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.
