Workflow status: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation

A silver halfgroat of Henry VIII second coinage minted at Canterbury under Archbishop William Warham, date is 1526-32AD. hEnRIC VIII D [G REX AnG]L Z F is the obverse legend and CIVI/TAS/CAn/TOR is the reverse. There is a hole punched through the side of the coin but it is not clear if this is for a re-use for mounting or for use on a purse string. Silver coins of this period with single piercings are found in currency hoards, and so we cannot say for certain that this coin was taken out of circulation (and its use changed) before being lost. Therefore it would not currently classify as treasure. The diameter is 19mm and the weight 1.21g.
