Weights 5.88 gr (instead of 5.58)
Slightly magnetic
Slightly tooled in 4 points.

Is it a coin from a special production or a regular coin that was coated by a jeweler?

I have a lot of such (UK) coins

​Thank you PetrusAscanus, I was wondering why they coated with magnetic metal and not with silver
