$70 bucks for some coins?
One is 24 karat gold-plated and the other is sterling-silver plated, that's probably close to the going cost for this type of metal.
It's not ethical to tell children a lie like this.
It costs pennies on the dollar to apply gold plating only a few atoms thick. One of gold's characteristic qualities is that it is very ductile and it can be easily cast in an extremely thin layer.
The pins on an obsolete microprocessor contain more gold, and those are of such marginal value they're not even worth it to junk dealers to not toss in the trash with the rest of the unit.
