Does it stick to a magnet? What does it weigh?

It doesn't stick to a magnet and unfortunately I don't have a scale yet. Going to order a scale now though.

Can you post a better image? The coin looks too grainy to be authentic and usually cast coins look grainy, what does the edge look like? Can you see any irregularities.
