A post medieval copper alloy Liard of the Spanish Netherlands. Charles II of Spain (1665-1700 AD) c.1692-1695 AD. Weight: 3.11 g, Diameter: 24 mm.


The coin appears to be dated 1695, but this legend is documented to have only been minted in 1692, although I have seen a reference picture to one dated 1693. Liard of Antwerp are listed for 1695.
