I just found a chinese coin or medal that has a picture of Nurhaci on the front and dates of his reign. But what is it and what is the value? There is a dragon on the back if that helps. Thanks

It's part of a series of "fantasy coins" made in China; you can find them with each of the Qing Dynasty emperors. Here's an old thread with pics of some similar "coins".

The obverse is not based on the design of a genuine coin; the Chinese Empire never featured portraits of the emperor on coinage, and the Republic wouldn't have issued coins featuring long-gone monarchs. The dragon is coped from either the "side view" dragon like on the ones above, used on the coinage of Yuan Shi-Kai, or the "coiled facing" dragon of the Empire.

I've got the same set of coins in a nice booklet with a brief history of each emperor in English and Chinese. Picked up in Kuala Lumpur a couple of years ago. Never noticed the dates before. All the reverses are the same.

They are almost certainly made of cheap white metal and not silver

Replica and fantasy Chinese dollars like these typically sell for 1 or 2 dollars each.

Hello, I have seen 50 United States Quarters Dollar Bills (Companion Set) on e-bay. The bills look attractive. I have attached an image of one of the bill. The price the seller is asking for all 50 states and Puerto Rico bill(Total 51 bills) is $16[$14+$2(S&H)]. Is this the good price? Do these make good collection?
Thank you.
