Check on the back to see if there's a mint mark letter next to the bottom of the torch. Numismedia lists the following approximate retail values as of 11/2012:

Circulated, regardless of mint mark:

Very worn condition - $3.25

Moderately worn - $3.60

Slightly worn - $4.10

Almost no wear - $4.50


No mint mark (Philadelphia):

$5.00 to $1,340 depending on quality

"D" mint mark (Denver):

$5.00 to $1,340

"S" mint mark (San Francisco):

$5.00 to $1,380

To a collector, the value depends on the mintmark and the condition. It could be worth anywhere from about a dollar to over 70 dollars.
