It is gold plated. It is a privately minted copy of an ASE.

it says right on the back of the coin, 100 mills .999 gold. which means it is plated extremely thinly with gold, sticking to magnet means it is not silver underneath.. it is worth a buck or two.. Hope you didn't pay too much for it..

A privately made replica of an American Silver Eagle made out of some cheap metal. It has little value.

It looks like one of QVC channel coins for the remarkable price of only $19.99 plus shipping and handling.

Little Hydrochloric acid and some hydrogen peroxide should get that gold off if you want it instead of the coin :D Or I think even Hydrochloric acid and Nitric acid can get that gold off too!
If it works with computer parts, I'm sure it could work for the plated coins aswell lol
Research how to recover gold plating. Its interesting and eye opening

So what'd you pay? Is that person a friend? FYI, these "coins" (they're not really coins) are produced to take advantage of the ignorance of potential buyers. It states right on it exactly what it is and yet most people simply don't know what the words mean. They think they're getting something of value and yet reality is that they simply purchased something that looks similar to a real coin, but it's really just worthy of the recycle bin.

In principle, assuming that it's really as large as a real ASE (which it might not necessarily be) and really has a 100 mill(ionths) gold plating (which they could also have skimped on), it should have... um, 0.00254 mm times 40.6 mm squared times half pi times gold density - that's around 20 - times whatever gold price is... carry the one... something along the lines of $5 worth of gold.

(I cheated and used Wolfram Alpha, which gave me $5.12, but my initial back-of-the-napkin calculations ended up with around $5 as well.)

In practice, of course it's probably still worth a buck or two, because it's not remotely near profitable to recover the minuscule amount of gold in that plating (assuming that it's even actual gold plating at all).
