    When you put the solution on the gold marks on stone.If it is gold, the color should not turn green, it should stay the same color gold.

    An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.

    A real Spanish cob gold coin would be between 92 and 93% fine; ergo,..........

    What you have looks like a copy of the FERDINAND & ISABELLA coin (Catholic Kings). The shield is of CASTILE AND LÉON
    in Spain.

    There are several mints and were made in 1-reale, 2-reales, 4-reales silver cobs between 1469-1516.

    The 1-reale is about 23-27mm in diameter and 3.1gr
    The 2-reale is about 32-32.5mm in diameter and 6.4gr
    The 4-reales is about 1.25 inch in diameter and 13.7 gr

    I have only seen these coins in silver. I have never seen one in gold. I wonder if yours could be a brass or billon (silver alloy).

    Moe has got it. It's probably a cast lift copy of a silver 4 reals with the galley reverse.
