Depends on its weight and current gold value in whichever country it is.
You can weigh it and work it out and that would be the minimum price and a collector would pay more.

I agree with what has been said,You can view it from a scrap point of view or what a collector will pay.Your pics are not the best quality so will do my best?.
Looks to be of hollow construction? so you are probably looking at under 5 grams in weight.It would scrap between 20.00 to 40.00.If the condition is good with no major dings or dents you should aim for between 75.00 to 100.00 in the collectors market.Now we all know about the website for this type of thing.on there you could add far more.Best of luck & please this is just MO. regards Gary

If a hole has been drilled at approx,6oclock this will effect the collectors value downwards.The hole would probably have been drilled for a saftey chain to go through. regards Gary
