Anyone know what this coin is?

Found 2nd Nov 2011
Its set in a casing so cant see the other side, think its meant to be worn as a necklace.

Says
victoria dei gra brill regina fid def ind imp around the edge of the coin.

Any ideas what it is?

I had a look at that site but cant tell what coin it is without seeing the other side or is there another way to tell?

OHHH, thought you were all taking the p with the values, is it actually worth something then?

Looks like it is a gold sovereign

The phrase "VICTORIA DEI GRA BRITT REGINA FID DEF IND IMP" is mostly abbreviated from Latin. The literal definition is - "Victoria by the Grace of God, Queen of the British territories, Defender of the Faith, Empress of India".

This expression and variations of it appear on the obverse of all pre-decimal coins of all British Empire/Commonwealth countries.

It looks like a half sovereign set in a ring

As i said in the first post.

Is there anywhere to take this too that could tell me about it and maybe a value - Jewellers?
