Archaeological discoveries of plates made of gold, have been made since the coming forth of the Book of Mormon in 1830.  
These ancient people did indeed make and used metal plates.  Some of these plates that have been found have been made out of gold as were the Book of Mormon plates. Some of these plates were made out of "thin plates of gold" as were the Book of Mormon plates. (Joseph Smith-History 1:34)
These ancient people also made metallic plates out of other metal elements such as copper. They also did make and use stone boxes to store valuable items. 
The following are a few examples of the post Book of Mormon discoveries:
