Purchased some years ago on my travels to Sri Lanka (in Galle).

This 1 Massa copper coin is from the Kandy King era so dates around the 1200's.

I was informed that coin came from a pot / hoard of coins that was unearthed while locals were digging for moonstone. This is the reason for the patina, which I imagine would clean up easily for someone with the right know-how (I don't want to risk the coin by attempting anything myself).

Please note that the paper with description is not supplied. This was simply something I found while researching the coin.
