    Hi! I'm rather new here, but some years ago i dug up a very neat coin with a metal detector that can also find various precious metals.
    It seems to be silver, and its not perfectly round.
    I myself am not very educated when it comes to coins, but for the emotional value that this coin has to me, i'd love to know what you can tell me about it : ) note that it isn't for sale, i'll most probably donate it to a local museum that has more dug up treasures like this one (atleast, once im done appreciating it's beauty!)
    attached files has pictures of front and back.

    Nice find!

    It is a Dutch Republic 1 gulden 1732 province of West Friesland and should be 32 mm in diameter.

    I do not know what your coins grade is ?
    I am sure the values are higher now.

    Thank you for your answer! The coin is indeed 32mm in diameter. Not sure how special this coin is, but i'm sure proud of my find :D

    The grade of my coin will probably be low, since there is a large stain on it. Quite sacriligious but i've also attempted to clean it (which i now realize isn't something i should be doing)
