How to extract SRID from a feature class

I am using Desktop Basic 10.1 and 10.3 to prepare data.  The shapefiles and tifs that result are sent to a client for import to his proprietary spatial database.  All of the products I produce are built to a selected projection for each study area.


The open source software that consumes these products requires an SRID.  I have searched online and through the software.  How do I extract this information within ArcMap?  Is it even stored somewhere with the file geodatabase feature class, shapefiles, or tifs?  In the properties window I can get the details about the projection like below:



ata Type: Shapefile Feature Class
Shapefile: D:\BC_2016\BC_Bounds\Study_area\BC_Land_bounds_20160515.shp
Geometry Type: Polygon
Coordinates have Z values: No
Coordinates have measures: No

Projected Coordinate System: NAD_1983_BC_Environment_Albers
Projection: Albers
False_Easting: 1000000.00000000
False_Northing: 0.00000000
Central_Meridian: -126.00000000
Standard_Parallel_1: 50.00000000
Standard_Parallel_2: 58.50000000
Latitude_Of_Origin: 45.00000000
Linear Unit: Meter

Geographic Coordinate System: GCS_North_American_1983
Datum: D_North_American_1983
Prime Meridian: Greenwich
Angular Unit: Degree



Is there a way to extract the SRID for this spatial coordinate system?
