Is it a gold-plated nickel or a $5 gold half-eagle? One is worth 5 cents and the other a few hundred dollars. If it has an eagle on the back and a D mint mark it is a gold half eagle. The confusion is because both coins are almost exactly the same size. However the half-eagle will be about 60% heavier than a nickel.

At current (08/2008) gold prices a 1907-D half eagle is worth $220 to $280 depending on how worn it is.

No nickel has ever been made of gold. You may have one that has been plated or it may be toned a gold color. Either way it's bad. Gold plating kills the collectible value of any coin. And for buffalo nickels, gold or blue toning means it's been chemically cleaned at some point. Unfortunately it's just a nickel.
