I like light golden toning. I like ones with even rim toning. Golden toning a little darker at the rim and gets lighter as you get closer to the center. Not real big on monster rainbow toners. Also like kobalt blue nickels.

I agree with @physics-fan3.14, it has to be attractive.  I know that's the most subjective part.  I define "attractive" as toning that is  1) original and 2) compliments the design elements.  

I like dark and lightly toned coins.  I do not like the latest trend of people paying 3x for toned coins.

 

...ok 6X it is then....

It depends on the type of coin for me, older coins that SHOULD have toning, the deeper the better, more modern coins I prefer none at all. I know alot of people would consider this one too dark, but for me its perfect......

You have asked a question that has far too many variables to be answered, however I'm sure that you know that.
