    Hello and Welcome !
    Toning or staining . Can you show the coin larger and shoot the rim ?

    Welcome to CT.
    Could be just the positioning of the camera, but pic of Obverse shows what looks like a bit of a misaligned die (MAD).

    That looks like a typical coin that I find with my metal detector that has been buried in the sand for a period of time. In constant contact with salty damp sand will turn a coin to colors like that in just a few weeks. I have some 2021 coins that look like that that I have dug up. Environmental damage.

    It just toned that color without being in the dirt. Common. Welcome to CT.

    Not unusual to discolor and tone. Thanks for posting and welcome to CT. Good luck.

    Welcome to CT @Change4fun. When posting photos of coins, I advise members to use the Full Image setting. Here is a blurb I post about it.

    For the best results, you should post "in focus," FULL IMAGE photos (after you upload your photo, two buttons appear: Thumbnail and Full Image, click Full Image and your photo appears full size on your post and are easily enlarged by clicking on it). Photograph coins on neutral backgrounds like black, grey, or white. Crop out superfluous background so just the coin shows (you can use https://www.remove.bg for free), and post photos with correct orientation so members don't have to turn their computer in some awkward fashion to view it properly. While it isn’t always necessary, it is nice to show both the obverse and reverse, even if your question is just about one side. Members can often give more valuable information having both sides to evaluate. Add close ups of areas you have questions about and make your questions as definitive as possible so we know what you are asking for. And try to have the best lighting possible to show the most favorable photo of the coin. Hope this helps in the future. Good luck.
