    Shield didn't work, turned the silver to a gold color.

    Interesting analogy... However, I would definitely have that coin sent in for restoration. Cheers, RickO

    That particular coin has been on my watch list for a while, just waiting for an excuse to pull the trigger ;)

    I'm trying to figure out how gold would tone that way. I've seen the occasional coppery spot here and there, but never anything like this...

    Contact with some type of rubber; a gasket, rubber band? Improper storage?

    It could be SWLS.

    Rubber is of course reactive with silver but I haven't seen that with gold, which doesn't corrode. Even shipwreck stuff like the Central America pieces only had some minor color variances.
    Heat?

    probably a few things can cause this. i'd guess either a cardboard 2x2 with some minor slices in the plastic (i've seen TONS of this on coins in dealer's boxes at shows but different colors) OR from a coin capsul with cracks. the going into those areas, even if seemingly sealed can cause this pretty easily.

    there was someone that posted their modern gold that had this happen and while i thought it looked neat, they didn't and sent the coin(s) in for conservation. the thread was in the last few months i think.

    @Zoins

    unless the holder/grade mattered for this coin, i think i'd q-tip dip the lower brown spots off so just the 4 blue laser attacks would be left. i figure it isn't your coin though.

    Not mine, but like @WilliamF, I am considering it :)

    Good comments on the brown spots. :+1:

    Hold on while I scrape a little egg off my face. HA!
    That's definitely toned but I think you'd agree it's not the norm with the preponderance of gold coins.
    There are exceptions to everything I suppose but having that kind of color on a modern seems odd.

    I’ve seen purplish toning on modern gold before. This one is turning purple, easiest to see on the reverse devices. On the mirrored fields it just looks hazy, but on the devices it’s purplish

    ok. i just engined it and it is a shipwreck coin, i'm mistaken. LINK - there were a few links to choose from. i thought this is the "supernova" coin but i just placed it to the wrong collection in my mind.

    No, guys. This was from S.S. Central America, remember? The "Supernova!" A very controversial coin, mainly because of the attractive/unattractive toning ) depending on where the viewer stood.)
