While I’m certainly no expert on coin values, and I’d highly recommend you consult with a legit numismatist (or Joshua) first, I’m fairly confident that it’s worth very little, except for it’s historic and commemorative value, of course.
That is, unless you find the “right person” who saves collector’s items like these.
