Hi, some how my description didn't appear ?. any way the large object not sure if its a medal as it has a hole like it could have been hung on a chain. it looks like led-zinc. with coronation wrote on the bottom. more writing in the scrolls above. circle with coat of arms in centre with 2 large lions each side. I cant make all the words out. it appears to be wrote in Latin ?. on the reverse there is a king and queen. the other object is small and flat with nice detail on both sides. could this be a medieval coin. or gaming thing ? I found these metal detecting I know its not a bag seal as I have a few of these with the ridge around the edge. this little thing is flat. appreaciate any info please. jacqueline.

When trying to ID a piece it's always nice to be able to see both sides.

The bigger one is obviously a (what's left of it) coronation medal. The image of "a king and queen" would pinpoint the date of it. I'm pretty sure many of us who collect British coins/medals will recognize the people even without any inscription left. Edit: the options are Edward VII (and Alexandra) in 1902, George V (and Mary) in 1911, or George VI (and Elizabeth) in 1937.

The Latin inscriptions on the British Royal Coat of Arms are:
Dieu et mon droit (God and my right) on the ribbon below, and
Honi soit qui mal y pense (Evil to him who evil thinks) on the Garter around the shield.
But if it is a (local) variation of the COA the phrases could be different. Still, The royal couple would give you the clue to the age of the artifact.

I cannot even guess what the smaller piece is without seeing the other side.

Based on how it looks eaten away, I'm guessing the coronation medal is zinc.
