I have this old silver coin I cant find anything about it and there are no markings on the coin to help identify it at all. one side is a big cruise ship in the water and the other is different scenes of people and a large sun. if you have any input it would be great

This does not appear to be a coin, it's some type of token.

Well it's not the Titanic

With no markings at all I doubt it's silver. I can't even guess as to what this is from but it's a generic token privately made.

It may be some type of medallion- maybe zinc or tin. I don't know enough about clothes or ships to hazard a guess as to the age. Is that fireworks above the ship? Possibly a first sailing of the ship, or after a war (I or II)? What is in the water? What is behind the ship to the right? It is a really interesting piece.

It looks like a shipboard token for a passenger ship. Period? Around the 1940's or early '50's, from the style of the ship.

the ship design is generic, the actual age may be quite modern.

This is not my token, one I borrowed from elsewhere :)

I believe I've seen that ship design on floating casino tokens.
