« on: September 21, 2017, 06:11 »
G'day all, my mate found this very small copper coin and it's had us stumped. Any help would be appreciated. Cheers Mick.

Sure it looks like a groat. But there is something written where the bust should be. Gaming token possibly, there are a few 4 pence tokens. Ill check tonight in my book.

Brittanica looks a bit crudely drawn and that could mean unofficial? Cool find.
