How much does it weigh (coin only, obviously) and can you post a pic of the reverse? Is it magnetic?

I agree with Spruett. Weight and magnet are a good place to start.
I hesitate to say it's plated. Most plated coins I come across have details muted somewhat. That LMC has crisp sharp details.

Note that if you don't want to remove the coin from its holder weigh with it then weigh an empty holder. Simple math gives us an answer.

The coin does not look plated . Looks interesting like it escaped the copper plating .

If you can give us the weight that would be very helpful. (Of course without the case). It may have gotten out of the mint without Being plated. It's also in pretty nice shape. Fingers crossed!
