It's a penny of Guernsey.


Assuming it reads New 1 Penny with a gannet below and then 1971 at the very base.


On the other side it should read S.BALLIVIE INSVLE DEGERNEREVE with three passant lions in a shield.

The value of these (if pulled from circulation) is more than likely face value i.e. 1p.


If it was as new, no wear, full lustre (like a new 2010 penny), then maybe about 50p?


Decimal coins just don't really have much of a following, even more the case I should think with Channel Islands coinages.
