    It is sterling silver and worth at least $3 in silver. I would need to look in my Krause Catalog to see if it is a better date and worth more. Grade looks gF to VF.

    Nice looking piece! Probably a Fine-12 or a bit better.

    Just looking at allcoinvalues.com which suggests VF value at $750 AUD.

    my 2016 Krause says F12-$50.00 VF20-$300.00 XF40-$1,200

    I am not sure of the grade ? VF+-XF ??? wait for more experienced opinions. awesome coin and date.

    500,000 is not a low mintage.

    I would grade it at VF 30 to 35, using the American grading system. I have no idea of the mintage or rarity, still a good looking silver coin over 100 years old. Got to respect that. As for price or value, I have an 1892 ZAR 2 1/2 shilling with a mintage of 16,300 that I bought a year or two ago for about 40 quid. Go figure.

    "Quid" is British slang for 1 pound (£) sterling. Go to wikipedia to find the "Guinea", which is a higher denomination, gold coin...Spark
