Dear R G Williams, Thank you for your comment,
This commemorative medal was produced in 1979, and as far as we are aware would have been given to every miner working at Deep Navigation Colliery. In 1979 that would have been about 600 people. The Museum is unable to give valuations to any objects, and would suggest that you contact an independent valuer or auction house to do this.
