Gold hardware on jcrg5 - Is it coated?

While looking closely to the goldplated hardware on my JCRG-5 is must conclude that is is coated with some sort of clear laquer. Is there anybody out there there that can confirm this.
If yes, What type of coating is it?
Does it last a lifetime?

If it's a normal gold Lo pro, then it won't last very long. I believe the matt gold hardware lasts a bit longer. It's electroplated by the way.

It's *Pearl Gold*, just like my RG-4. It does appear to have a coating of some sort. Similar to that of the *Powder Coat* finish. As to its durability; time will tell. Though, it certainly looks tougher than the regular gold/cosmo finishes.
