Just found this sorting through an old box of change i had. Looks like its plated? Someone obviously thought it was important enough to them to put a loop on it for some reason? Can someone shed some light please?


Yes, it a 1909 Edward VII farthing, with a crudely soldered copper ring on it, probably using lead solder by the looks of it.

Gold plated to make it look like a half sovereign at a distance or if drunk.

But I am sure you knew all that!
