The seller says: "white metal".


I think nickel.

"White metal" makes more sense than aluminum now that I think about it a bit more.


Medals were often struck in white metal because it is a cheap alloy and brilliantly reflective when struck. However, white metal is vulnerable to tin pest, easily corroding and becoming unattractive.
