I think it's taught in chemical classroom how to change copper coin to silver color and to gold color.
I'm not sure it's this case too or not.

A little gray spots on the coin, I think this is a steel basis of a coin.

Weight on my scales
1) Coin from bank roll 2.30 g
2) Yellow coin 2.33 g
3) Random coin from my wallet 2.33 g

It looks like a gold-plated coin, I would have to see it in person,
but steel basis is an evidence of it.

This coin was found on the floor in the car which was bought in Germany.
I don't think what coin was gold plated and lost in the car

Why someone need to do this?

Dear Medved, why are you first trying to sell it and than come here and ask what you have exactly (I saw your ad on Facebook) ?
I think that this is indeed just a guilt coin (or any other chemical experiment).

Have seen pieces like that before; they are usually third party gilded. In Germany (and elsewhere too) such "lucky pennies" were and are somewhat common. In the DM years, that was a "Glückspfennig"; the term is still in use, or you can say "Glückscent".

Take a hammer, or acid, and you will find that the "golden" or "yellowish" cent coin is actually nothing but a copper plated piece of steel. :)

Why? Why not?
I'm not trying first at Facebook. I'll do it at the same time. It is a problem? This is not auction I can sell it or swap it there I want.

I know what it is piece of steel plated with cooper. I don't think what this coin gold-plated.
The question is: What can be happend with coin, which was found in the car?

Anyway thanks to all for your comments :)
