I nearly entered until you decided to ban silver - why can I ask seems rather Draconian.
Loving Halfcrowns. British and Commonwealth coins 1750 - 1950 and anything Kiwi.
If it's round, shiny and silvery I will love it.

...Ironically enough, I've had pretty much the same idea before, but had to skip on it, as it would have been posted immediately after an extremely similar round. (I hoped to do it in a later round, but you did it first.)

I'll have to check if I have an even smaller 5th century AE4 [EDIT: turns out I do have at least one, but I'd need to get a camera to photograph it], but I've previously described this one as 10 mm in diameter...




Roman Empire, Leo I, AE4
Obverse: DN LEO [PF AVG] (or similar)
Reverse: monogram in wreath (mintmark off flan)
10 mm, weight not taken

The last photo is on a British sixpence for scale.

I know we did smallest overall early on, but pretty sure we haven't done smallest copper or silver before. Good idea for whoever wins this round?

Small copper is a lot harder than small silver or small gold; few civilizations ever produced copper coins less than 10mm, and I believe that the Travancore cash are the smallest modern coppers.

This is my smallest round copper that is firmly identifiable

Ancient India, post-Maurya kingdoms of Ujjain, or early Satavahana Empire
C. 150-100 BC
6mm, 0.34g (1/8 karshapana?)

Obv: Elephant walking right
Rev: Open circles (Ujjain symbol)

I can kind of see it, but if it's where I think it is, it's really off center (only one of the four circles is visible, plus a small arc of another at 11:30).

Nice one @finn! My smallest copper coin is also from the Indian subcontinent. Here is a AE Unit from the Malwa Empire dating to 300-500 AD. You can make out a conch shell on one side and the characters for Ji Shnu on the other. The diameter is about 8 mm.
