EPNS is ElectroPlated Nickel Silver so your spoon is not silver but a base metal with a very thin layer of pure silver deposited on the surface. 18DWTS means that 18 pennyweights (about 29 grams) of pure silver has been used in plating a dozen pieces. So your spoon originally had about 2.4 grams of silver on it. Some of this will have been lost through polishing and general wear and use so intrinsic value is practically zero.
