Medal: Netherlands Cigar Florin 1887
This is a nice modern medallion privately produced for Dutch panatellas (cigars). It is very pretty, but it was not minted in 1887, more like 1987, in copper, not gold. Typical retail value is $5 to $20 US dollars. If you were selling one to a coin dealer, he or she might pay $5 for it, probably less. It is an interesting item, nevertheless.
