It looks like Gold , sounds like Gold ,and weighs in at the right grams  also the right specifications, also it’s not magnetic.

As far as I understand it "copper spots" can present on .999/.9999 gold. It may be the extremely low copper count in the compound or the discoloration is something else.

@Pete is spot on as to what this coin is.

It may be my shonky memory but I'm sure an example of these was being sold on the forum recently.

the coin has other issues , like it’s got a copper spot on it 

and it’s supposed to be 9999 24 ct

If I'm not mistaken full gold coins 999 can have copper spots

Oh thanks for establishing that everyone 

I found the 1/4 proof  but like yourself cant locate a 1/2 , that being said yours looks identical only obviously bigger.

Thanks James  but it is a entirely different coin 

but looks very similar 

May I ask why you think it's an entirely different coin? Other than you're one being 1/2 oz

Yes but yours is a  1/4  mine is 1/2

Yeah but I'm just trying to ease your mind by suggesting if there's a 1/4 which in identical to yours then there's likely a 1/2.

oh I Appreciate  that james what you say 

but I've become  obsessed  , but I will have to let it drop 

  it would be good to see it and the mintage 

Completely understand, maybe get a dealer/jewellers to test but hopefully the mint gets back to you.
