    As a matter of fact I was discussing the coin with a coin dealer in Carlsbad today, and he came up with another possibility - chrome is a very heavy metal, and he thought it might have been double plated - first with chrome, then with gold.

    Frankly I still think a visit to the school's science lab, and some converstation with the teacher, is the most likely way to learn the facts and quit guessing and theorizing. Just my 2¢.;)

    Anything that has generated this much discussion deserves a place in your collection if for no other reason than to generate a great discussion amoung your coin collecting friends.

    Dunno what it is but I like the oddness of it. It does look to me to be two different respresentations of Eisenhower the "gold" one appears to be very different than the traditional one.

    Well let me put it this way. Somebody once brought up the question of biting a gold coin - so I put it to the test. I carry a 1 oz AGE in my pocket at all times - so I bit it. Yes - it left a mark.

    But I sure wouldn't want to bite a clad coin :eek:

    Im not familiar with gold coins so I am unfamiliar as to what an AGE is...
