This coin is gold in color , it is NOT the light reflecting onto it. I work in a convenience store so I am always coming across old coins. Sometimes I think people get hard up for cash n get into Grandmother's coin stash. I say this because, there isn't just one here and there show up its several pieces at a time from the same people who NEVER have $ and use every last cent they have to buy cigs. LUCKY ME, I am always scannin the change to see what treasure might be in there.

    May it have been part of a Commemorative set?

    I believe you are correct. We have a large board (cardboard) with a U.S. map on it. Each state has a place to put the quarter for that state. In the far upper right there is a place to insert the gold coin. I know there were places that put what they called a gold layer over the original coin. Those sold for around $6. The gold color one we had I got as change from the store. I think we gave the board and all the quarters away a couple of years ago.

    I also got this coin for change at work. As I was looking through my change last night, I found yet another gold coin. There are coin collectors in a neighboring town and I was thinking about taking my collection to see if I had anything good. They will tell you if they are valuable and offer you $$$ on the spot. You do not have to sell though. Thank You for the input. :)
