    Strange big Mint Coin

    Hi there my mom just gave me a coin about the size of a kennedy dollar with the following:
    it has clouds on one side a picture of a building and it say's
    United States Mint Philadelphia August 14 1969
    Department of the treasury

    other side has an eagle and a us map with states (p) that's all
    copper color

    It has no numeric value I'm sure it's just a conmemorative piece any info about it
    will be apreciated thanks
    PS I took a picture but it looks terrible i'll have to scan it later.
    thanks for your time.

    Interesting coin
    Sometime's there's not a right way, or a wrong way.
    Sometime's there's only one way.

    Where there is no economy, people will create one.

    No one rule fit's all
