Goloid

An alloy metal consisting of copper, gold, and silver. In 1877, it was proposed that goloid coins consisting primarily of silver, about 10% copper, and 3% to 4% gold be used in the United States. Some proofs were made but they were never released into circulation due to the ease with which one could make counterfeit goloid coins without gold.
