You have a 1883 Philippines silver 10 Centavos (100 Centavos=1 Peso). The Philippines were under Spanish rule at this time. The portrait is of King Alfonso XII of Spain.
The coin is in low grade with the rim worn down into the letters (grade:about good). High grade pieces are rare, low grade pieces are in poor demand. Value: about $5.
