Unknown, possibly Catalan coin
« on: July 27, 2018, 04:12:48 PM »
Coin is 12 mm in diameter and weighs 0.7 grams. The design looks vaguely similar to some Catalan coins on the reverse although I could not find a match.

Spain, low grade silver or copper dinero, no visible date (many are ND), first issued ND (1511.) Last observed date 1698. Valencia or Zaragoza mint. Obverse: crowned portrait, reverse plant with four leaves. Many varieties exist.

An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.
