Nice -- It is a reproduction of a US St. Gaudens gold piece, often heralded as America's most beautiful coin. The large size of your coin reveals its counterfeit status. It is worth a few US dollars.

A genuine 1907 (the date is in Roman numerals) St. Gaudens is worth thousands of dollars. You can see a picture of one at the first [coinquest.com] Web Reference to the left. The second Web Reference shows a modern 2009 reproduction of the coin as produced by the US Mint for sale to collectors.

I've never understood Larger sized counterfiets/replicas. I had a Einsenhower dollar coin that was about 4inches wide!

For me, I always thought the large size was an effort to differentiate the copies as souvenir-type collector items, rather than an intentional counterfeit. I had a 4 inch Lincoln penny, silver-toned rather than copper, back in the 70's when I was a kid. And I think I also had a Kennedy Half dollar, but it didn't stick in my memory like the giant penny did. It might have been an Ike like yours.

Yes, my word ‘counterfeit’ is too harsh for this. It is clearly a ‘replica.’ They also make miniature ones, a fraction of an inch in diameter.
