  • There are some things you should do to ensure that you get the right price for this coin, as a Google search or anything of the like will not be able to provide you with an accurate answer. When it comes to valuing goods like this, whether they're coins or antiques, getting a good estimation of the value relies on you going to the right places and speaking to the right people. You do need to remember that if you talk to dealers about the value of a coin, they are always going to offer you a lesser price. This is because they have to make a profit on the coin, and will of course give you a smaller price than what is due.
So if you visit a few different dealers before making your decision, you will be able to choose the one that offers you the highest price. That is of course if you really do want to sell the coin at all.

If you want to find out a true estimation, however, then you could perhaps go to an antiques or coin shop. They may have an expert who understands coins like this who will be able to tell you how much it is worth, but do ensure that you tell them you're not interested in selling the coin. This way they will not tell you it is worth a little less so that they can purchase it from you at a lesser price. If they know that all you want is an estimation then they'll probably just tell you straight how much the coin is really worth.

If you go about doing this then make sure you speak to a few different people and don't take the word of the first person that you talk to. That way you can ensure you are getting a truly accurate estimation.
