    Go buy a coin book. They are available at book stores and some magazine stores.
    There will probably be some information on how to grade the coin, as well as the value.

    This guide is usually a bit on the high side as far as values, but it gives you some idea. Condition is everything in coins. The better the condition, the more valuable the coin. If it is in pristine "as it left the mint" condition, it could be worth anywhere from $530 to $47,500. To command the higher values, not only does the coin have to be uncirculated, but it has to have a near complete absence of marks or signs of impacts wtih other coins. Gold is very soft and it shows the affects of these impacts much more readily than coins made of harder alloys (copper, silver, nickel, etc) If it has been circulated, the guide list the value from $400 to $460. Again, probably a bit on the high side, but it gives you some idea.

    Contact a local coin club. I whatever you do don't try to clean it in any way, I have repetedly seen coin values destroy because someone cleaned it up to get it appraised. JL
