    From time to time people post a thread about their smallest coin. I haven't compared this to others I have but this is definitely a contender. It's a no date (1901-1910) cash coin from Travancore, India. I measure it at 11 mm. I actually got two of them. Just for fun, here it is next to a really big coin. 1901 travancore 1 cash.jpg IMG_20210512_150830368.jpg

    Mine is about 6mm ancient from Thasos. It even has two dolphins on it. It is around .25 grams silver. Others have even smaller ancients.

    On this medal we can see Queen Mary I. of Portugal handing a penny to her happy nation:
