Need a little confirmation on what I have. It's a 1990p nickel that looks like gold is a part of obverse.

Looks like some yellowed varnish or glue got on it, or it might have been plated, though with the latter, the reverse would likely show the same effect. The color only seems to be left in the low spots which were protected during circulation. That includes a deep ding on the nose (damage after leaving the mint) that is yellow, which is another clue that the color is from an event after it left the mint.

@ldc, first welcome to CCF. Second, I've moved your thread over to a better section of CCF to get some additional opinions on what might have been added to the surface of this nickel.

Thanks my man, this is my first ever coin website to join. Wasn't sure where to start. I've just viewed videos on YouTube from time to time just to know what to look for in pocket change. Never run across anything really worth trying to figure out till this nickel.No videos at all about the color, just that one ad picture on eBay and then I had to go somewhere to find out what's up even if it's worthless.

With Numiscrat it looks like a beat up coin someone messed with.

Other than the yellow color, that is almost certainly unrelated. Whether intentionally applied or not, the coin you posted from eBay appears "toned"—a consequence of the metal in a coin reacting with other chemicals in its immediate environment over time, which can be desirable to some collectors. That is not the same thing as plating or contamination from a yellowish goo, which almost always decreases value in the eyes of nearly all collectors .

The eBay coin is also of a very different composition, which might allow it to turn those colors. And that coin didn't see much in the way of circulation, either. On the other hand, bright colors on a heavily circulated coin is usually a red flag that someone has intentionally altered a coin's surface.

Collectors will assess the two coins completely differently for multiple reasons.

Just curious. Is the eBay seller trying to claim that they have a nickel with gold content?

Oh definitely, soon as I entered this site I could tell it's professional and not interested in dealing with people who bullcrap about what they actually have.

First clue it is not a gold coin. It wore off the surface of the coin. It is not real gold, it is paint or something else. Not something you can cash in. The only time you can have a gold coin, is if the gold blank was struck with a wrong set of dies:


Then you would have something worth more than the gold it was struck on. But on your coin, it is not a gold coin.

Okay, at least I know now it's definitely not any gold content. I knew that was a long shot. The eBay coin seller is not advertising as gold nickel, just the color of way it looks but no explanation on how it got that way except that it rainbowed that way. Which if they do you would figure there were some examples and coin pros would have info on why and how.

Got ya,. I wasn't sure how coins wore down over time or how different contents were minted. I appreciate the info for learning this. I wonder if someone purposely did this to the coin, never will know that but maybe if y'all can identify what substance is on it that could tell definitely tell us more.

I know the coins worthless and not worth researching. I won't be disappointed about not wasting the time.
