Doge Leonardo Loredan ?

Doge knealing at St Mark's feet. Maybe but I am somewhat sure this is rather rare. What is the weight?

Very little.
I've lost my scales  :-\
(It's been irritating me for a few days now)
Can't even get this to register on the kitchen scales, so must be less than 1g.

Should weigh .27-.30 of a gram, the diameter is correct going on memory.

A couple of rarish coins you have asked to be identified today.

both have been sitting in the "tin" for a while, maybe two or three years have passed before I got around to doing anything with them.  I have another 40 or 50 coins to go at.
I'm supposed to be tidying as I'm told I need a new desk as this one is scruffy (that was news to me)....

Hmmm well if they are as rare as the last couple this should put my memory to a darn good test. It is a rather long time since I have studied such silver and Byzantine coins. As long as i don't have to read right to left and I didn't study it between February and May last year we have a chance.
