Picked this up at a "We buy Gold and Silver" for $23...came in a little grey velvet bag...has some unusual deep purple toning.
Thanks for any comments!

Your medal is a privately-struck piece (i.e., not a US Mint product) produced/marketed in 1989 by a company operating out of Dover, Delaware under the name "Federal Coin Fund."

FCF produced multiple versions of the medal:

- Silver, Proof, One-Ounce, 39mm (~1-1/2") diameter: $29
- Silver, Proof, One-Ounce, 39mm (~1-1/2") diameter, with 24K Gold Plating: $39
- Silver, Proof, One Troy Pound (i.e., 12 Troy ounces), 3-1/2" diameter: $269

Each medal was serially numbered on its edge; a number-matched Certificate of Authenticity was included.

As seen in one of your images, the medals were struck on 0.999 fine silver planchets (for comparison, US silver coins at that time were struck on 0.900 fine planchets).

The company stated the mintage limit was to be 25,000 of the one-once silver medals, with 5,000 reserved for gold-plating. I haven't seen a limit published for the large format (3-1/2 inch diameter) One Pound version.

Let me know if you have any other questions - I might be able to answer them, but no promises!
