The Bahamas $2 coin was a non-circulating coin sold at a premium to collectors as part of sets. They were minted from 1966 – 1973 in .925 silver and in both copper nickel and silver from 1974-1980. The design that you have shows two flamingos, a sunset with rays between them and wreath in a semi-circle around. The reverse shows a bust of Queen Elizabeth II.
Value depends on condition: from bullion value (.8863 oz silver) to about 10% over bullion value for an uncirculated piece.
