This looks like an imitation gold coin and probably brass.
Compare with an original and you will see that it is very crude.

You can always stick it in your collection until you get the real deal.

Your girlfriend is to be congratulated for spotting it anyway, and it's probably just as interesting as a real one. Probably a card game counter ...

Tbh (to be honest) i probably got most excited after receiving the pics of said fakery because my 6year old son found a 1936 George V penny  in the same stretch of burn last week!!!
i wonder if someone bought this off EBAY and just chucked it since its a bit if sh*t! lol  :blank:
Pat
*edit* The original pics looked decent enough, so its not my fault I was easily fooled!!! :P
