Help identifying X-Men Alpha (gold vs regular)

I've got a copy of X-Men Alpha and I have been looking around on how to go about identifying if I have the "gold" version or the "standard" version.

Mycomicshop.com notes say the gold edition has a "rainbow" effect to it (which mine does) but the regular version appears to have it as well so a bit confused.

Any thoughts / help is appreciated!

707comics, I believe the easiest way to tell them apart is from the back cover.  If it has a UPC, it's the standard edition.  If it has a solid box with no barcode, it's the "gold" version.

It looks like there are four versions:

* The "common" chromium cover that has a barcode ending in 111 on the back

* The "gold" cover that has a solid silver box on the back with no barcode

* A 2nd printing that has a "regular" (as in non-chromium) cover ending in 112 on the back

* A True Believers reprint from a few months ago

I hope that helps...
