    Late night hunt!

    So!

    The coin isn't real...was really excited, but then noticed in fine print "copy"
    The gold is 14k though! So not bad.
    And could that other piece by any chance be a coin? Click image for larger version.

    Dam thats a nice find. Why would they put a copy in a gold setting? I hope the other one is something good.

    Well if they used real gold then what is a bit of silver going to hurt?

    At home you might be able to see how fast an ice cube melts on it compared to say a clad quarter.

    You could try a drop of bleach.

    Or there are lots of kits you can purchase to test at home, or maybe try a jeweler.
