I spent a few years working in a plating shop and I can tell you that the results are only as good as the prep work. Plate over anything with a hint of lawrencite disease wouldn't last no matter what was done to prepare it. A solid flawless center slice might hold up well and since gold plating is usually just a flash of gold you could easily polish off the gold at a future date.
