These coins have two dates, 1866 and 1966. It was minted in 1966. The year of 1866 was when the current Swedish constitution was reformed. The coin commemorates the 100th anniversary of this reform.
These nice, big coins were minted in 40% pure silver. They each contain 0.2315 troy ounces of the precious metal. Using a website such as Kitco.com, we can see that the current value of silver is $21 US dollars per troy ounce. Each coin is then worth 21 x 0.2315 = $4.85.
Most coins will be worth this silver value. If you have a fully uncirculated coin, you can add $5 to the value above.
