Looking for advice on taking coin photos...

I have been trying to tweak my coin photo taking method to produce quality picks that would be considered good enough to use for possible grading. I'm working with a older 4MP camera on Macro setting. Lighting is wall mounted track lighting in my living room with the cameras flash that I manually filter. Anyone have any pointers on how to better the quality of the pictures or tricks they use and are willing to share? Thank you in advance. Here are 3 of my test photos. None have had their color adjusted. Thank you for any and all advice.
