Answer
Hi Don,

What you have is not a "coin", but rather a silver bullion art round.  It's not a spendable coin for any country, but rather a privately minted ounce of silver, made for trading only for its silver value.

I can't tell you which private company minted it -- there are hundreds/thousands of them out there that make silver rounds -- but its value will be only for the ounce of silver it contains.

I hope this helps,

Dan

Expertise

My strong familiarity with all U.S. Mint coins, extensive reference library, and close relationships with many other dealers allows me to identify just about any coin made in the USA. I receive regular updates to all the current price guides -- both wholesale & retail -- to provide accurate values. So, with a good description or pictures, I should be able to identify and value any U.S. coin you have.

Experience

I've been a coin dealer since the 1980's and a coin collector since the 1960's. I specialize in U.S. Silver Coins and have an active online website -- The Working Man's Rare Coins -- http://www.workingmancoins.com -- offering information and inventory in U.S. coins.
