You can show it to a reputable dealer or an experienced collector. If it's a US coin, you can look it up in A Guide Book of US Coins or if you know what it's proper name is you can find price guides online. If you know what it is or can describe it well enough for Workingman or myself to ID it, post your question on this board.

How much is a 24 karat half-dollar sized coin worth?

What does it say on it? Most modern bullion coins will give the weight of the gold in the coin in troy ounces on the coin somewhere. If your coin has that, it is rather easy to find your coin's value, just simply find the value of gold in troy ounces that day and figure out how much your coin is worth from that. If your coin doesn't have a weight listed, it should have identifiable characteristics such as the year, design, country of origin, and other ways to identify your coin. Without knowing the details about your coin it is impossible to truly answer your question.
