Can you help me determine whether this is a real coin . Because of the date I am curious about it. It has a beveled edge and the back has 13 stars. Coin is slightly gold in color .

It's a about 4cms across, I don't have a way to weigh it but it's significantly heavier than a modern coin

That is 100% not a genuine 1799 gold eagle.

Thank you, how can you tell it's fake? Are there a lot of fakes?

It is a replica of a US Gold Coin and not real .
If you get it XRF ed by a coin dealer or Jeweller
you will have your answer , cost about ten bucks .
I have seen similar pieces on my European Coin
buying trips . There are most likely gaming
counters ( Spielmarke) a possible creation by
Lauer , German manufacture .
Another possibility is a promo piece , made pre
Hobby Protection Act , thus not marked "Copy" .
One thing for sure ........ you are not rich LOL !

The obv rim and dentils instantly marks it as a fake.

Subject coin


Genuine coin. Notice the broad flat rims separated from the dentils on the subject coin abd the almost lack of any rim on the genuine coin.
