Token: Canada British Columbia Kootenay 1978
Hi Bev -- You have a token, not a coin. British Columbia Indian Heritage - Series II Kootenay Dollars are made of silver-plated nickel (magnetic) and silver (non-magnetic). Annotations 'VALUE $100' should be 'VALUE $1.00' with no decimal point (dot) appearing on any of the Kootenay Dollars. Actual value is a few dollars for nickel specimens, and a few tens of dollars for silver.
The 'c' before '1841' means circa, or approximate, probably the year Chief Isadore was born. The mintmark below the Chief's left shoulder is the Sherritt Mint - Fort Saskatchewan, Alberta, Canada mark. The Kootenay (or Kutenai) natives in the canoe are harvesting wild rice. The names above this scene are known for building these types of canoes.
