    my grandad gave me this 92.5% silver coin, and ive tried to find some research about it but i cant find anything out :/,
    so if anyone knows anything about it, could you inbox me with some info,
    the coin is; queen elizabeth 1 1558-1603 silver coin with william shakespeare in the background,
    i've got a certificate for it and it says they was only 5,000 of them and this coin is the 1937th coin

    thats like the best i can take a pic off it

    Does it have a monetary value on it because i think it might be a medal rather than a coin. Theres only one Shakespeare coin I can think of and from your images they dont match.

    Anything released by the royal mint without a value attached to them (i.e a £1 coin etc) is refered to as a medal instead of coin. I believe its from the Kings and Queens of Great Britain commemorative collection produced by the royal mint. £100 is an over estimation as I have seen the gold versions go for much less than that.
    Has it got the coat of arms of the Tudor House on the reverse?

    yes it has

    I didnt know they ever did it in silver. All I know is that its from the Kings and Queens of Great Britain commemorative collection produced and released by the royal mint in 2009 (at least thats when the gold ones were released). Im damned if I can find anything else about it on the internet though!
    Ive seen the gold ones in the past go for around £90/£100 assuming they are in mint condition.
