I need some Help with MY First 1 Oz. Gold Maple Leaf

Hi everyone,
Yesterday I bought my fist 1 oz gold Maple Left.
The Seller its realible,
but comparing it with the other online seem to me a little different.
Can someone more expert than me look the pictures and say what you think?
Is it original?

Thanks to everyone that will help.

Definitely doesn't look right, maybe tungsten or silver that the cladding is coming off of. I'd check all the measurements and weights to start with.

Diameter 30 mm. and thickness 2.8 mm.
Do you have one to scan and compare???
I have realized that the scanner its not the best way to represent coins,
here is some picture.

Hey Avatar
it would be a dreadful start to stacking if your first gold coin is a dud.

Sincere best wishes and hope its just the difference between computer imagery and the real thing that you have in your hand.
