Hello there.
I managed to get such a nice coin.

2 Dukat Carl XI , City of Reval, 1672 year.

weight : 6,97g

gold 986

I would like to know if it is the real one and if it turns to be a good one then what’s the value of my coin.
thank you!

Welcome to Numista!!
A real one of that date would be manually hammered.
Yours is milled.
So not that old.

I took a look at the coinpicture enlarged.
I have now some doubts about the milled coin.
The coin has very beautiful details!

​I could not find that coin with that date in any catalog...

In 1672, the only gold coins struck in Reval were 5 dukat pieces, and as Petrus said, they were hammered. With that being said, your coin could still be made of gold--it could very well be a bullion piece--but this would not be a genuine piece from Reval.
