Yes. If you have a complete system backup, you should have the required file.

The wallet information is stored in c:\users\<username>\appdata\roaming\GoldCoin (GLD)\wallet.dat

The "appdata" directory is generally hidden. Google "how to find appdata folder" if you need help.

See if you can locate the file and report back.

You can also ask the shop to locate and backup this file.

If it's a computer shop they can take out the hard drive and try to access its data.
