Anybody know where I can find a Jumbo US Quarter that is nice and shiny and not that grey color. I would like a jumbo that is the same color as a regular quarter. Thanks for any help!

I'm wondering how shiny these are, based on the Amazon reviewers, who are saying they wished the coin were shinier. Maybe it is not as shown in the picture?

Years ago I bought a chrome-plated 3-inch jumbo quarter, and it is very shiny. But over time it started flaking on parts. Now and again I search around for another one, and I never see a chrome jumbo quarter listed. The closest I've seen is this chrome jumbo half dollar:

Ace Hardware and some of the big box stores sell a chrome spray paint. Really shiny and you can top coat it with a spray acrylic glossy paint to preserve it. Just clean your large quarter with some fine steel wool before painting. I have done it and it works.

Thanks for the tip!

By the way, I use a jumbo quarter after Bag4Life, like in this video (which shows additional coin effects in between, but I'll go more directly from Bag4Life to the jumbo coin):
