I just wanted to know the value as I've went to a coin shop and was told its at least 10 times its face value at least, any opinions?
Was corrected and told it wasn't a die crack.

Hi there,

I looked at the photos.   It is "post mint damage" (aka PMD).    Those cracks on the coin happened after the coin was issued by the Mint.   As a result, the value is just $2.

  Smile from your heart.  ;D

 Canadian Coin & Currency which is a RCM dealer

and

torontogoldsilver.com

They said at CC&C That its from impurites in the alloy 100% was looked at for 10 minutes at least

Get another opinion from a group of error coin collectors on this site:

http://www.coincommunity.com/forum/forum.asp?FORUM_ID=139

See what those collectors suggest.  Everyone is entitled to their opinion without having the coin in-hand.

  Smile from your heart.  ;D
