I recently inherited a silver coin collection. This collection was hoarded for the silver and not the coin itself! The collector would buy individual coins at an auction, years ago. He would buy them, bring them home and throw them in a box. 80% were in plastic with a little sales receipts stapled to it. Amongst all these I found this token. Around the rim it is stamped .999 silver and also has a serial number. I can't seem to find any info.

It was probably minted by International Mint like the NRA "A Nation of Riflemen" series. They were available to Lifetime Members of the NRA. This medal might have been part of a lifetime membership package. This is only my best guess. I like it.

I can't find any info on where International Mint was or is but they also minted medals about History of America's Man in Space.

It may have been purchased as a collectible raffle ticket for a fundraiser like these

The NRA has had a number of tokens minted in bronze, silver and limited numbers in gold. It is worth the spot price of silver plus what ever premium the local shop that is buying it is paying. You might get a little more if somebody really wants it. Or from some body on ebay that doesn't know any better and thinks it is a real collectors item. Like most collector rounds, art bars and Bradford plates and Franklin mint items they generally don bring much if at least what was payed for them. The serial number is just another selling feature not important. As few if any companies keep a record.

The spot price for one troy ounce of silver at closing was in the area of $15.60 with what ever the pawn shop or coin shop is currently giving to buy silver. They probably won't be much over a couple dollars in addition to the spot, won't give you anything for subject content. You can ask anything you think you could get for it, but it is only worth what someone is willing to pay for it.

Would you be kind enough to give me a ballpark figure on what a collector, like yourself, might pay!?

What the local coin shop is selling generic silver rounds for currently is $19.00 to $20.00. matter a fact I am posting an NRA pewter token in the bulk thread this morning. It was in the last bulk buy, It had$2.00 price on the 2x2 before it ended up in the bulk bag with 3/4 of a lb of assorted tokens. The generic silver rounds can be bought for less than a dollar premium over the spot price, when you buy them from one of the PM bullion dealers.
Again with tokens rounds,art bars, and medals they are worth only what somebody is willing to pay for it. The desire to own is the arbitrator of value .

I wouldn't be interested in it, your best bet would be a local to you pawn shop of coin shop tht buys silver and gold. I would stay away form the stores that just buy gold and silver as you won't get a good price there You can either google silver spot price on the day day you are going to sell it to find out what it worth. as the spot price changes hourly some days.
