Please tell us what the inscriptions say. The pictures are too fuzzy to read them.

An odd medal, the only reference I can find to 'Gulielmus' was that it was used in various inscriptions on coins by William IV of Britain.

Other then that, I am unable to find anything else that relates to your medal.

Well, on instinct, without knowing its value, I would say it be worth around $20, by someone just seeing it as an interesting copper medal or token.

If it is able to be identified, then the value, if it turns out to be some rare or collectable item, or able to be linked to a significant event/time,the value tends to increase. Until it is identified, the value above may be what someone might pay, say if it was listed on eBay, where someone may just see it as an odd token that they want to buy as it looks interesting, but unsure of its value.

I would suppose your best approach would be to wait to see if someone here can recognize the item, or inquire at your local coin store.

I found something on the inscription in the web link to the side at number 13553, TOR.D.G.ANG.REX, and on 13552, it says something about the man on the coin, hope you have a translator!

I just found out the identity of your item. It commemorates William the Conquerer, as GULIELMUS refers to the name William only.

The link to the left from this post shows an identical medal to your coin. I found one on eBay selling for $200. If this pricing is fair, I would guess your one to be somewhere around $50-100 due to the wear on your piece.

You guys homed right in on it. The one above comes from a Stacks auction where it sold for $125 US dollars in 2010. Value might be a tad more today. The Stacks piece is gorgeous. We thank them for their copyright release to CoinQuest. Your two medals will be worth much less than the Stacks medal due to condition.

Dates under the flaming urn are birth (Nat), coronation (Cor), and death (Mort).

Here is the auction description (Obv = Obverse, 'heads' side, Rev = Reverse, 'tails' side):

Price realized: 125 USD (Approx. 89 EUR / 79 GBP / 120 CHF)
Lot description:
Obv. William the Conqueror (1066-1087) in winged helmet. Rev. Funerary urn and flames. From Dassier’s Kings and Queens of England series, deep glossy red. (175-225)
