Good Day David,
My mother has this coin since way back and she is asking me if I could get some info on it.
Many Thanks

Answer
Hello Ivan,

It looks like you have an 8 Real Spanish Silver Coin. It is badly worn so I can not make a positive identification and it could be a replica. If it is authentic the value in this condition would be between $25 and $50.

If you can get this coin tested for the silver content you might be able to authenticate it.
