    The magnetic response of two-dimensional uncapped Au islands tens of nanometers in size was measured using a superconducting quantum interference device magnetometer. The magnetization vs. field was found to exhibit a clear ferromagnetic-like hysteresis loop and a large positive remanent magnetization was acquired after momentary application of a strong magnetic field. The Au magnetic response is assumed to be due to the surface effects in the nanosized islands and the large fraction of canted surface magnetic moments which interaction and mutual orientation differ from the bulk diamagnetic order.
