My Grandparents gave this coin to me today. It is about the size of a quarter but about twice as thick, and I think it to be part gold. Anyone know more about it?
Update: I researched this coin and found that there are two different strike types: (1.) Circulation Strike, weighs 13 grams and is 14-Karat Gold, with an Actual Gold Weight of about one-quarter ounce. The Second Type is a Proof Strike weighs 16 grams and is 22-Karat Gold, with an Actual Gold Weight of about half an ounce.
The coin I was given, amazingly, was the proof type, with about half-an-ounce of gold.
