Great Britain Maundy three pence coin and Queen Victoria Jeton

 Collection — Folder: 1689 Coin
Identifier: SC 01641
Silver three pence coin from Great Britain depicting the bust of William III and Queen Mary. A hole was drilled into the coin, possibly done after Mary's death to evil spirits could exit the coin and render it safe for use. The Jeton has 20 stamped on it with an image of Queen Victoria on the verso. It, like the 3 pence coin, has a similar hole drilled into it at the crown of the Queen's head.
