Here's another tiny copper coin. Again, it came with a bunch of Indian princely state coins so, given the Maltese cross, I first thought it was from Portuguese India.
I didn't find any matches in Portuguese India but Coinoscope suggested Mallorca/Majorca. I'm now reasonably confident it is indeed from Majorca, Felipe V, no date but struck 1700-46.
On the obverse you can make out a crowned head and the text HILI (presumably from Philip V).
It's irregular but the diameter ranges from 12.5mm to 14mm.
That makes it too small for a dobler (16mm according to Numista) but too big for a dinero (12mm).
Either way it will be my first Spanish provincial coin.
Some sources say the coins are copper, others say billon.

Nice find, and nice ID!
I agree on the dobler. Best I can tell, there is no legend obv on the dinero?
