I like to see a Halo of color around the edge of US coins. Some like to use the term rainbow loosely. I call it a rainbow when most or all of the colors of the color spectrum are present. Red Orange Yellow Green Blue Indigo and violet.

I agree with your remarks about colors needed to be called rainbow toned.  I have also seen White coins with a Rainbow colored tone due to the iridescence of sunlight on the fresh appearing patina.  Some have also called that effect, Rainbow toning.
