I need to get one of those Majahapit coins! I have just about every major pre-modern civilization covered in my ancient collection, but South Asia can be really tough, especially in the states!

What is the symbol on the obverse?

@Finn235

The obverse depicts a "sandalwoood" flower -shaped incuse (square center and 4 diagonal petals), which basically is a huge chopmark.

I'm currently collecting those Majapahit coins with an additional goal of research (i.e. different types, weights or "denominations", and varieties) as there aren't many literature about them.

The tiny coin I posted on the previous page is actually an odd variety: it is much lighter than the usual 1 masa silver (2.4 grams) and there are tiny raised dots on the reverse, which are not visible in other coins.

I do appreciate these tiny ancients. Like using loose beans or beads for money.

Here are a few I recently received for my World Gathering.

17.5, 16.6, 16 and 14.5 millimeters:




I also received a fairly small Moldovan 1 Leu note and a 50 bani coin that is the same size as a Lincoln cent.
