Mike allready gave you some great hints. Never use any abrasive materials. Some people use teeth brushing pastes but they will grind of the silver. Lemon juice will work fine and won't damage the silver. Neutralize it with liquid soap, washing it under water. Then best use some clean wax to cover it and prevent it form catching any new oxidation.

Try a good quality silver polish and thin it with water.

Never clean any coin of value!

But this works!
