    Welcome to CoinTalk.

    Please post a photo of your coin. We cannot tell you much about your find from only a vague description.

    It is highly doubtful it is a genuine US coin for several reasons:

    1) You say your coin is dated 1776. The US did not start minting coins until 1792.

    2) You say your coin has a denomination of "20D". The highest denomination silver US coin is $1.

    3) The US did not start minting a $20 coin until 1849. And it was a gold coin.

    4) The "dollar" denomination was not used on Colonial coinage.

    without a picture: nothing.

    Most likely, a cast copy.

    But, again, without a picture, value = Nada.

    Re: the photographed piece:

    Imitation of a twenty dollar gold piece, probably made within the last 20-30 years. Not an actual coin or numismatic item of any kind, and therefore zero numismatic value. Any value would be based on the jewelry value of the entire piece.

    it was probably made during the bicentennial year.

    I agree with coinmaster1. I suggest googling it. Also try looking on ebay. Maybe worth something other than scrap.

    Do you think it's silver content because I ran across the exact same one and did Check with a magnet and it's definitely a precious metal. Plated or not I don't know and I hate to scratch it
