COIN

Unique ID: BH-4C0C61

Object type certainty: Certain
Workflow status: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation

An incomplete silver Double Patard of Charles the Bold, Duke of Burgundy, 1467-1477. The coin retains part of a circular piercing, located at 10 o'clock on the obverse.

Dimensions: 23.9mm diameter, 0.4mm thick. Weight: 1.68g.

Notes:

The coin has been pierced, indicating a secondary function which would normally indicate that it should be considered as potential Treasure (under Treasure Act 1996). However, coins dating after AD1180 with similar piercings are also known in hoards of currency, suggesting that such objects could re-enter circulation as coins, and not all coins were pierced to convert them into objects such as pendants. It therefore cannot be said with confidence whether this particular object was regarded as a coin or as another type of object at the time that the coin was deposited.
