I was moving stuff around in my house, when behind a built in cupboard near the floor boards was a pendent, with a coin inside of it.

The pendent is simple, with a love heart on the top.
The coin is a man ("George") on a horse wherein a cape and helmet with a sword, slaying a dragon. Underneath this is the date 1982.
On the other hand, is Queen Elisabeth looking young.

I am a website developer, and not a coin collector. I have no idea is this is worth anything, and before I go to nearest gold shop for their "valuation" i figured id better see if the coin is worth anything to collectors.

I live in West Yorkshire, England.

I found an image on google, that it looks like. I tried taking photo's myself but camara can not pick up the detail. Will use better camara if collectors like this coin.

Ok, there are 3 possibilities, depending on the size of the coin,

A sovereign will weigh in at about 8 grams and will be worth around £200-£250,

If your coin weighs about 16 grams then it's a gold proof £2 coin and it's value is in the area of £500.

The last is a proof £5 coin, this would weigh just under 40 grams and any collector would easily give you £1500 for it.

I'm off to move some furniture now just in case i'm that lucky.
