The coin that you have is a bullion coin. That is, it is bought and sold for its gold content. It has no numismatic value. The coin contains .1205 troy ounces of gold. If you multiply that number times the current gold price, you will get a good idea of how much the coin is worth, not counting a commission to a bullion or coin dealer.
