Token: US San Francisco Mint, Philadelphia Mint
These nice tokens (they are not coins) were sold as souvenirs to mint visitors. Typical retail prices today reach $20 US dollars when the token is in superb condition, but much less if worn or damaged.
If you want to sell your token to a dealer, figure that he or she will pay less than one-half of retail value. These are not hot sellers, so a substantial mark-up is required by the dealer.
