Found US quarter coin revealed it’s secret.

Found US quarter coin revealed it’s secret.

While walking along a city sidewalk, very close to the street, I looked down into the street gutter and spotted what looked like a quarter.  I picked it up and was shocked to see one side of the quarter lost part of it’s covering.  I could not believe what I was holding.  I assumed that our US coins are solid, not coated.  My research shows the following:

“US quarters are “clad,” which means they are coated with multiple layers of different metals. The inner core of a quarter is pure copper, and the outer layer is a 75% copper, 25% nickel alloy that has a silver color. The layers of metal help the coin last longer.”
