Gold doesn't tone... So I guess this is a gold plated fake that has been worn down?

Pure gold doesn't tone, but coin gold contains alloys to harden it somewhat (usually copper) and the copper alloy can tone.

 

I don't know if the coin in the link is real or not, but I wouldn't condemn it on the basis of being toned.
