Hi I found this hammered coin yesterday. I think it's a Elizabeth 1st sixpence. Can anyone confirm this please.
Regards Danny

Hi mate you've either got big hands or it ain't a sixpence my guess it's either a penny or half groat ( is there 2 dots behind lizzys head?) here's mine on the right that I found on sat and I've put it next to a sixpence and some larger coins of mine for a size reference

It could be a three pence but will need a dimension to know for sure. I don't have my spink to hand to cross reference the mint mark.

Hi,Thanks for the replies. I will measure the coin tonight but I would say it was around 17 /18 mm in diameter.

Hi I have measured the coin now and it measures 19.5 mm at it's largest diameter. It is not round so looks to have been clipped.Do this size make it a sixpence,

No, it’ll be a three pence :D
Yes I really don’t like Roman coins, I’m not joking
