I'm not sure about corrosion, but if they're just generally dull, dingy and yucky looking; try Taco Bell sauce.

Saturate a penny in Taco Bell sauce and then rub it between your fingers before you rinse it off. It really works.

(Imagine what that stuff's doing to your stomach.)

P.S. You might try Coca-Cola. It works for battery terminals in your car.

pennies are made of copper and the corrosion that you see is called patina and is composed by copper oxides and carbonates. you can remove the corrosion layer with a weak acid like vinegar or lemon juice. see how to clean copper pennies methods
