Hi Frazir, it doesn't seem very likely that there would be a coin of Edward VII from 1980. Without an image it's hard for us to give an opinion so you should contact a numismatist for an assessment. Further information on finding a numismatics expert can be found on our Question of the Week on coin valuations.
