I have a coin that was gifted to me years ago. I no longer wish to be reminded of the person who gave me such coin, and was wondering if it was worth selling?

I believe it is a sixpence with the image of the Queen facing left. Around her image it says 'Victoria Dei Gratia' and 'Britt Regina FD' there is a very small JEB just under her right shoulder but above the pattern at the edge of the coin.

The back has the shield, with 1887 at the bottom and Honi Soit Qui Mal Y Pense around the shield

Any advice gratefully received!

Condition is the deciding factor. Can you post photos here?
It's a very common coin, but high grade specimens are worth 20-30. There are rare examples on which letters in Victoria are over-stamped. Photos would help us determine if yours is one of these.
