Default Watering can, galvanised on outside only?

I was pouring rusty water on my plants the other day and noted that it's
galvanised on the outside, but only the top inch or so on the inside.

So i'm emptying it each use and putting it away somewhere dry, seems
pointless to me galvanising it at all.

Is that right/normal?

You've had a chemical in it that's removed the coating.

Unlikely he had acid in it.
