Gold-plated steel?

According to reports, some central banks have been duped into buying gold-plated steel.

This is incredible for two reasons.

First, that a central bank would be duped at all.

Second, that they could be duped into thinking steel (so much lighter than gold!) weighed as much as gold!  You should be able to tell just by holding it in your hands. 

Tungsten, OK, I can understand. 

But steel?
