Re: 1943 CANADA 5 CENTS 18K GOLD PLATED
No and No...
They only look nice!!!..
When an item is electro plated, the plating material is very thin - less than 0.01mm - so there is hardly any volume of gold. So even though gold is expensive, a gold-plated item is worth just a few cents more than the item would be without the gold.
