Belgium 50 Francs (BELOIE) 1987 to 1993
This is a modern coin minted in nickel. Catalog values climb as high as $4 US dollars for a fully uncirculated specimen. Worn specimens are worth less than $1. These coins come with two different inscriptions: BELGIE and BELGIQUE.
Most of the time you see these coins they look far worse than our picture. The mint production quality control must have been lacking those years, as the wording BELGIE often looks like BELOIE. Likewise 1987 looks like 1907.
There is a possibility (this is a guess) that these coins were counterfeited and the counterfeits are of low quality, leading to the BELOIE interpretation. There is no country in the world named BELOIE.
In any case, this is a low value coin. It is not made of silver.
