I would really appreciate anyone that can shed any light on this item. What it may be worth and how collectable it may be? I know there are different markings and variations that can have an impact on its collectability which I am not aware of.

I have collected a bunch of coins over the years and would like some feedback on them. It is much more gold in color and the picture shows it as having a much lighter shade.

It would be greatly appreciated and any feedback I would be very thankful for. Have a great day my friends and thank you so much for any help in advance! : )

    Please check out my post with a group of foreign gold coins and you can see exactly what this coin weighs and of course it's easy enough to do the math from there, as to what it's worth "gold content wise". The actual value above the gold content is minuscule due to the fact it's been part of a piece of jewelry. If possible never have gold coins incorporated into jewelry and NEVER clean a gold coin, because that destroys any value above the actual gold content. My post also has an example of your other gold coins/coin. Very nice indeed and of these pieces, I would recommend that they be the last thing you sell if and when the time came where you had to sell. Same thing goes with all of your silver coins as well.
