@97spyder, first welcome to CCF. Second, it looks like you have a modern reproduction (i.e. a fake) of a silver Shekel from ancient Israel. Here is a link to an example of the actual coin for comparison:

Thanks for the reply. I found this coin while I was digging in my back yard in Missouri about 65 years ago.

It's a well documented fake, in the wrong metal, of a silver sela of the Bar Kochba Revolt. Here's another of the ilk: http://goccf.com/t/330402

Non-silver fakes of these go back a century...see the note in the description of this fake below.
