For the sake of this thread, "tiny" will be anything smaller than a US dime. As long as it is smaller than a US dime, it counts. I'll start off with a silver Three Cent piece. They used to call these :fish scales" because they are so small...

For scale, I have a dime behind this 1956 Pakistani 1 pie. Measures 1.6 cm, 1.30 grams. I just noticed... are those die clashes on obverse and reverse?

Back before fish scales were US Three Cent pieces, the same name applied to Russian wire money...



This is a silver wire denga of Ivan IV, Grand Prince of Moscow, famously known as Ivan the Terrible (and less famously, but just as correctly, as Ivan the Awesome). This particular issue must have been made in the early part of his reign, before his declaration of the Tsardom of Russia in 1547.

I can't actually recall what the diameter of that coin is, or whether I even still have it (the photos were made way back in January 2013). But the weight is 0.34 grams, which IMHO is more than enough (um, less than enough?) to classify it as "tiny".

A "tiny" New Mexico tax token, 16 mm diameter and 0.53 g in weight.

These tokens were the means to collect the first state sales taxes in the US. This one was worth one mill (one tenth of a cent), so could be exchanged to make up the "tiny" tax on small purchases.

@fourmack

Those are very interesting, considering how easy they would be to lose. Was there a need for such a small denomination?

I like them.

At 1,5 mm this is the smallest coin I own. It was given to me by a father's friend when I was a child.
