Medal: Canada Alberta Wild Rose 1905
Alberta's provincial year is 1905. This is not a coin, i.e., legal tender, but a medal issued by a gasoline company during Canada's 1967 centennial. Such items do not usually carry much collector value. Figure a value around $15 US dollars or less. The wear on your piece works against value. Other provinces also appear on these commemorative medals.
CoinQuest thanks a visitor named Henri for providing information about this medal.
