I can't find that reverse after looking through coins with key search words elizabeth 25 years jubilee etc.
An image of the obverse might help.
Probably dated 1978 or 1977.
My favorite album!

Not a coin, some sort of medallion.
Always show picture of both sides when posting.

Silver hallmarks are for Birmingham 1977, the year of Queen Elizabeth II's silver jubilee.
It is a good medallion sold as a souvenir at the time. Sadly, these things are a bit out of fashion, so the value will largely be the silver value.

This is the reverse.
Thanks for the replies, looks like it is not a coin.

@ PaddyB...with those hallmarks, was this issued through The Royal Mint? I think not or is T&S the maker?

T & S is for Turner & Simpson Ltd of Legge Lane Birmingham, so not The Royal Mint. They seem to have stopped in 1979.

If you ever need to check out makers names from Hallmarks on British or Irish Silver, this website will get you there:

Which Queen?

Well only 2 other Queens ruled for 25 years unless it was a consort and generally the craze in Royal collectibles and anniversary tatt started only with the 1887 Golden Jubilee.

It looks way too modern for Elizabeth I's anniversary in 1583/84 and as far as I know Victoria in 1862 was too busy mourning Albert to care about Silver Jubilees.
Loving Halfcrowns. British and Commonwealth coins 1750 - 1950 and anything Kiwi.
If it's round, shiny and silvery I will love it.

I need to get my eyes checked. I read mounting instead of mourning!!! Given Victoria's appetite for rumpy pumpy (proabably second only to food), my mis-read gave me a good chuckle (even if unintended).
