Maybe it's from all of those gold flakes on your lamo!

No, probably just environmental, staining. There is so much stuff out in the world that gets in contact with coins.
Not the wrong planchet.

Nearly 20 years old now could have toned over time for any number of reasons.

Coins acquire such stains from two causes: burial in dirt, where the tannic acids impart brownish staining, or from sitting in a chlorinated fountain or swimming pool for a while, in which case it's the free chlorine causing the reaction.

Easiest way to tell those apart is to soak in acetone. Soil stains will mostly come off, chlorine stains won't.

What if it's none of those, but I probably lean towards chlorine stain.
