its patina.  Metal polishes also leave residue behind in crevices which can be difficult to remove and will provide the ideal conditions for corrosion to occur.
