This was found by my father in an old shed in Australia in the mid-1960s. Looks very worn. Around the edge it says 'Payable in Anglesey or London'. Would appreciate any info.

Interesting hand counterpunched has an 8 over 3.
Perhaps a very worn halfpenny? I think I can see a wreath on the more crude punched side.

The host coin would appear to be this:

A Parys Mine halfpenny or Penny.
If so there's probably an edge inscription.

The weight would determine if it was a penny or a half-penny.

Quite fascinating how it got to Australia and was punched presumably decades later. Why and the significance of the date are almost certainly lost in the mists of history.

Guessing a husband had it made for himself so he wouldn't forget their wedding anniversary?

I have my wedding date in binary as the design on my wedding ring.

What? Only binary. An event that important should be in hexadecimal.
