“At first I wasn’t sure what it was,” Burgess said. “It didn’t look so much like a coin, but like a brown wafer.”
Upon further study, Burgess noticed small markings: a crown, three lions, and some numerals. The coin turned out to be an approximately 313-year-old English silver sixpence, issued only during the reign of King William III, who ruled England from 1689 to 1702, according to researchers.
