Some sort of fantasy piece. Since it doesn't state any precious metal content, I'd assume it's only plated.
Some design elements seem fine, while others, like the shield, are horrendously executed. Kind of odd.
Do you know where it came from?

This really is an oddity - some really cool conceptual ideas, and even ones that translated well to the metal. Others may need to be sent back to the drawing board? Really curious to hear what this coin is. Hope you find some answers!

It appears very similar to multiple medals (it's not a coin) sold by The American Mint. A quick check on eBay should present multiples of their offerings to give you an idea of current market value and what others are available.

Their original selling prices were way too high, but their production appears to have been good quality. IMO, as long as a buyer is aware that they are medals and not coins, then collecting them is a reasonable thing - just don't consider them investments as they are not likely to ever increase in value. In general, they are silver/gold-plated copper rounds - not solid precious metal.

Unfortunately, the maker of this piece is being deceptive. The paper says "lavishly clad." Cladding means to have two different metals bond to each other. There's a few different ways that can happen. If you're interested in the process, here's a good article. https://www.corrosionpedia.com/defi...6/clad-metal
What this boils down to is that the outer layer is gold, but it's very, very thin. The rest is likely a base metal. I'd bet if you take it to a coin dealer, they can pull out their metal scanner and confirm this.

As you've learned, they are not. In fact, I picked up the full set in its custom case on eBay within the last two years for less than $10 - I've used it as an educational piece when I've spoken to young collectors about exonumia.

No, they are not worthless, but I wouldn't pay more than $10 to $15 for a set.

They're not coins, they're not struck from precious metal and there is so little collector demand for them that there is almost no secondary market for them if a collector wanted to sell. Three strikes for most who would see the set!

I like medals and avidly collect them, but even I would think twice about buying one of these sets for my core collection. (As I mentioned above, I purchased a set for under $10 so that I could use it as an educational tool with young collectors. The case the medals came in was a big factor in my purchase decision.)

The chance the set will ever increase in value is so slight it's almost non-existent. For many collectors, that is a huge problem!
