No longer a coin - after a hole has been made in it (as a pendant), it is an artefact and should be considered treasure! I would pop it down to your FLO at your local museum!

Even if it wasn't an artefact, it's silver and over 300 years old so would be classed as treasure anyway no?

No, not a single coin. You might want to read the Treasure Act info on here for the full info ::g

Thank you, yes I had slightly misread the guidance....

"Any metallic object, other than a coin, provided that at least 10 per cent by weight of metal is precious metal (that is, gold or silver) and that it is at least 300 years old when found. If the object is of prehistoric date it will be Treasure provided any part of it is precious metal."

I`m looking at the date and seeing 5 numbers.
15614.
The 4 seems too far away from the 6 compared to other examples I have just checked.
Is it an attempt at an overstrike of a 1561, which went off course.
Bearing in mind I know hardly anything about Silvers, does anyone else see this.
Cheers, ::g

A lot of the dated Elizabeth coins have the last digit overstruck/adjusted.....saves making a new die! ::g
