Nordic Gold is the alloy used for the 10, 20 and 50 eurocent and has a gentle golden color. Nordic Gold is often used to produce souvenir coins because it is very resistant to tarnishing, so there is no discoloration over time.
Nordic Gold has the quality advantages of brass, but is considered to be a safe alloy. Nordic Gold tokens are difficult to copy because the alloy is only only produced for coinage applications.
Nordic Gold has a specific electromagnetic signature and material density allowing electronic coin validators to distinguish them easily from other coins.
