I have this Cook Islands Capricorn Commemoration Coin that is spelt Blizabeth II. Is this a rare coin and worth getting authenticated?

It appears to be a token of private manufacture. Note no face value is indicated.
Coins were meant to be spent.

I suspect that the URL should not be posted here, but I found this on a website of items from China. It is 24kt gold plated. This is an interesting, and not at all surprising mistake on their part, but not worth anything.

I suspect the Chinese fake-makers are trying to bump up the value of their "products" by deliberately creating spelling errors like this.

@davjenn, sorry but I agree with the others. You almost certainly have a fake coin with virtually zero value--if it were me, I'd try to return this to the seller and get back my purchase price.

Agree with others comments. The way the topic is presented is also not consistent with how many nations would like to be seen.
