Interesting find indeed.

 

Well you'll first need to check if the coin is silver or not and there are many method to confirm your find over the net. One common test is the magnet test. If the coin is attracted to strong magnet, then it is not silver and it is a fake.

 

I see a lot of bums and irregulars on the coin surfaces. That is not a good sign. Genuine coins surfaces should be smooth.

 

Weight of coin - 13.5g

Diameter - 31mm

The coin don't attract to magnet and as for weight and diameter, it should still within range.
