This is not a coin but is a commemorative medallion of some kind, with a portrait of Liberty made to resemble the obverse of a Morgan dollar,

As NumisRob stated, it is not a coin.

@evan, first welcome to CCF. Second, here is the numista link for this souvenir token:

@evan, yes it is true that there isn't a ton of info about this token on the numista website, but I was hoping to at least give you a starting point for your research. Are there any initials or marks anywhere on the token to suggest who made it?

During the period the US celebrated the 200th anniversary of its Constitution (1987), many commemorative medals were issued by private companies for collectors/souvenir seekers. Most of these pieces were not well documented at the time, and are thus difficult to fully identify today.

The scene depicted on the reverse of your medal is one that was commonly used. It is based on an 1819 painting by John Trumbull. It should be noted, however, that the Trumbull painting depicts the signing of the Declaration of Independence vs. the Constitution, but some medal manufacturers didn't let the facts get in the way of their design!

John Trumbull's Declaration of Independence


Generic medals such as the one presented do not command much attention or premium in the market. I've often seen such medals in binders labelled "Miscellaneous Tokens/Medals" on dealer tables at coin shows. They are priced at $10 or below, with many at $5.00 or below. Over the years, I've encountered a few fellow collectors who have assembled specialized collections of US Constitution commemorative pieces, so there is a some demand for them - I'm afraid the supply of generic pieces is greater than the demand, however.
