The coin is quite scarce in all its variations. The coin has the portrait of William IV and a Lion walking left with a palm tree behind. You didn’t say which one you have or what grade and these factors are very important to establish market price but here is some general information:
All have RS incuse on truncation:
-Milled edge. Regular issue: $500-$3000
-Milled edge Proof: $2,500-$3,500.
-Milled edge restrike-Proof Like – $800-$1,000
-Plain edge – Very Rare
There are also proof examples in silver and copper.
