Some British pennies that I got in a mixed auction lot have same colouring - I think it's due to cleaning.

The natural color of this coin in near UNC condition looks like this:



I agree that an old cleaning and re-toning could be an explanation.

(edit: I just realized my coin is an earlier type, with slightly different composition, so the comparison makes less sense.)

Difficult to explain without knowing what that coin is made from. I doubt it's Gold though. Might be just natural toning for that type of coin.
