The silver one has serial number (something like '911') on the edge besides TK&S.
If yours does not have serial number than it is bronze.

Thanks for the answer but FWANG 2450 said that it can be bronze or brass and that is my question , how can I differenciate between these 2 metals ?

HI thank you then I resume that only silver coins have something engraved on the edge of the medal , I hope I 'm right . Then my question is  how can we identify a brass coin from a bronze coin ? :blink:   thanks

As NGC label indicated, this is a copper medal. Usually,freshly made red copper coin is designed as RD (red), slightly toned copper coin (most original red color still visible) is designed as RB (red brown), and circulated copper coin or uncirculated copper coin with 10% less red color is designed as BN (brown). Your medal, based on the picture, most likely will be uncirculated BN.

All depend on what is your definition and view of "worthless".

If I paid $0.01 and sold for $0.02, then one view is that I made a 100% profit  :lol:
