'Sol de Oro' means, roughly, 'Dollar of Gold.' But not quite. At first Peru's Sol de Oro coins were made out of silver. But in 1943 they changed to brass. Your 1951 Dollar of Gold is made out of brass and not worth very much.
In worn condition these coins are worth less than $1 US dollar. As condition improves, the value goes up:
worn: less than $1 US dollar approximate catalog value
average circulated: $3
well preserved: $8
fully uncirculated: $15
Be sure you understand what 'catalog value' means. It is explained on our Terminology page.
