    Lucky kid with the sovereign. (How does gold seriously help with arthritis, though?)

    My guess is that gold helps to restore electrical connections in damaged nerves.

    How does anyone mistake a gold coin (which does not tarnish) from any coin that is commonly used today?

    I dunno how it works, but they gave my mom gold salts shots for heel spurs other arthritic symptoms and it took the pain away for FIVE YEARS at a time.

    Whoever spent it was an idiot, the cashier who gave it out was an idiot too.

    Did the gold sovereign show Queen Victoria’s left side?

    Although gold doesn’t tarnish, it could have been encrusted from being underwater or discolored from lying next to other metals (such as iron). In which case it wouldn’t have been a nice shiny gold color, and somebody may have mistaken it for something worthless to pass along to a little kid.

    My guess is that gold is pretty good for
    depression, too.

    You might be surprised what coins continue to circulate. I have gotten canadian coins, buffalo-head nickles, mercury dimes, and even a WW2 non-copper penny.

    One of the best things out there without side effects is extracted curcumin, from tumeric root. I switched from nsaids for a surgery proceedure and never went back.

    Bee venom seems to help.

    My best guess is that it helps fill in the gaps between bones that cause arthritis.

    A gold coin worth $300; That’s about one day of normal spending.
