Very curious if this is counterfeited and if so why? Maybe just an experiment? Strange find since its magnetic.

It looks like it's been plated. The metal used to plate the coin may be magnetic.

Do you know the weight?

Not sure the weight yet. The outer rim is a metallic color. Is it possible that it was plated twice? Looks like it's steel.

With the plating process, some are only plated once. But like the old fashioned bumpers on the older cars, they were plated three times on a prepared surface. So the single plating ones, do not have the a reflective sheen, that triple that plating creates. But anything done to alter a mint finish, removes value that could have been there if the surface was normal. Pretty much spendable. Non collectors fall for these, but are really face value coins after they are altered.

Do you know what makes it magnetic? I read only iron , colbolt and nickel are magnetic.

Probably iron was plated onto the coin. When he says magnetic it is a weak attraction. Like holding it self upright. But take the same magnet to a 1943 steel cent, it just leaps to the magnet. Not the same attraction to a plated cent.

Interesting. I read that iron plating is difficult and oxidizes quickly. So this means it was iron plated and really gold plated, unlike the normal process of copper / zinc to brass. Now the strange part is no rust. And yes it is a weaker magnetic attraction.
