Oh keith, sneaky. chafemasterj you got snookered. All coins have a value for spot, or precious metal content. This one will be remembered, on keith's account, no gim'mes in this game. Go for 'Is it silver' next time.

I'd say a coin that has no silver or gold (or platinum, palladium, etc) has no precious metal content. I.E. copper, zinc, iron.
So that wasn't a bad question.

If it's silver, it's from Catalonia or Valencia.

Well, it looks like Catalonia or Valencia assuming the Spanish States comment wasn't a complete diversion!

Now we need a denomination I guess. That will help determine which of the two states it is.

So that wasn't a bad question.

But dont forget about Billon /#712;b#618;l#601;n/ is an alloy of a precious metal (most commonly silver, but also gold) with a majority base metal content (such as copper). It is used chiefly for making coins, medals, and token coins.
Which this coin is not.
Let me think of a hint to give you all

After thinking about it



I have a chance of going down in the history of the CCF, AS one of the Great Game Masters that have defeated guessers.
along side the names of Spruett & Spence. Pretty sure thats it.

Was this coin around for the birth of the man who would become the last British monarch to lead an army in battle?
