China (Empire) Tai Ching Ti Kuo Silver Coin (10, 20, 50 Cents and 1 Dollar) 1910 and 1911
The area of Chinese coins -- if they are genuine and not counterfeit -- is one of the fastest growning areas in coin collecting. The coin pictured sounds to be your coin, Mike. Is it? There may be subtle differences, and those subtle differences can change value quite a bit. If you have a nice-looking coin like this, it is a good idea to seek out a knowledgeable collector or coin dealer for an in-person appraisal. See this CoinQuest page if you have a copper coin like this.
